How we got to where we are today! A brief history of JPF
How did we get from the small family run start up business to the leading company we are today?
The JPF Group was founded in 1997 by Mike Parker and Nick Judge.
In 2002, having successfully completed 7 years in the industry, JPF identified another specialist niche in the market place. We were called upon to provide more and more automated doors for their projects which meant they had to depend on the performance of what was available in the market place at the time, which invariably was one of the large multinational automatic door companies.
These companies were finding it difficult to handle the increase in volume that came with boom of the early 2000’s (mainly due to the imposition of the Disability Discrimination Act (relating to access) which made it compulsory for all commercial buildings to provide ease of access for wheelchair users), so JPF made the decision to create our own automatic door company and ADC was conceived.
Following the death of JPF Director Nick Judge in 2007, the Parker family took sole ownership and running of the company with Group Chairman, Mike Parker firmly at the helm. In 2016 following his semi-retirement, Mike placed the overall running of the company to a highly trained and qualified management team headed up by his son Richard.
Here at ADC we are continually striving to improve the way we operate. We have a great team of employees, from the fabricators through to installation, administration and management, we ensure that every employee is appropriately trained and they are fully committed to the ADC work ethic. We are where we are today due to our own endeavours and tenacity.
