Jones Metal Products celebrate 90th anniversary WEST LAFAYETTE - Jones Metal Products Company in West Lafayette is celebrating its 90th anniversary this year and will have an open house on Friday, June 14. The public is invited for tours from 1 - 3 p.m. “Ninety years ago, the company was a stamping and enameling factory,” said Chairman Marion Sutton. “Over the years, it has transitioned to a metal forming and heat treating specialist. Ed Mulligan, who led the company for many years, saw the opportunity to move it in this direction and develop it as a valuable niche player in the metal forming industry.” “We are continuing to add capabilities to complement our metal forming operation,” said President and CEO Dan Erb. Computerized laser cutters, milling machines, and advanced aluminum and vacuum heat treating services are examples. “Customers are looking for these additional services to be performed on the parts we manufacture, so we have worked to add them.”

Starting Fri, 6/14: “Man of Steel” (PG-13) “Star Trek Into Darkness” (PG-13)

Mike Baker, Vice President and Treasurer, commented on the transition in a different way “We have moved through the years seeing our products evolve from bedpans to aerospace parts and where raw material inventory in 1940 cost less than one sheet of titanium at $2,467 today,” said Baker. He also noted that the company has been in continuous operation in West Lafayette all these years and is proud to be a part of the community. Commenting on Jones Metal, Fred Williams, Vice President of Operations, said that the company has available more than 160,000 square feet of manufacturing space and 80 employees. A highlight on the tour will be the hydroform department, which Williams said, “…has the most deep-draw hydroform machines in operation in the country.” Machines will be working during the tour and safety glasses will be provided. Visitors are asked to wear appropriate shoes (no sandals, open toe shoes, please). The tour will include stops at shipping and receiving, laser, tool and die, stamping, hydroform, quality control, ProBell, maintenance, and heat treat departments. Because the hydroform department is at the core of the business, visitors will be invited to see demonstrations on several of the eleven machines in the department. Demonstrations
