About JSC

JSC's Enduring Commitment to Quality Craftsmanship and Innovation

JSC has a proud and long-standing story within the landscape of New Zealand business and manufacturing. 

Established in Dunedin in 1900 by Jack Scott, and named J Scott and Company, our pioneering business grew and diversified in line with customer demand, tastes, and trends over the years – from wood carving and signage to mouldings and framings, to furniture and interior finishings. As the offering evolved and the business grew, importing new wood species and varieties, the JSC brand never wavered on their commitment to hard work, reliability, and quality craftsmanship. 

This reputation for excellence that was established over one hundred years ago endures to this day, as does the ability to adapt and evolve, to better serve the needs of customers and to solve the challenges facing the building industry and the environment.
