Our Story

We’re a Chesapeake, family owned business that has been meeting the metal needs of the Southeastern Virginia & Northeastern North Carolina region and beyond, for over 60 years. We pride ourselves in friendly customer service that treats each customer, whether you need 2′ or 200′, with the same care.

We started as the retail portion of Jacobson Metal Company and were spun off 15 years ago as JR Enterprises, LLC, the independent metal distributor that we are today. After over 50 years in the same location in Money Point in Chesapeake , we moved to Alexander Lane for 2 years and have now opened our new yard at 240 Progress Drive, Chesapeake, Va 23322.

All of this was done in an effort to take better care of our growing clientele, which ranges from the individual homeowner to contractors, farmers, waterman, machine shops, manufacturers, fabricators, building supplies & general business.
