JPW’s Plant 2, located at 3607 West Fourth St., Williamsport, will produce the company’s expanding line of standard industrial ovens. Plant 1, located in Trout Run, will continue to craft custom-made industrial ovens and serve as the company’s headquarters.

“Small businesses are the backbone of our economy,” stated Congressman Tom Marino.”It’s small businesses that create jobs and improve our communities.
