Safety Never Stops

JGM’s First Aid Support Team (F.A.S.T.) continues to expand and enhance services through safety certifications and “Go Bags.” Learn more about the safety team’s progress in our latest blog.


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 is proud to have been awarded a multi-million-dollar project through SSOE, an architecture, engineering, and construction management firm. For this project, our team will be responsible for fabricating and erecting a new, 318k SF manufacturing facility for Magnode, a Sharpe Company in Trenton, Ohio! This project will utilize 732 tons of steel with heavy crane rails and 1,100 tons of joist. Stay tuned for project updates along the way!

At JGM, we are committed to providing our team members with ongoing training and career advancement opportunities. Recently, Shop Bay Foremen, Robert Borrell, Mike Houser, Pat Kelly, and Nick Stuetz completed DVIRC Supervisory Training. This training prepared these individuals to transition to a supervisory role; give feedback and motivate others; address negative attitudes; and conduct effective training, which will all be critical skills in their new leadership roles!


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!
