Welcome to our new website!In 1976, Jimmie Jenkins started Jenkins Imports, Inc. in Thiensville, WI. by purchasing an existing dealership owned by P.J. Kaufman Motor Cars. Back then, the dealership had Volvo, Jaguar, Triumph, Rover, Fiat and Toyota. After 4 years of being in business, Mr. Jenkins decided to move the dealership to our current location on Green Bay Ave. We were able to bring Volvo, Jaguar and Triumph to our new location. In 1982, Triumph went out of business but we added the Lotus franchise. We eventually parted ways with Lotus to expand our Jaguar brand.
Over the last 30+ years, our location has served us and our customer's extremely well with easy access from I43. We've built our business over the years by taking care of our customer's. Our basic principles of treating our customer's with respect and honesty is a hallmark of Jenkins. Being family owned and operated, these core values will always remain. We're proud of our long history in Milwaukee and surrounding areas.
On October 22, 2009, Jimmie Jenkins passed away. He is truly missed by our dealership family and our many customers he touched over the years. He is survived by his wife Mary and five children. They were married for more than 60 years.
Today, the next generation of family runs the dealership. Greg Jenkins is President and Principal of the dealership. Greg has been with the dealership since 1981. He is the second son of Jimmie Jenkins.
Brother Tom Jenkins, serves as Exec. V.P. and Business Manager and has been with the dealership since 1983. He is the baby of the family.
Tom Langer, Jimmie's son-in-law is married to Gail (Jenkins) Langer. Tom is an
Exec. V.P. and has been with the dealership since the beginning in 1976. Daughter Gail works in the office and is the Adminstrative Secretary.
As you can see, we are truly a family owned and operated business. To our many customer's over the years..."THANK YOU!" To our future customer's..."WE CAN'T WAIT!" This is our story.
