It’s been 10 years since we opened the doors to our very first JM-owned and produced EPDM out of our plant in Milan, Ohio. Prior to opening our own plant, JM EPDM was manufactured in Taiwan. JM and our contractors were excited to have our product made in the U.S. We created jobs and an opportunity in a small town where those opportunities can be hard to come by, particularly when the local Tenneco plant had just shut down.
Over the past decade, we have launched new products including EPDM FIT with factory in-seam tape innovating the EPDM product line. The plant continues to find new ways to enhance the EPDM product offering and we are excited to see what’s next for our plant.

We truly appreciate our team at all our plants. Last month we celebrated our EPDM plant in Milan, OH for hitting the 10-year mark! The team had people scheduled throughout the day for plant tours with their families. Employees and their families enjoyed a catered lunch with brats, hot dogs, cookies, chips & drinks. The employees also were given baseball caps and water bottles as a small token of appreciation for all their hard work. Many family members mentioned how nice it was to see where their spouse works, and it helped to explain many things that are discussed outside of work.
From all of us here at Johns Manville, congratulations to our Milan Plant on their 10-Year Anniversary!
