Jenny Information

Jenny goes way back, with roots that date back to the late 1870s and its subsequent incorporation in 1892 as Homestead Valve Manufacturing Company. Homestead Valve was located in Coraopolis, Pennsylvania where they designed, cast, machined, and tested a variety of ball and plug valves for the steel industry initially.

In 1927, Jenny revolutionized cleaning across the whole world with their invention of the steam cleaner. “Steam Jenny”, as it was labeled at the time, facilitated the cleaning of dirty, greasy parts and equipment in an efficient and cost-effective manner, thereby reducing the amount of time and labor required.

Jenny ventured the next 65 years producing many new products like a positive displacement triplex pump which is the backbone of every pressure washer currently manufactured, and a self-service car wash system.

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 most notably designed and built the world’s first, portable, air-cooled air compressor in the late 1920s 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 prior to the relocation of their plant to Renosa, Mexico. 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.

Their compressors range from as small as 8-gallon to upwards of 200-gallon tanks. A very impressive fleet!
