Our history...

In 1959, James “Jim” W. Boylan founded Jim's Supply Company, Inc. (JSC). Boylan was a salesman for a steel company in Fresno and foresaw Bakersfield to be a growing city that had potential to support another steel company. Boylan and his wife, Doreen, truly believed in hard work.  The couple started the company from their home where Jim purchased, sold, and delivered the steel, while Doreen answered phones and helped with clerical tasks, while also caring for their five children.

Just two years later, they were able to move the company to its first location on East 19th Street. Then, in 1963, the Boylans relocated to a larger facility on Brown Street. JSC was there for just six years before moving to its current location on Pierce Road (now Buck Owens Blvd.) where it has grown and expanded over the past forty years.

JSC provides a quality full service steel and pipe center, as well as the design, manufacturing, and distribution of a complete line of innovative trellising products. They work to attain a high level of customer and employee satisfaction while achieving profitable expansion. They also strive with a knowledgeable and safe employee team to continue the legacy of their motto “Hard Work and A Dream.” In 1980, the company developed their Vineyard Division which designs and manufactures metal trellising products for vineyards and orchards. Just nine years later, they opened a branch in the Napa Valley town of Calistoga.

Over four decades, 22 family members have been involved in the business. They include Jim's siblings, brother-in-laws, nephews, children, and grandchildren. Jim and Doreen’s children, from their youth, have been actively involved in the company. For the past 25 years, Greg, Jennice, Jennifer, and Bryan, along with Dan Drake (son-in-law), have lead the company together. Their team leadership approach has proved successful throughout the years, and they truly feel blessed to enjoy each other’s company both in and outside of business. The couple's son, Kevin W. Boylan, was also a part of the management team until he tragically passed away after a car accident in 1999, just five years after Jim passed away.

JSC's connection to the community is very apparent. On a weekly basis, JSC prepares and supplies bags of non-perishable food items to be distributed by St. Vincent de Paul to the homeless. The company has also been a longtime supporter of the Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and supports a variety of other local charities, shelters, and schools.

The Boylans are proud of the hard work and dedication of JSC employees that have contributed to the success of the oldest steel service center in the area and the continued growth of the company. They greatly appreciate and value their management team and wonderful employees, many of which have been with JSC for over 20 years. 

JSC started with one rented truck and a staff that consisted of only Jim and Doreen. Today, they have their own fleet of trucks and a staff of approximately 100.  They take pride in continually improving their level of performance in order to have very satisfied customers for years to come.
