History

In 1982, Formosa Plastics purchased the eight plants comprising the plastic-pipe operations of Johns Manville to form J-M Manufacturing, headquartered in Livingston, N.J.[3]

In November 2005, Walter Wang acquired 100 percent of the company from Formosa Plastics. J-M Manufacturing grew to a 14-plant enterprise by 2007, when it acquired the second largest plastic-pipe manufacturer, PW Eagle.[4] The company relocated its headquarters to Los Angeles in 2008.[5]

JM Eagle offers full range of common product lines, as well as specialty and unique pipe products.

Philanthropy

Today, 400 miles of donated JM Eagle pipe is carrying clean water to nearly 200,000 people in eight countries in the Sub-Saharan region.[6] Thanks to JM Eagle s financial and product donations in Thailand, the villages of Santisuk and Pateung have received irrigation and clean drinking water. And JM Eagle s donation of 45,600 feet of PVC pipe to construct an 8.5-mile pipeline now brings clean water to the people of Santa Cruz, Honduras.[7]
