Jesco is a private company originally formed by Johnson Engineering co. ltd in 1975.

We are often asked what Jesco means? The name Jesco was derived by using the first letters of the parent company, Johnson Engineering co. An S was added after engineering to signify sales and so the name became Jesco and stood for Johnson Engineering Sales company.

Jesco was formed as a sales company but the complexity of hydraulics plus the overwhelming demand for hydraulic servicing soon had customers demanding service so after just 2 years the building at 210 Clyde street was altered and the service division form J Johnston was relocated to the Jesco building. From that point on Jesco operated in both a sales and service as a division of J Johnstons.

Since it’s inception Jesco has undergone some major changes and has been involved in the service and or component supply to an extraordinary diverse range of clients. We have a serviced everything from the ships and fishing boats plying our coastlines, Both Wind and Hydro electric power generation, The huge equipment used in the exploration, smelting and mining industries, All types and sizes of Crane servicing, All aspects of the Timber industry plus everything in between, right down to the tiny hydraulic rams used by our rescue services.
