Founded in 1965 by Edward Jordon, the Jordon Group formerly known as E Jordon (Refrigeration) Ltd have established themselves nationally as leading specialists in the shopfitting, refrigeration & air-conditioning industry. Since our rapid expansion over the years, our main priority is to maintain the same friendly and personal reputation that we have proudly built since our infancy..
The business has seen many changes over the years, from staff members to going digital, office changes to surviving harsh economic times, but one thing remains the same we’re still ‘old enough to know, large enough to cope and small enough to care.’
But let us tell you a bit more about our story so far.
In 1965, founded by the late Edward Jordon, E Jordon (Refrigeration) Ltd was established at the old cooperative building on Mough Lane in Chadderton, Oldham.
In the year of 1966 Paul Edward Jordon was born, the latest edition to the Jordon family.
The following year, Edward Jordon makes his inaugural exhibition in Manchester.
In 1971, Edward Jordon travelled to Italy to meet with Arneg, thus a very strong relationship is cemented between the two refrigeration specialists. After hard work, in 1985, Paul Jordon qualifies with distinction and is employed as a full time refrigeration engineer.
By 1990, the company has seen a significant growth in size, and now employs 28 staff including engineers, joiners, sales and administration.
The following year, in 1991, Paul Jordon is elected an associate member of the Institute of Refrigeration.
In 1998, Paul Jordon takes sole control of the Jordon Group as Managing Director, 2 years later in 2000, Edward Jordon is awarded a certificate of achievement for 35 years of continued growth and customer satisfaction.
The Jordon Group company name is born in 2001, as the take over of all commercial refrigeration and shelving activity at Rock Refrigeration goes ahead. The organisation is experiencing fast moving growth and so moves premises to a building in Manchester triple the size.
Due to success and continual growth, in 2007, the head office is relocated again to the 38,000 square foot premises on Quebec Street in Oldham.
With 42 staff members and business activity spreading to the midlands and beyond, the Jordon Group is awarded the Investors in People accreditation in 2008.
Extensive shopfitting, refrigeration and cold room work is completed on Manchester Airport’s Terminal 2 in 2009, and by 2010 the sales and joinery teams are doubled within the shopfitting division and the business is operating completely nationwide.
