A history of firsts

James Jones & Sons has a proud history dating back over 180 years. In that time, we have been at the forefront of timber innovation. We introduced the first J Nail, the first Mini Bundling system, the first Incised line, the first state of the art x-ray scanning technology... We are constantly innovating and leading the timber industry by example.

James Jones & Sons introduced the JJI-Joist, pioneered the use of polyurethane adhesives and was the driving force behind the development of automated I-Joist production lines.

Ever since James Jones & Sons Ltd was incorporated, we’ve remained firmly at the forefront of our industry.


Our mission has always been to be at the forefront of research and innovation and we are very proud to have pioneered a number of innovative, ground breaking products.
