JOSEPH MACHINE COMPANY 2015 GLASSBUILD AMERICA PREVIEW:
The 2015 edition of the Glassbuild America show in Atlanta is almost here! This will be a big year for JMC as we are showcasing the latest version of our fabrication centers; and an entirely new line of equipment for the commercial market.
In addition to proudly displaying one of our latest SFMC fabrication centers, the really big news is we have partnered with Mecal of Italy to provide our customers with a world class option for their CNC processing needs. The Mecal line is one of the premier CNC machine manufacturing companies in Europe. “Mecal by Joseph” will be the same line of quality Mecal equipment; sold and serviced by Joseph Machine Company in the USA.
To further expand our product line, we have also partnered with KMW Engineering of Germany to offer corner cleaners. The KMW cleaners, serviced by JMC here in the USA, will be an excellent choice for our customers. Adding these quality lines of equipment to our already vast selection of standard and custom equipment, truly makes JMC your one stop shop for machinery. The sales and service staff will be eager to work with our customers, and demonstrate the diverse selection of equipment being displayed.
The same JMC team our customers have relied on for years will be in attendance, as well as some new faces. While at our booth please introduce yourself to Tim Minne; our new commercial products director. Tim brings many years of experience in the commercial market to JMC and will be a great asset to our customers looking to improve their quality and efficiency.
Another new face will be that of Sotirios (Steve) Birbas. Steve has a strong background in electrical, Allen Bradley, and machine commissioning. Steve has been to the Mecal facility and will be heading up our efforts to service the Mecal line. The entire service staff, led by our service manager Glenn Lookabill, is ready to assist our customers on the new lines.
Like Timbuk 3 said, “the future’s so bright we gotta wear shades!” That’s exactly how we are feeling here at JMC. Please come and join us in booth 2247 at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta Georgia. The show runs September 16th through the 18th starting at 10:00 AM each day. See you there!

Dillsburg, PA. (July 25th, 2013) – "Mr. Campbell returns":
Doug Campbell began work at Joseph Machine Company on June 23rd, 1997. Doug has been an accomplished assembler for JMC but over the years and as time goes by it's easy to begin to take your workplace for granted....
Doug served our country in the Army from 1981-83 so he thought that maybe a new job associated with a military based organization might just scratch the itch to work elsewhere. Doug began working at the Lincoln Military Housing facilities doing warranty type maintenance. He felt making his way back to a military based work structure might provide an environment he would appreciate.
After months had passed, we here at JMC noticed regular visits at JMC from Doug while he was employed at Lincoln Military Housing. So when after approx 9 months had passed and Doug was seen talking to Scot Hamm (our production manager), it did not cause us to think anything other than he was here for a regular visit. This time, however, Scot happened to be looking through a file of resumes in search of an additional assembler as the workload here was continuing to grow. Scot asked Doug "when can you start?" and shut his folder of assembler candidates.
Doug soon started back and the answers he gave when asked why he chose to return to JMC were "I wasn't challenged enough at my new job" and " I missed it here". Doug was asked if anything had changed while he was gone and I was not too surprised to hear that he felt that the work atmosphere had gotten even better. That improvement was credited to the shop floor personnel. "That group has continued to improve in attitude and in quality over the past year, and the work atmosphere is simply better because of it" Doug said.
Doug takes pride in his work, pride in his country and in that fact that the machines he helps to assemble are made right here in the USA. That desire to serve our country continues in the Campbell family as his son Shawn has been serving in the Navy for 7 years.
