JGM ON SITE: PROJECT UPDATES
Overhead Crane Replacement
The JGM team lives by the motto “When You Need It Yesterday.” So, when a longtime client’s power plant was damaged in a fire, JGM responded rapidly to get the plant back up and running in as little time as possible. Responsible for removing and replacing a 100-ton overhead bridge crane as well as all roofing and electrical work, JGM completed the job safely in just four short weeks. Watch the project video to learn more!

JGM GIVES BACK
Helping Our Community After Historic Floods
Recently, Coatesville, Pennsylvania was the center of historic floods. To support our community, JGM purchased much needed cleaning supplies from Hatts Industrial and Fastenal to help. Joe Messner, Jr. and Kim Gunther delivered these goods to residents of 5th avenue. Check out this behind-the-scenes photo!
Not only does JGM donate to the local community, they also offer a helping hand when needed. When a Coatesville resident had a damaged hot water heater, Joe Messner, Jr., and Jim Workman spent a Saturday morning replacing the water heater. Joe supplied the heavy lifting and Jim brought the expertise needed for successful replacement! Great work guys!
