J&N Food Equipment value the status they’ve earned in the industry. Over the last two decades we have given all new and existing customers the exact same time and dedication. We’ve built a reputation across the UK and worldwide that we are proud of, as reflected in our testimonials.

When We Started?

In 2000 Ian and Sandra started the business using their spare bedroom and garage as space for their business. In 2002 they relocated the business; this move gave them a huge outbuilding space with office attached. J&N Food Equipment continued growing and in 2004 the first sales person was taken on.

Ian and Sandra decided to move the business away from their home in 2006 into Unit C on the industrial estate. Fast forward seven years to 2013 and the business stayed on the same industrial estate however moved to units G and H, this gave them far more office space but also a workshop area and showroom. They kept on unit C as extra storage space as the business was growing rapidly. Enabling us to take on the first engineer and therefore J&N Food Equipment could offer servicing and repairs.

In June 2019, J&N Food Equipment moved to bigger premises, and has a larger team than ever before with nine staff members. Unit K was designed and built exactly to the varying needs of the growing business, giving the opportunity to provide the best possible service.

Whilst being a stay at home mum, Sandra did the accounting for her Father until she returned to employment in the education department. Sandra worked at the local senior school as a teacher’s aide, working with children with different kinds of educational needs. Ian and Sandra decided there was a gap in the food machinery industry within the area, so in July 2000 they set up J&N Food Equipment Ltd.

After 12 years Kevan decided to change direction and help set up an FSA approved meat department for a local food service company. All the way through Kevan’s career he used J&N Food Equipment’s products, therefore it was no surprise when he joined the sales team in September 2015, Kevan said “since then I’ve never looked back”.
