ESTABLISHMENT: SERVING CENTRAL FLORIDA SINCE 1959
In 1959 James B. Williams, “Jim”, with his wife Lavonne established Williams Fence Co. As with most new ventures, things started very small. Jim would make sales calls one day and install fences the next. Lavonne answered the phone and kept the books. Over the years, Jim’s company grew and flourished due to his commitment to quality work and outstanding customer services. Jim continued his efforts until he passed away in July of 1997. Lavonne served the company until her retirement in 2002.
JIM JR. YEARS
“Jim Jr.” worked in the family business from a young age. His first job was to put bolts into hinges and put them into bins in the warehouse; it paid a penny a bolt. Throughout his junior high school years, Jim worked in the gate shop assembling gates. His high school years found him in the field with installation crews. Jim graduated from the University of Florida in May of 1988. The very next week he started full time at Williams Fence company.
The company has been under Jim’s direction for the past 30 years. The company continued to experience growth and progress due to Jim’s commitment to the same quality work and outstanding customer service his father emphasized.
Jim’s son Andrew is now an integral part of the team at Williams Fence Company. Very similar to Jim’s story, Andrew worked in the fabrication shop and with installation crews during summers and after school. Today he is working hand in hand with Jim as he gains knowledge and experience in the fencing industry.
Going forward, Williams Fence company is committed to those same values that has hallmarked the company for more than 60 years. Andrew is now poised to continue to provide Central Florida with quality fencing solutions for both residential and commercial platforms.
