J-M Manufacturing Comes To The Aid Of Hurricane Katrina Victims
JMM Plants in Louisiana and Texas Seek Out Local Organizations To Coordinate Relief Efforts
Livingston, NJ – November 15, 2005 – In response to Hurricane Katrina, J-M Manufacturing Company, Inc. (JMM), the largest producer of plastic pipe in the world, has designated its plants in Batchelor, LA and Wharton, TX to facilitate relief efforts by working together with local organizations. This approach enabled them to identify and partner with several charities, providing much needed supplies to anywhere from 50 to 700 victims daily. Generous donations were made to St. Mary’s Missionary Baptist Church and the Village of Morganza in the Batchelor, LA area and to the Matagorda County Chapter of the American Red Cross and SHARE Center of the Wharton, TX area.
Additionally, JMM initiated a company-wide collection for Hurricane Katrina victims, offering a 5 to 1 matching policy from the company on each contribution. To date, more than $110,000 has been raised to support the relief efforts. These are just the first steps taken by J-M Manufacturing to aid in the hurricane relief efforts. Further action will follow as other ways to assist victims and devastated areas are identified. JMM’s ambassador plants are still considering organizations and charities that are in need of assistance.
J-M Manufacturing Company, Inc. was formed in 1982 with the acquisition of eight pipe manufacturing facilities. Today, the company operates 14 manufacturing plants across the United States, with headquarters in Livingston, New Jersey. JMM produces water, sewer, solvent weld, electrical conduit, ABS and polyethylene pipe in diameters ranging from ½’’ to 48” for PVC and ½’’ to 63” in HDPE. JMM is dedicated to developing the plastic pipe market by offering superior products, unparalleled quality, and ensuring that its business makes a positive contribution to the environment, the communities it serves, its customers, and employees.
