Jenkins Essex History
Since 1904, when Neff Jenkins and William Essex purchased a lumber mill, Jenkins-Essex has been serving Central Kentucky with quality, expertise and dedication. Our longevity is testament to our capabilities. We believe that our success has come through honesty, integrity, knowledge and hard work. Our objective is to build a superior product at a fair price.
Not only is our experience lengthy, it is diverse. With over 200 years of combined experience on our professional team, there is virtually no situation or scenario that we have not previously encountered. We pursue opportunities in Design/Build, Construction Management and traditional General Contracting. We have built almost every type of structure imaginable with vast experience in industrial, institutional and commercial projects.
We have an extensive roster of past customers, subcontractors and suppliers who can speak to our qualifications. Now in our fourth generation of family ownership and management, we have successfully completed over 35 million square feet of projects. We have been fortunate enough to build some of the most recognized buildings in this community including Hardin County Justice Center, Elizabethtown Police Station, Bluegrass Cellular Headquarters, and Akebono Brake North America Headquarters.
