Our History


Johnson & Starley have been providers of comfort since 1922. They have long been recognised as a company at the forefront of innovation in the UK domestic heating and ventilation market. The journey to establishing such a reputation began in Blackpool nearly a hundred years ago when two businessmen – by the names of Mr Johnson and Mr Starley – opened a small but ambitious garage business. Thanks to a clear vision, pioneering spirit and no small amount of hard work, Johnson & Starley was soon producing warm air heating systems utilising waste oil from their garage.


Innovative heating advancements

Decades of successes ensued, seeing the Johnson & Starley name associated with many of the major advancements in heating solutions. When condensing boilers became mandatory in 2005, Johnson and Starley yet again applied its flair for innovation and began the chapter in our story that saw the creation of the high energy efficiency boilers we’re famed for. Of course, such energy efficiency is a high priority in the modern world, and so the demand for high quality ventilation systems is bigger than ever too. Which is why, in recent years, we’ve developed products that address condensation problems more effectively and efficiently than any other on the market.

Best of British since 1922

Our boilers are designed and manufactured in Great Britain and since 1922 we have been supplying the UK market with heating solutions. From humble beginnings, the Johnson & Starley story is one of innovation and progress. And it’s a story we keep alive to this day- by proudly continuing to provide ground-breaking solutions to the evolving demands of our customers.
