Chairman and Founder
Jim Blythe, Chairman and Founder back in 1973. Jim turns 75 years young this year and still has the same energy and enthusiasm as the day he started the business! You will often see Jim “on the road” delivering or collecting one of our latest purchases. He’s also a keen Scooterist so he’s our “go to man” for nipping out to get more milk and tea bags. He is THE most popular member of the team
Tim Blythe, Managing Director and Jim’s Son (2nd of 3 boys). Tim started as an apprentice plant mechanic back in 1991 when Jay Bee Plant Sales was formed. 28 years later Tim is now very much in the driving seat and has been largely responsible for the growth of the business particularly over the last few years. Tim enjoys running in his spare time both cross country and the line for his Sons football team.
Nicky Blythe MAAT
Nicky Blythe is our Financial controller and wife to Tim. Nicky has been involved with the company since 2002 and now works full time making sure our accounts are up to date, suppliers get paid and just as importantly our staff get paid. She is our most important team member, particularly at the end of each month. In her spare time Nicky enjoys horse riding and being Mum to 10 year old Henry.

Leigh has been with us for over 9 years and has grown her roles to include credit control, UK & export machine sales, hires and repair managing and a whole host of other duties to boot! Leigh continues to be a great asset to the Jay Bee Plant team. She enjoys wine in her spare time.
Kris is our chief engineer and another long serving member of the team. Kris is another family member being brother to Nicky. Kris has many years of experience working in and around plant machinery which is vital at times particularly when loading plant into containers & lorry’s. Kris is a keen fisherman and dedicated father of 2 boys.
Jason is another vastly experienced plant man having spent all his working life in construction and machine operating. Jason is a perfectionist when it comes to preparing machines for sale which is why our stock looks so good! Jason enjoys golfing and watching his local football team in his spare time.
We also work closely with a select few engineers who specialise in repairs and servicing of plant, agricultural and grass/ground care equipment. These guys are very much part of team Jay Bee and we are appreciative of their dedicated service to us.
