J & E Industries, Inc. got their start after two brothers decided to put their knowledge to use to build their own company with the core fundamentals of manufacturing products of the highest quality, in a timely manner and at a fair cost. Ed Lastauskas’ machining knowledge, and Jeff Lastauskas’ marketing skills led them to including their father, a skilled machinist into the adventure of owning their own business. Each working full time jobs, they would return to a purchased garage in Montdale, Pennsylvania each evening to begin the fulfillment of orders. Ed’s machining knowledge came from a natural ability, schooling and years of experience in this discipline at Weston (Lockheed Martin). Developing relationships at Weston (Lockheed Martin) helped grow their business. Jeff’s cold calling efforts in NJ consisted of Xeroxing pages of the New Jersey phone book and hitting the streets. This grass roots effort landed J & E customers, Farmer Machining, Ampldyne and their longest sustaining customer Ingersoll Rand (Flowserve). From the proper management of their growing enterprise they were able to attract business from, J A Reinhardt (Collins Aerospace), The Handy Tool Company, Breeze Eastern, Tobyhanna Army Depot and other businesses in New York, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Vermont, Maryland and California. Each brother focuses their energies where their strengths are; Jeff with purchasing and customer relationships, Ed with machining and customer orders. As business grew in 2003, after two expansions and growth in employment from 3 to 19, they purchased their current site in Jermyn, Pennsylvania.
