About Us

Way back in 1949 the founder of the company, the late Mr Julius Lobenstein, who arrived in this country ten years earlier as a refugee from Nazi oppression - started a business that he knew nothing about.  As he often joked: "I didn't know the difference between a switch socket and a coil of fuse wire”, but he learnt fast.

He chose the electrical trade because he had a hunch that after the ravages of the World War there was bound to be an enormous increase in house building of which wiring is an essential component.  Together with his son Joe, who was then in his early 20's, they started a small electrical wholesale business located in the backroom of their residence in North London.

In the early post-war years to possess ones own delivery van was a luxury they could not afford.  They travelled through the length and breadth of London by public transport.  They were glad when a contractor ordered a few rolls of cable which they wrapped in a parcel and hand-delivered on the following day.    Jaylow grew gradually and it soon became clear that the company had outgrown its tiny operating base.  They managed to purchase an adjoining residential property which became its home for many years.

Outwardly not very glorious, but growth was impressive.  From its very inception Jaylow's motto was:”The best quality goods at the best possible service to the customer and at the most competitive prices”.

In 1973 the founder of the company passed away leaving his son Joe - assisted by a small team of staff - to "carry the can".  Jaylow was always meant to be a family business; so when his son Morris completed his studies he joined the company and after a few years of apprenticeship was appointed Director - a position he fills with great efficiency.
