Established in 1959 by Archibald and Rita Maxwell, J A Maxwell & Son started out as one man on his own cleaning windows, with a vision to build an established family business for his 3 sons, Ian, Alan and Graham. Soon after starting the business, Archie took on some maintenance and construction work, which was more to his strengths and skills picked up whilst serving in the Royal Marines, and soon established himself with a regular client base in the construction industry only.

Whilst eldest son Ian and middle son Alan, have both worked for the company at various points and gone onto their own ventures, it was youngest son Graham who joined the company when leaving school, and has taken on the business from strength to strength.

Archie and Graham worked together across all aspects of the building trade, and set out to establish the company as a got to domestic building company for any building needs. From small maintenance jobs, to extensions and conversions, no job was too big or too small and their established client base and returning customers is a testament to their work.

Graham, with over 45 years experience in the construction industry, has continued to grow the business, with the vast majority of work coming from repeat customers and through word of mouth. This has now lead to the company as it exists today, with Graham’s wife Janet, and their children Ross and Victoria also involved in the business.
