Jackie Clark began doing side jobs part time as a hobby in his garage in Ewell, Alabama. In 1990, he started his business, J&N Machine Shop, LLC. As business picked up in 1991, Jackie moved J&N Machine to Leona St. in Dothan, Alabama. After retiring from his full time job of 9 years at Ansell Machine Shop, Jackie expanded J&N Machine to a full service machine shop and in 1993, relocated to Blackshear St. Over the next 11 years, the business took off and Jackie brought in his wife, Nolee and 2 children full time to assist in the office and shop. J&N Machine Shop had overgrown its location and moved to Bic Rd. in 2004. Over the following 8 years, Jackie has added an additional location to serve customers and, in 2012, moved primary operations to the current location of 171 N. Range St. Dothan, Alabama 36303.
