Contracting Works

Contracting worksContracting works

Here at JSF we are proud of our roots - contracting is where we started and is still an important part of our business.  We still work with families that our founder, Jimmy Smith carried out works for over 70 years ago.

The contracting side is run by our senior director Ian Smith who initially worked with his late father as a former fencer, moving on to sales and expanding JSF gradually to the company that it is today.

Ian now has 44 years of experience and really enjoys being at the helm of the contracting side, from organising staff through to preparing quotes. There are around 12 fencers who are employed at JSF, with a few more regular contractors who are also there to lend a hand.  On average there are 15 people working in the fencing division throughout the year.

When it comes to site visits and organisation, Ian is now assisted by David Parker, a previous fencer who has been with JSF for many years. After 44 years there’s nothing the boss hasn’t encountered and been able to sort out. We think he knows the job inside out!!

At JSF we have very loyal staff, one fencer has been with us for 50 years and a few others for over 30 years! They know what they are doing.

JSF can supply and erect a large variety of fencing, from picket garden fences, to stock fencing or cattle pens, right through to industrial security fencing. No job is too big or small for us.

We can also advise on different types of fencing even if it is not something we normally build or stock.  We're always open to new challenges.

If you would like to enquire about a new fence quote please contact our office today on 01557 330 616, or email our sales team at [email protected]

Please note that our contract work is only carried out throughout Dumfries and Galloway.
