Have you heard our exciting news? We are thrilled to announce we have been nominated as a Manufacturer of the Year, hosted by Pennsylvania’s own Pittsburgh Business Times!
The contest, which aims to raise the visibility and stature of manufacturing in our region, decides a winner in each of six different categories this upcoming December. We are nominated, along with two other companies, in the Category of 50-99 Employees. The Pittsburgh Business Times has stocked a panel of judges who will ultimately select the winner in each category. Recently, we had the chance to meet with the panel of judges and the other manufacturers in order to discuss Jeannette Specialty Glass/JSG Oceana.
What qualities about our company did we highlight for this panel? Essentially, we emphasized what makes our company special and unique. To start, we mentioned how we are a family-owned company who is proud to be “Made in the U.S.A.”—in fact, every aspect of the manufacturing process is done right here in our facility in Jeannette, PA. Many factors that have gained our nomination include our stocking abilities, the high quality of our products, diversification of our company, and rapid expansion of our company over the years. We also stressed another important factor: we are the last-standing borosilicate glass manufacturer in the area! Not to mention, we manufacture our unique “Hard Roc” borosilicate glass.
Are you interested in learning first-hand about the qualities that have made us a nominee for Manufacturer of the Year? Contact us with any requirements—we are always up for a challenge! Existing customers? Help honor us and wish us luck—they announce the winner December 6th!
