James Smith Fencing was originally founded by the late James Smith in 1950, who carried out fencing and general agricultural construction work. The company successfully traded this way for about 30 years employing only five or six people.
The company is now owned by Ian Smith, son of the late James Smith, and his wife Lee. Ian first joined his father in business in 1978 where he worked for 12 years as a fencer before gradually expanding the company into one of the largest fencing suppliers in the country.
Ian believes that the success of James Smith Fencing today is partly due to the time he spent as a fencer. A broad knowledge of both the industry and materials when dealing with customers is invaluable and allows enquiries to be dealt with on a much more personal level.
JSF currently employs 20 people of which many are now part of the woodwork with the longest serving employee clocking up over 40 years! Ian and Lee are delighted that their now grown up children James, Anna and Lucy have joined the family business. James is often spotted behind the wheel of their famous red lorries delivering customer orders the length of the country, while Anna and Lucy are office based dealing with customer enquiries and assisting Lee with the accounts.
James Smith Fencing pride themselves on continuously offering an efficient no-nonsense service whether dealing with a major agricultural contract or a member of the public simply looking to build a garden fence. They strive to provide a personal service which ensures each and every customer and order regardless of size is treated with the same level of importance and efficiency as the next and of course the last.
