JEB's New Plant Begins Fabrication
J.E. Berkowitz, L.P. (JEB), a privately held glass fabricator, began glass
fabrication recently at its new 200,000-square-foot plant located
in Pedricktown, NJ. The startup of the plant came two months ahead
of schedule. "We have stayed the course of our strategic business
plan, and this event marks the first step in taking glass fabrication
to the next level," says Arthur Berkowitz, president of the
JEB's new plant is designed to allow all processes to flow in one
direction, according to a press release from the company. The glass
moves from stock sheets to cutting lines, to tempering and laminating
lines, to insulating lines, and finally, racked or crated for transport
JEB's new Lisec Insulating Line joins the company's other two existing
IG lines, extending JEB's maximum length capability from its previous
maximum of 137 inches to 158 inches. It also adds an on-line gas
filling component and two sets of pumps for JEB's Black and new
Light Grey silicone lines. According to Arthur Berkowitz the firm's
overall IG capacity will increase by more than fifty percent.
In addition to the Lisec IG Line, JEB has invested in several pieces
of equipment including a fully automated cutting line supported
by an automatic Gantry system; an automatic seaming line; a horizontal
double edger and CNC machinery.
