JEF Air Hire, are proud suppliers of one of the widest ranges of construction and DIY equipment for hire and sale in Port Elizabeth and the Eastern Cape.

J.E.F. Air, founded by Godfrey van Graan more than 40 years ago, has handed over the reigns to his two daughters who both started with the company more than 28 year ago. 

We specialise in the hire, servicing and sales of compressed air and all ancillary equipment, such as paving breakers and rock drills, couplings, clamps and all auxiliary equipment for the compressed air industry, as well as TLBs, skidsteer loaders, pedestrian and ride-on rollers and hydraulic hammers. The company is also a dealer for Gardner Denver, Compair, Doosan & Atlas Copco compressors and Yamaha Power Products. All our compressed air suppliers are world-class manufacturers of electric screw compressors, including the revolutionary VS series, which utilise variable speed motors to elicit considerable savings in electricity consumption for industry – as much as 25% per annum.

J.E.F. Air also offers Yamaha generators, waterpumps and pokers. J.E.F. Air Hire is proud suppliers of one of the widest ranges of construction and D.I.Y. equipment for hire and sale in Port Elizabeth and the Eastern Cape.

We offer a 24-hour service and we are always willing to please.

Our motto: “No job is too big or too small; we shall make it happen.”
