JD Cooling Group
With over 30 years in the refrigeration and HVAC industry, John is currently Chairman of the UK’s leading refrigeration contractors – JD Cooling Group. John went straight from school into refrigeration and after attending college in Willesden for a number of years, John moved on to work as a service engineer for a number of local service providers, repairing anything from a central pack in a supermarket to a cooling system in a crop store. In 1987 John moved off the tools and worked as a sales engineer with Dean & Wood, also working in sales for a major contractor up to the turn of century. The summer of 2000 saw John start his own company – JD Cooling Systems. Starting with just two engineers and an administrator - the company has grown to turnover £30 million+ employing over 140 people across six UK offices. John’s passion for innovation, customer satisfaction and commitment to people is at the heart of this success.
