Our Local History
It seems like just yesterday we were working from our humble beginnings in a small warehouse and yard just 2500 feet away from our current location. With the dream of owning a small local business, we opened our doors in January of 1996 with one simple goal – to be the best. We felt that if we were authentic and focused on greatness, everything else would fall in place. So, on a snowy day in the winter of '96, four guys, Bob, Dave, Bill and John, laid out the plan, signed the lease and The Fence Authority was born.
By 1998, we had out grown our startup yard and we needed more space and as luck would have it, a ten-acre parcel came for sale just a half mile away. With a little help from the owner of the lot, we bought it. Before we knew it, plans were drawn and approvals were achieved. By the end of July of 2001 we had moved into our current digs.
Since then, we have continued to grow and expand our team and facilities. Today we have over 40 hardworking folks in our West Chester location alone, and our company-wide team of fence experts is nearly 100 members strong. We're proud to help our customers in the Chester, Delaware, Montgomery, Berks, Lancaster, and New Castle Counties make their backyard feel like a slice of paradise.
