The JFK Group Pty Ltd was founded in the late 1990s by a young Justin Kern, whose background was in industrial design and cabinet making.
While manufacturing custom joinery by day, Justin would moonlight as a technician-for-hire, installing PCs and speaker boxes for his friends and family. It was only when his recreational skills were spotted by Sony that his venture into the world of technology began. And despite having no previous vocational experience in Information Technology, he was hired on-the-spot as Sony’s IT Manager and proceeded to teach himself networking.
Installing AV systems was second nature to Justin and eventually, as demand grew for more sophisticated audio and visual distribution around the home, Justin decided to branch off from Sony and set up his own installation company. And so, JFK Audio Visual was born.
Over the coming years, Justin would join forces with Matt Furnell and this dynamic duo would quickly grow a reputation across Australia for innovation and excellence.
Fast forward to 2013 and JFK takes an exciting new direction, rebranding to JFK Automation to reflect the company’s focus on Smart Home technology and bringing on board Mark Nettleton to manage the business’ transition. With that came a brand new focus on design and consultancy and a desire to be the #1 choice for home automation installation in Sydney.
Today, the business has grown to accommodate projects of any size and level of complexity. With dedicated project managers, designers and technicians on staff, JFK Automation now stands amongst the elite few home automation specialists in Australia that continually demonstrate outstanding work and superior levels of professionalism.
JFK are based in Neutral Bay, Sydney and service clients throughout Australia. We welcome all new enquiries from home and business owners, architects and building professionals.
