Our specialist engineers carry out repairs and servicing upon all makes and ages of organ blowing and humidification equipment.

We manufacture and install new machines, supply quality reconditioned equipment, carry out overhauls and relocate equipment. If it is organ blower or humidifier related, we are here to help you. Call us on 01202 679920, or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your requirements, and, for a no obligation quotation.
As of close of business 29th September 2023 we shall be shutting the doors of St Michael’s Works in Poole for the very last time. Operations will continue thereafter from our new premises in the village of Sturminster Marshall. Telephone and email remain unchanged.
The beginnings of Watkins & Watson can be traced back to before the close of the 19th century. The early 20th century saw significant production from the works at White Lion Street, Islington, with the company involved in many areas of air movement and related technologies.
In the early 1970’s production moved from Islington and the industrial, medical and organ blowing divisions separated, with only the latter still retaining its identity. Today, from our Poole based works we are dedicated to maintaining the craft of pipe organ blowing and humidification. Our service engineers operate nationwide on a daily basis maintaining equipment from a variety of manufacturers and of all ages.
In September of 2019, Martin Legg, who, as many will know, has been a steadfast presence within the company for more than thirty years, was joined by his brother, Rob, in acquiring 100% of the company stock in which they now share equal control. A move that was greeted very positively by staff and customers alike.
Rob comes from a marine engineering background, where he held a managerial position with a well known luxury super yacht manufacturer. He had previously developed his skills in the field of prestigious sports cars. He brings his own diverse set of skills, and new thinking, into our portfolio.
Martin and Rob have an eye on the future, yet, remain respectful of the company’s fine heritage. They will ensure that we continue to offer good customer service whilst developing our products and field engineering services in line with the needs of today’s pipe organ industry.
