began operation of J&M in 1973 in my garage after some twenty-five
years of experience in the textile bag business. I saw an opportunity
to recycle coffee bean bags into burlap bags for use in the local feed,
agriculture and oyster industries. Business really took to my idea and
after just two short years I doubled the size of my operation, moving
into larger facilities in the wharf district of New Orleans. With the
help of my brothers, we expanded operations into new areas: manufacturing
custom separation cloths for grains ships frequenting the port and new
multi-use textile bags. Our products were welcomed in the industry, and
we began to develop a reputation for innovative and practical solutions.
Our ability to manufacture textile bags grew so rapidly that J & M
soon became the lone survivor in a once-thriving textile bag industry
in the city of New Orleans.
acquisitions in the 1980's and early 1990's and our expanded production
capabilities, word of our solution-oriented approach to business spread,
bringing us new customers requesting specialized applications for their
industries. New product lines were added to support and complement our
existing bag and tarp business. Full lines of waxed shipping boxes,
packaging supplies, plastic cups, and buckets helped to meet the diverse
needs of our expanding customer base.
end of the 1980's our line of protective tarps had grown and diversified
to include a wide range of fabrications and applications. We are proud
to have played a part in Operation Desert Storm, having been selected
as one of the three compaines in the nation to manufacture ammunition
covers to stringent Army specifications. We shipped more than half of
the Army's requirements in record time. The experience gained from the
military contract expanded our market and production of high quality
protective tarps into other fields.
Successes led to the 1992 construction of a new 80,000 square-foot manufacturing facility in Ponchatoula, Louisiana, and since the addition of another 60,000 square feet plus a 38,000 square-foot distribution center in Rayne, Louisiana, we now have the resources to bring the company into the new millenium. Our entire company is immensely proud to apply our traditions of excellence and innovation toward new challenges as we grow into the new century. We look forward to having the opportunity to serve you as we have served so many of our faithful friends and customers for over a quarter of a century.
