In 1992, a gentleman by the name of Peter Leiss purchased the Jenny division of Homestead Industries and relocated the plant to Somerset, Pennsylvania across the way from his privately owned Tool & Die, Machining, Welding, Fabricating and ASME Code Air Compressor Tank Shop. In 1998, Davey Compressor Company was purchased and joined the Jenny product offering. Davey Compressor, an off-shoot of the Davey Expert Tree Company, was a leading innovator in the air compressor field. The company designed and built the world's first, portable, air-cooled air compressor in the late 1920's and has remained on the cutting edge of compressor technology.
On November 20, 2003, Jenny purchased the Emglo line of Industrial Stationary Air Compressors and the entire air compressor pump manufacturing facility from Black & Decker/DeWALT. Jenny and their affiliated companies had been supplying and manufacturing a large number of parts, components, and assemblies for Emglo for over 30 years. In keeping with their heritage of being a leading innovator and manufacturer of the finest available equipment, they manufacture a complete and extensive line of Hand Carry, Single and Two-Stage Wheeled Portable, Service Vehicle Compressor, Industrial Stationary, Base Plated Mounted, Climate Control and Fire Sprinkler Compressors.
If you are the do-it-yourselfer, homeowner or small contractor, the Jenny hand-carry models are perfect for you. Available in both electric and gas, they all feature cast iron cylinders for extended pump life, and the aluminum head helps in creating better heat dissipation. There are over seven different Jenny hand carry models available, so you are sure to find one that suits your needs.
For the serious contractor, Jenny carries a wide range of products for your application. Their wheelbarrow compressors are available in both single and two stage, as well as electric and gas. All wheelbarrow compressors feature a heavy duty, splash lubricated cast iron compressor pump, and each one is designed, tested and proven to meet the demands of the construction and rental industry
Because Jenny is formerly known as Emglo air compressors, virtually all of the part numbers are interchangeable. If you need any additional information regarding parts, oil, air filters or more, feel free to browse around the following or give us a call at 1-866-203-2944 for more information.
