JWF Industries

Est. 1987 / Johnstown

Bill Polacek started JWF Industries in 1987 as an owner/operator in a 30’ x 30’ two-car garage.

His organization has since grown to have approximately 500 employees, one-milion square feet of manufacturing space and seven subsidiary companies in Johnstown and Baltimore, Maryland, with combined sales of $120 million.

Bill credits the Top 100 Award to all the men and women that are employed by JWF Industries. To say they are the top is an understatement. JWF Industries thrives because it has the very best employees and leadership in the Johnstown-area. This resonates through the entire region through countless instances of community service by JWF employees.

In 2005, the employees of JWF Industries started their own nonprofit organization called “JWF Cares.” The employee-run organization was created in response to the devastation stemming from Hurricane Katrina. Since then, JWF Cares’ mission has been to provide financial assistance to employees, community members and fellow nonprofit organizations in need. Over $200,000 has been donated since its inception.
