As a diversified company.
Juniper Industries, which has been operating out of its headquarters in
Middle Village, N.Y. since 1928, has been dubbed the premier inde- pendent manufacturer and develop- er of Navy standard watertight doors, hatches, scuttles and man- holes.
To maintain this position that
Juniper has worked to achieve within the industry, the company invests in a large inventory of parts, which enables them to supply ship- yards and repair facilities the hard- ware their customers need — right off the shelf.
In addition to product innovation.
Juniper provides its customers with virtual online price quotes and ordering system as well as direct technical assistance through a vari- ety of mediums via phone, fax and its informational web "Tips and
Techniques" section. Juniper also offers comprehensive training courses instructed by technical spe- cialists in the field with regards to watertight closure repair and parts replacement.
The company, which boasts more than 200 employees also offers a line of ventilation products includ- ing dampers, flame arresters, duct, duct fittings, access plates, deck ventilators and bellmouths.
Even though the company recently added an improved actuat- ing system to its toxic gas dampers making the product more efficient and cost effective, they will still, through its research and develop- ment, stop at nothing to continual- ly assess this growth potential in the damper field, and is actively keeping an ongoing watch to increase its share of the air control, fire, smoke and toxic gas damper market.
The company has also grabbed a foothold in its electronic technolo- gy through its EDI capability, which has paved the way for suc- cessful compliance of strict DVD contracts for some of its largest clients. sO/-
Juniper's Air Sweeps (Part# JE-123) are manufactured from galvanized steel, alu- minum or stainless steel. The company will tailor dimensions to each cutomer's spe- cific needs.
What does the future hold for
Juniper? The company will undoubtedly make headlines with its involvement in two high-profile projects currently underway for the
U.S. Navy and U.S. Coast Guard.
The company will be involved in supplying its products for both the
Navy Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) and U.S. Coast Guard Deepwater program. In no uncertain terms did
Juniper become involved with these projects by chance as they have proven themselves through successful relationships with repeat customers such as the U.S. Navy, and both the Northrop Grumman and General Dynamics Groups — all of whom are involved with these current programs.
The focus of the 75-year old com- pany remains on continuous prod- uct improvement as evidenced by its capital expenditures of the latest
The most recent addition to
Juniper's current facility list includes a 357-ton, 14-ft. 11 axis
Trumpf press brake. This new addi- tion complements Juniper's exist- ing line of press brakes, which range in size from 50-ton, 3 ft. to 750 ton, 20 ft.
