J.M. Wood Ltd. was incorporated in 1959 as a transport business by John Wood, a farmer based at Felsted in Essex. Due to ill health he sold the company in 1973 to another Felsted-based company, T.A. Woods (Steel Radiators) Ltd. In 1976 T.A. Woods (Steel Radiators) Ltd. was sold to its main supplier the Carron Company, but Trevor Woods and his family retained ownership of J.M. Wood Ltd. which at this time held distribution contracts with the British Sugar Corporation’s Felsted factory, and the Felsted-based Essex Brewer, T.D. Ridley & Sons Ltd.
The Memorandum and Articles of J.M. Wood Ltd. were changed to permit it to work as a sales agency in the heating industry. In 1980, Trevor Woods also set up and ran the UK division of the privately owned Belgian radiator producer Radson n.v. With the sale in 1986 of Radson n.v. to another owner, Trevor left the company to concentrate on building the sales agency business of J.M. Wood Ltd.
Following the closure of the British Sugar Corporation’s Felsted factory, and the sale of T.D. Ridley & Sons Ltd. to Greene King, J.M. Wood Ltd. became solely a sales agency and product sourcing consultancy within the heating industry.
Following the death in 2011 of Trevor's wife Mary, his daughter, Caroline Pheffer, was appointed a Director of the company in her place. However, Caroline lives and works in the USA and for some time Trevor has been looking for a younger person to join and ultimately take over the business.
Trevor Woods, Chairman and CEO of J.M. Wood Ltd., has been associated with the radiator industry for nearly 50 years, and his company J.M. Wood Ltd. is proud to work as a Sales Agency for the quality products manufactured by the companies on this website.
With effect from the 1st May 2018 Paul Heighton joined JM Wood Ltd as a Director and Partner, and will progressively take over the running of the business. Paul also lives, and is resident, in the small Tuscan town of Monterchi where Trevor has been resident for 20 years.
