Maple Bay.Berry and his wife Jenny bought into the company in 2001 after one of the founders stepped aside. The partners ran the company together
until John’s recent retirement. As of August 2019, Berry and Jenny each own 50 per cent of the company.
Since taking over, Berry has been careful to maintain the attention to detail and quality of workmanship that has been the foundation for JBL’s sterling reputation.
