About J.L. Matthews Co.
Letter from the President
My grandfather, Joe was born and raised in Grove City, PA. He joined the U. S. Navy in 1932 and spent 4 years serving our country, when he returned home from the Navy he went to work on the production floor for the W. M. Bashlin Company. He quickly moved from assembly of product on the production floor to Manager of Production. Under his leadership he invented many products which are still used in the industry today, the most important was the design and invention of the Shifting or Floating Dee Ring Lineman's Belt.
The 1980's brought the 3rd generation with the addition of myself--Danny Matthews. While still continuing to run the business with grandpa's core values:
- Servicing the customer
- Having Inventory on hand to ship out same day
- Value Pricing
As J.L. Matthews Company heads into the future, we are preparing the 4th generation to uphold these same values and encouraging a relationship with the customer.
