Ernest H. Hill Ltd was established as an engineering and manufacturing company in 1841.
Founded and still based in Sheffield, England, a name synonymous with fine quality and sound engineering practice, Hill have been involved in the innovation, design and manufacture of fluid transfer equipment for the last 160 years.

Amongst the early products, under the long established trademark Nesthill, was an air compressor pump designed for a veterinary surgeon John Boyd Dunlop which was developed to inflate the prototype pneumatic tyre he had invented for his bicycle.

In 1907, the company was one of the earliest to incorporate as a Limited Liability Company and became and continues to be at the forefront of fluid transfer technology.
