Plant in Lewiston, Maine, Earns Top Safety Recognition

Our plant in Lewiston, Maine, was recertified as a STAR Worksite under the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety and Health Administration’s (OSHA) Voluntary Protection Program (VPP).

OSHA auditors this week recognized JM’s up-to-date robust programs and policies; enthusiastic and engaged employees; and an overall exemplary facility that is committed to continuous improvement and providing a safe and healthy workplace for all its employees.

The plant in Lewiston manufactures a full line of specialty roofing products to support SBS and APP modified bitumen and EPDM, PVC and TPO single ply membrane systems. This selection includes expansion joint covers, retrofit drains and tie-in flashing systems. The facility earned its first VPP STAR recognition in 2012 and was recertified in 2015. 

Eleven other JM facilities have earned VPP STAR recognition from their respective states. The plants are in Tucson, Arizona; Macon, Georgia; Willows, California; Jacksonville, Florida; Richland, Mississippi; Fernley, Nevada; Richmond, Virginia; McPherson, Kansas; Scottsboro, Alabama; Belgrade, Montana; and Plattsburgh, New York.

As part of the recognition for achieving STAR status under VPP, facilities can fly the VPP “STAR Worksite” flag. VPP includes two levels of participation, Merit and STAR, with STAR being the highest.
