Jessup Manufacturing Expands Operations with Addition of Coating and Laminating Line from New Era Converting Machinery Inc.

Paterson, NJ (September 16, 2020) . . . Responding to increased customer demand, Jessup Manufacturing, a leading global manufacturer of adhesive coated films, has partnered with New Era Converting Machinery, Inc. on the installation of a new, world-class coating and laminating line.

The machine is currently in the process of being installed at the customer’s Lake Bluff, IL facility. Despite the challenges presented by the ongoing pandemic, both sides have worked together to keep the installation and startup on schedule.

“For us, it’s all about meeting the growing and expanding needs of our customers,” said Rob Jessup, President, CEO and third-generation owner of Jessup Manufacturing. “This new line gives us a strong competitive advantage and allows us to deliver a level of product innovation that gives our customers true differentiation in their markets.”

Steve Blackowicz, Jessup’s Vice President of Sales, was quick to call out to upgraded capabilities. “Speed is a significant improvement,” Blackowicz said, adding the heater, chiller, and dual inline corona treaters as key features that will enable his global sales team to “meet the challenging and changing dynamics of our customers’ businesses…and – and this is a big one – be more competitive as we go after new markets.”

Rick Brizek, Vice President of Operations who led the team that selected New Era, said that after an exhaustive search, New Era stood out. “We were impressed with their commitment to quality. Our site visit was quite impressive…as were their engineering staff and top management. From our first meeting to interviewing their references to when we signed our contracts, New Era made us feel confident in our decision.”

“Working with the Jessup Team has been a great experience, a collaborative effort from the initial sales call through the current installation phase,” said John Looser, New Era Vice President-Sales Engineer. “New Era’s depth and experience with designing and manufacturing Coating and Laminating Equipment, along with Jessup’s vast production and product knowledge, resulted in a well-engineered, efficient and safe production machine.”
