Jonesco - established in 1967 - a family run manufacturing company with decades of experience provides fenders in medium and high density polyethylene. With over 9 Million fenders sold we supply the largest range of sizes from one manufacturer to the original equipment / aftermarket commercial and leisure vehicle markets. Our major share of the UK market is complimented by international sales to more than 50 countries. Export sales now account for more than half of all sales. Jonesco (Preston) Ltd. also owns a French subsidiary. Jonesco products are manufactured by the process of rotational moulding and extrusion.
Our 165 staff working over 3 shifts and 5.5 days a week ensures good supply. The fire & safety and the environmental & spill containment markets are also a core speciality with significant investment in pioneering design, tools and machinery resulting in superior products at affordable prices. Jonesco is a market leader in these markets.
The company has a worldwide reputation for consistent high quality, durability, rapid service, loyal distribution network and is ISO9001:2008 and ISO14001 approved. New and custom moulded products are added to the range continually by our in-house design team and mould makers. We are constantly evolving to meet the specialised demands of our ever-growing number of customers with an emphasis on design and value for money.
In the mid-1970s the company began to manufacture poly fenders to complement those made from steel. Whilst continuing to manufacture fenders from steel, the poly fender has rapidly gained prominence in most markets and the production of the former was finally discontinued in August 2014.
The Company has grown continually and in December 1989 moved to a purpose-built 4-acre (16.200m2) site with space for further development and production. In 1998 an extension to the building allowed for several new machines to provide large capacity production of tool boxes and fire boxes. Jonesco plastic products are leading brand names with a high reputation and market share. They are widely fitted as original equipment and first installation. High quality, durability, competitiveness, service, high supply performance and support of a loyal distribution chain have gained this position.
In 2005 Jonesco began to explore a third new market. New Environmental Protection regulations in the UK meant it was an ideal time to enter the industry. Research and Development then began on products such as Spill Pallets, Workfloors, Drum Trolleys, IBC Bunds and many more. As the demand for such products became greater, more room was needed, and in the winter of 2006 the Company added another extension allowing extra machinery, assembly and storage for these large sized products.
Our growth in sales, markets and product ranges continued and in Spring 2013 we added a purpose built 2500 pallet space distribution warehouse built on a 3.7 acres (15.000m2) site close to our factory giving vital room for production optimisation and greater stocks to supply a market where rapid availability is essential.
