Leaving a legacy

About our unique history

Chandley Ovens has come a long way since 1944 when our company was founded by Tom and Sadie Chandley.  The Chandley family cared deeply about their workers and left a lasting legacy: today, the company is now owned equally by all of its employees.


Since 1944

Chandley Ovens offers the best of British design & innovation combined with over 75 years of engineering excellence.

From our first ovens manufactured in the 1940’s right through to the present day with our industry-leading Compacta deck oven, we constantly strive to innovate and make our ovens the very best they can be.

In 1968, Eric Dyson joined Chandley Ovens and his family would later come to inherit the company. In 2022, the Dyson family passed the mantel on to the companies’ employees in the form of an employee-owned trust. 

From innovations in design, build and customer care through to revolutionising payment and finance options for our customers, we are proud of our past but always looking to the future.
