Former J & E Hall Director of Engineering Dave Ball was one of the most respected figures in refrigeration. His death last month at the age of 72, after a short illness, came as a shock to family, friends and colleagues. J & E Hall Managing Director Andrew Bowden pays tribute to him.
The passing of a good friend, Dave Ball, was a great loss to J & E Hall and the refrigeration industry. His knowledge and experience was second to none and both company and industry benefited greatly from this for more than 40 years. Dave rose through the ranks at J & E Hall to director level and even after retirement was still working as a senior advisor to the company.
