History of JEH Group

120 years of refrigeration expertise

J & E Hall’s long standing history goes back to 1785 when John Hall began his one man workshop in Dartford, Kent.  The company quickly became known for manufacturing steam engines and gun carriages which were exported to Europe and Asia.  It was not until the late 19th century that J & E Hall manufactured the cold air machine that gained the company its reputation for refrigeration innovation that still stands today. 

It was reported in The Times in 1886 that J & E Hall’s first cold air machines froze 30,000 mutton carcasses being shipped from The Falkland Islands to the UK.  J & E Hall designed the first two stage carbon dioxide compressor in 1886 and, as early as 1910 supplied refrigeration equipment to the National Skating Palace. 

Today we continue to develop our solutions and our people in the same innovative way.  With over 120 years of refrigeration expertise, we are proud of our past and look forward to our future.
