JPW Industrial Ovens and Furnaces, an industrial oven manufacturer based near Williamsport, Pa., added a second facility to its operation. The new plant is expected to create 25 new jobs within the next two years. JPW’s Plant 2 will manufacture the company’s expanding line of standard industrial ovens. Plant 1 will continue to produce custom-made industrial ovens and serve as the company’s headquarters.
Plant 2 began operation in January with 10 new employees. JPW anticipates that an additional 15 employees will be hired between now and 2020. According to JPW, the opening of Plant 2 enables it to meet increased demand and maintain an inventory of standard products that will reduce lead times and speed up delivery to customers.
