J-M Manufacturing Donates Pipe For New Water System In Residential Home For Troubled Teens
The Freedom Village Campus Prepares To Replace Deteriorated Metal Pipes With JMM's PVC Water Pipes
Livingston, NJ – August 28, 2006 – J-M Manufacturing Company, the largest producer of plastic pipe in the world, has generously donated PVC water pipes to Freedom Village, a residential home for troubled teenagers located in Western New York State. According to Dick Rosenberg, Procurement Director for Freedom Village, it was necessary for the private, faith based home to completely replace their water system, “Our current system consists of old, metal pipes, which have deteriorated significantly over the years. We made the decision to transition to PVC pipes based on a recommendation from our Project Engineer.”
Steve Goodwyn, Water Works Sales Manager for JMM, was pleased that Freedom Village made the decision to switch to PVC piping for their new water system, “As the industry leader in plastic pipe, we do our best to educate engineers and contractors about the benefits of our products. It is always encouraging to learn that our PVC pipes are preferred over other competitive materials, such as cast iron or other metal pipes. We were happy to be in a position to support this worthy endeavor.”
Freedom Village, at any given time, houses 150 to 200 young people, ages 14-21, who need and want help with various aspects of their lives. The 150-acre campus is complete with a school, a full sports and music program, and agricultural facilities, which include horses. JMM's donation of 3,800 feet of 6 DR 18 and 1,500 feet of 4 DR 18 water pipes will carry safe drinking water in this community for years to come.
