Climalife (IDS Refrigeration) in the UK is extremely proud of this history and will continue to share the Group’s experience and expertise with their customers and partners through 2015 and beyond.
The history of Dehon
In 1941 Établissement Joseph Peintre set up operations in France too, and after the second World War the concept of controlled temperature became fundamental and part of the development of the refrigeration industry. The commercial, industrial and domestic refrigeration market literally took off and saw the introduction of deep-freezing, freeze-drying, air conditioning and climatic engineering with new molecules being developed to support the broadening of applications.
In 1952, the group’s first refrigerant packaging station was built in France and a second in 1959. This was necessary to support major users such as the Navy. The creation of depots located in strategic towns enabled Dehon to offer a 24-hour service.
The change from CFCs to HCFCs could have had considerable economic impact for the group, however with a strategy of continual innovation and development, the Dehon Group created new products, such as heat transfer fluids and also expanded its export subsidiaries in 1990.
