HISTORY
John Jenkins started his business in 1958. The main arm of the business was in all aspects of maintenance and repairs for Local Authorities, Housing Associations and new work within the domestic and house building market.
In 1976 John invited his son, Hugh, to join the business as a partner, thus forming the company John Jenkins & Son. From this point on Hugh expanded the business venturing into aspects such as structural steel. Coupled with catering for existing customers he branched out and succeeded in adding new clients and work to the company portfolio. Currently, we manufacture and supply steel products throughout central Scotland and beyond.
With the assistance of Gillian, his wife, loyal and dedicated staff, we have been successful in holding onto all of our clients and completing contracts from large to small, all to the satisfaction of our clients.
In 2008, due to the volume of work, we moved into specially built modern premises to help us cater for the increasing demands for our products and to help face the new challenges ahead.
In 2010, Hugh’s son Jonny, a qualified surveyor, joined the company and further enhanced the family commitment to going forward in the market. Jonny took over as Managing Director in 2015.
