How it all started

Thornhvac was founded in 2000 by James and Helen Thornhill who had built a successful career in HR consultancy, running management performance programmes for senior managers and teams in the engineering sector.

Their clients included Agfa, ICI, PowerGen , Scottish Hydro Electric and British Gas and their work won them a CIPD Management Research prize.

James and Helen’s experience in the engineering industry led them to launch Thornhvac, a niche recruitment business specialising in heating, ventilation and air conditioning resourcing.
