Our Story

Starting as a sign company and developing to manufacturing number plates, Jepson & Co Ltd has seen it all over the years!

Established in 1894

Our home has always been the fine city of Sheffield, South Yorkshire. Over the years we have moved from Hunter House Road, to Button Lane (now Fargate), to Wellington Street and now we're at purpose-built premises at 44 East Bank Road where Jepson & Co Ltd resides as one of the world's oldest number plate suppliers.

Family company 

We remain a family company to this day, with the fourth-generation, Peter Jepson, currently at the helm of the business. Our head office in South Yorkshire is extremely family orientated, full of happy, lively and interesting characters! After all, it is our second home! 

Did you know that our longest serving member of staff has been with us for over 40 years? Sorry to embarrass you, Angela!

 

Our extended family

Although Jepson & Co Ltd is based in Sheffield, one of our sister companies, National Numbers, is in Billingham. National Numbers is the UK's market leader for private number plates and has been since 1981.

Also part of the Jepson family, we have vintage and classic number plate specialists, Framptons, who moved from Waterlooville up to our Sheffield office. Not forgetting our latest addition to the family, the 1894 Sign Co., signs that are inspired by traditional methods of making aluminium number plates but with a splash of colour!

We pride ourselves on long standing relationships with all of our customers, providing them with the best quality, service and value within the industry. Our oldest customer has been with us for over 50 years!
