A reputation built on experience, quality and reliability.

J&R is a Birmingham-based, family run business, with over 35 years of experience in the development and sales of driveshafts and automotive parts.

We are an independent specialist in driveshafts, CV joints and associated car parts. Every piece in the J&R brand has been personally selected and manufactured to our specifications from our own catalogue.


Looking for something older or more unique? We love a classic, and stock driveshafts for everything from the earliest Mini and Golf MK 1 to the newest EV model. We are the largest kit car and specialist parts supplier in the UK. If you have something a little harder to find, we’ll do our best to help you.


What does that mean for you?


Quality & design performance

– J&R produce our own brand in personally selected and vetted factories to our specifications. We regularly review and assess our designs to comply with the latest ISO standards.  We use the best materials for long-lasting performance, such as choosing solid steel over steel tubing, and our trusted supplier base is built on lasting relationships and regular vetting for consistent, uncompromised quality. We’re so proud of our parts, we offer a 2-year unlimited mileage warranty!


Open and transparent pricing.

 – We are not involved with buyer groups. This means that we do not try to reduce production costs by using inferior materials or offering bonuses for mass purchases. We offer one price, whether you are purchasing as an individual or a garage, so you can be assured of getting the right value for your money.


Online and open for business  

- We are an independent online company only, selling our products through various outlets including our website and eBay. You can only buy the J&R brand directly from us. But when you really need to speak to a human, that’s fine too. Our sales team are based right here in our Birmingham depot, ready to help.


Aftermarket – not off the market

– Our products are brand new, quality replacement parts, designed to fit your vehicle – just like having replacement tyres that carry a different brand to the factory-fitted originals. In fact, J&R are a recognised supplier to main dealers and independent garages.


Our history is the story of the automobile for almost 60 years.


The history of J&R really begins far back in the 1970s, in the time of the Ford Cortina, Morris Marina and, of course, the classic Mini, when a former GKN engineer, Stan Jones, launched his own business from a small Birmingham yard. Later known as Midland Automotive Products, this growing business specialised in the remanufacture and repair of automotive parts, and it was here that Lee Jones first began his hands-on apprenticeship, learning automotive engineering from his father.


In partnership with his brother, Lee started their remanufacture business in 1995. Named Shaftec, the successful company was later sold on and continues today outside of the family hands.


In 2006 Lee founded a new family business – J&R - building his own brand. Now a registered trademark, J&R has a catalogue of new automotive parts based on the true standards of engineering –


Designed to last.

Tested for performance.

Manufactured for quality.


With over 35 years of experience, Lee personally handles research and development, focusing on the design quality of new parts for the rapidly expanding automobile industry, including the introduction of electric car components. He is joined by co-owner and wife, Sharon, and daughter, Amylea, who head up sales and customer development.


Today, J&R is one of the UK's largest and most reputable online specialists in driveshafts and CV joints. We are proud that it remains a family business, based on a true love for the automobile industry that began with Lee’s father, almost 60 years ago.


Our commitment to growth & sustainability


Since 2006 J&R has grown our team to a small but highly efficient crew, managing everything from design to sales in-house. In 2022 we invested in a move to a new 40,000-square-foot depot based by Birmingham airport, giving us the expansion needed to cater to new EV models.


J&R is an equal opportunity employer, and practices sustainability throughout our new depot wherever possible, including sensors on lights in our warehouse, recycling, and using recycled packaging with our products.


We have recently invested in all-electric equipment for our trucks, and we work with DPD, who has won awards for their commitment to sustainability programmes.


We offer a 2-year unlimited mileage, no quibble warranty!
