Company History

Company History

The Company was founded by Peter Jenkins in November 1980 and was sited at relatively small premises in Finchley, North London. Peter’s trusted team was his wife Elizabeth, whose maiden name O’Connor forms part of the company’s name, and his father Bill, who tackled various office duties. They had an all hands to the pump type approach that is still present within the current staff team today.  Rapid growth in the early 80’s enabled the Company to invest in new premises in Enfield, affording much larger storage and milling facilities for the ever growing workforce. This new facility enabled the company to increase both the levels and the diversity of stock and in 1995 the Company added a new and strategically placed depot in Ruislip, West London. From a single van in 1980 Jennor Timber now have a fleet of ten vehicles and over 30 staff members, many of whom have been with the Company for many years. The business is still very much a family affair with Peter’s four sons involved in every capacity of the business. After an invaluable time working and learning every aspect of the business, Philip Jenkins took over as Managing Director in 2007. It is under his directorship and with the support of a hugely experienced and dedicated staff team that Jennor Timber continues to grow and develop whilst keeping customer service at it’s heart.
