EXPERIENCE QUALITY: SUPERIOR PRODUCT. PROVEN RELIABILITY.


THE PRODUCTION PROCESS: EXCEPTIONAL PERFORMANCE, CONSISTENCY, RELIABILITY. Customers rely on JM nonwovens. It’s the critical edge that makes the difference. That edge is product quality and consistency. JM technologies and processes repeatedly set precedents in performance and efficiencies. By insisting upon stringent process controls within a world-class proprietary manufacturing process, JM achieves specifications demanded by customers – every time.

Self-managing teams drive capabilities: A commitment to optimal product quality requires close cooperation between engineers and experienced colleagues on the factory floor.

“THE SECRET TO OUR SUCCESS: EXPERIENCE, KNOW-HOW, AND INSTINCT.” It’s one thing to produce nonwovens on an industrial scale. It’s quite another thing to achieve superior quality in the process. The key ingredient is the experience, know-how and even the professional instinct of the manufacturing employees. It takes exceptional skill and teamwork to maintain specifications. Often it is a production nuance that can make the difference between producing an average and a superior product. JM is committed to providing the highest level of process controls in the industry – and to manning the process with the best and brightest.

At JM, scale has its advantages. We are in control of our processes from start to finish. Our quality process includes customer engagement, raw material sourcing, logistics, product testing, employee training, and proprietary production, packaging and shipment.
