Refreshing innovation for drinks dispense

It’s time to raise a glass to John Guest

Next time you raise your glass, consider toasting our very own John Guest. After all, it was John Guest that invented the world’s first food grade push-fit fitting almost forty years ago.

On discovering that lead in compression fittings reacted with beer to cause serious health concerns, it was John Guest the industry turned to for a solution. The plastic push-fit connector for drinks dispense was born offering a safer and more convenient alternative.

Since then we have continued to develop a wide range of innovative fittings, valves and tubing for drink dispense, as well integral components for other fluid OEM applications.

Millions of our push-fit connectors are made each year and trusted worldwide for beverage drinks dispense, coffee makers, vending machines, water coolers, and countless other fluid applications.
