The Air Conditioning Company commenced trading in 1986 in London with
Chairman Jeff Salmon (now famed for his lead role in Channel 4's
series, Four Rooms) at the helm. Jeff was the first person to bring
portable air conditioners into the UK and he decided to create a
mascot to help publicise us to the masses. Some weeks later Cucumberman
was born... a lewd radio character who liked to rap about air

We believe we are the only Air Conditioning Installation company in
the UK boasting our own fully functional showroom with examples of
every type of Air Conditioning System available. Indeed, our showroom
also doubles up as our headquarters and we welcome you, your designers
or architects to visit us.

upon a brochure illustration. Further, you will be able to see the
quality of our installations.
