Founded in 1970, JR Industries is Europe’s principal manufacturer of vehicle roller shutter doors. Our company’s headquarters are in Caerphilly, Wales, and we also have manufacturing facilities in both France and Germany, as well as a European agency network.



JR Industries was set up by Jack Robinson and at launch we had just five employees. Now we employee 91 people in our head office, and 18 in our European manufacturing facilities.


Directors Robin Howard and Len Smith head up our team. Robin is a Chartered Accountant with a degree in Communications and Electronic Engineering. He worked for Deloittes, Newbridge Networks, and Hawker Siddeley Switchgear before joining JR Industries as a director in 2000. He runs the back-office operations of the business.

Len meanwhile heads up the customer facing side of the business, focussing on engineering, customer support and service provisions. His career started with a degree in Production Engineering. He worked for the Ford Motor Company, Aeroquip Global Hose Division and as a self-employed furniture designer and maker before joining JR Industries in 2001.

The company’s success can be attributed to the hard work of a great team, and our ability to produce top quality, bespoke products for our customers. You tell us what you need; we will adapt our products to your requirements. 

Our experienced team are continually looking for ways to improve and fine-tune our products. From standard wide slat doors for dry freight to specialist doors for firefighting vehicles, our focus is on innovation in shutter door design.

We don’t believe our job comes to an end once a door leaves our factories either. We have set up a comprehensive network of service agents and distributors to ensure you can get support where and when you need it.

We currently manufacture 20 different kinds of shutter doors and 3000 different parts.
