An engineer-led approach focused on delivering compliant and cost-effective solutions. The hallmark of JDS is a technical approach that gives you complete peace of mind in the compliance and cost-effectiveness of your building services systems.
JDS was founded by our Managing Director Matt Newing in 1999.
We have a number of policies in place that reflect our responsible approach to our work.
We hold a number of accreditations and memberships.
Come and meet the JD Services team.
JD Services HVAC Ltd celebrates 20 years in business in March 2019. Matt Newing, the company’s founder and Managing Director, said: “We are proud to have reached this milestone. Thank you to the many clients who are a valued part of our company’s growth and success. We look forward to our continued partnership and the opportunity to serve you for decades to come.”
Matt also thanked the JDS team. “JDS is known for its people: their knowledge, experience and integrity. Because of our people, we will continue to grow and be recognised as a leader in building services, offering innovative solutions in an ever-changing industry and delivering our corporate mission to provide engineering excellence. Seeing staff progress and watching the success of our office and engineering apprentices is an exciting reminder that our business is in good shape as we set out on the next 20 years.”
When JDS started in 1999, Matt was its only employee. He worked from home as a mobile air conditioning service contractor and the business turned over £50,000 in its first year of trading. The company’s first direct client was Regus St Albans where Matt met his future wife and JDS Company Director, Kim.
Fast forward 20 years and a lot has changed. Today, the company employs 50 people, has offices in Dartford and Manchester, delivers contracts to hundreds of clients, and offers a complete building services maintenance solution. Turnover in the last financial year was over £4 million.
While the size of the business has changed, the core approach hasn’t. Matt said: “We’ve always had an engineer-led approach that is focused on delivering compliant and cost-effective solutions. It’s served us well, as has our integrity and commitment to customer service.”
Operations Manager Claire Moroney added: “I joined JDS in 2004 and from the outset it was clear that the main focus of the company was to provide exemplary customer service. Over the years the company has grown and we have expanded the range of services we provide but we have never lost sight of this goal. I am proud to have been part of this flourishing business and look forward to an exciting future.”
JDS will be celebrating its milestone anniversary throughout 2019 with events to thank employees, suppliers and clients for the vital role they have played in the company’s success.
It’s National Apprenticeship Week and here at JDS we are proud to fully support this scheme and currently have four engineering apprentices within our team.
Being able to provide apprenticeships is something close to our Managing Director, Matt Newing's heart who said ‘I was fortunate enough to have been given the opportunity to join a five year apprenticeship with PME in the late 1980’s.'
The experiences and technical knowledge I gained throughout this time I still use nearly 30 years later. I am delighted that JDS can offer apprenticeships and look forward to the continued succession rate we see year after year.
To comply with the new standards, a training course must be attended and passed by electrical engineers.
We are pleased to announce that our Electrical Supervisor, Al, successfully completed the 18th Edition Update Course for electrical engineers back in July 2018 in readiness for the changes. We are very proud of our training arrangements here at JDS, always making sure that our engineering staff are fully qualified with the most up to date certification, ensuring compliancy always.
