We believe a fence company can be fresh and innovative.
We believe our reputation is far more valuable than any profit that we stand to make. We're humans, and we're not always going to be right. If it costs us everything, we will make it right.
We believe for business to be good, you have to hire and retain good people. We know that people with good character are typically hard workers, teachable, and respectable. Therefore, we don't hire fence builders - we hire good people and make them good fence people.
We believe the finished product has to be the best, so we focus on innovation and craftsmanship. Our in-house mindset is this - "if there is a better way to do it, find it."
We believe doing business should be easy, so we simplify the process by leveraging systems and technologies. We pride ourselves on being responsive and easy to interact with.
"Hard work beats talent when talent does not work hard"
In 2016, there were simply not enough good fence contractors to service the market in West Tennessee. We believed we could fill the gaps, so we formed Jackson Fence Company - of Medina, Tennessee. With $600, a 17-year old truck, and borrowed tools, we got to work.
Hole after hole, blister after blister, we worked our tails off learning the trade. We certainly weren't the best, but we worked hard. Looking back, I believe all of our fences were quality - even the early ones - we were just very inefficient. But here we are, 4 years later, and about 1,200 fences under our belts. Somewhere along the way, we've gotten pretty good and pretty efficient at what we do.
I guess we're like any business. It's hard. It's hard now, but it's hard in a different way than it was in 2016. We're still learning, and fortunately it seems we're still growing. Today, it takes my wife, seven guys, and myself to keep up with the demand that West Tennessee has afford us. Somedays it seems we're only barely keeping up.
Still, it's been fun. We've met a lot of really good people, and we've seen West Tennessee more times in the last four years than I ever imagined. Hopefully, if you're reading this, you will choose to become a part of our story as well.
