Winston and Andrea Neil started Jamaica Plumbing Supplies in 1988. It grew from a three-man staff to a complement of 27 today. The company is now led by Winston, managing director; Andrea, administrative manager; and Brenton, who manages the business operations. Company records show that the husband and wife team have a 60-40 split in the company. Jamaica Plumbing offers a range of plumbing fixtures and fittings that runs the gamut from pipe washers to whirlpool tubs, and caters to individual household customers as well as contractors on small-to large-scale projects. The company has two branches. Brenton says the original Molynes Road facility has had a companion store since November 2016. "We recently opened a branch in Sovereign Village Plaza in the Portmore Pines area. There's still a lot of room for growth - the plaza is still new and Portmore is still a growing community," Brenton said.
