We have been designing and manufacturing products for the HVAC+R market, continuously striving to offer our customers more choices, better lead times and competitive prices as well as maintaining our renowned excellent service levels and high quality products.

Beehive was originally established in the historic horse racing town of Newmarket during 1968 by The Chairman (Frederick J. Bartram). The Chairman had already been working in the refrigeration industry since the early 1940's so had an extensive field of experience in air conditioning design and was instrumental in creating the foundations to which our design programs in use today have been built around.

Sadly, the Chairman (Frederick J. Bartram) passed away in 2014 after nearly 50 years in the company, working almost every day, even at the age of 93. The key elements he used to build the foundations of the company on, are still as present today as they ever were.

We are still situated in Newmarket today and The Chairman's son, Robert, is the Managing Director whilst his Grandson, Mark is a Director of the company. Family is a core part of Beehive and this is reflected in the care and attention we give each and every one of our customers and employees.

Beehive manufacture well over 100,000 units per annum to various specifications and sizes and have branched out into many different areas of the HVAC industry including manufacture of pack housing units (complete with coils) and also high pressure CO2 coils to suit the latest technology in supermarkets today. This is in addition to our standard ranges of chilled water fan coils, DX units, condenser coils, coaxial (tube-in-tube) condensers and much more - just check out the products section for further details!
