Jenike & Johanson turns 50!
We are proud to announce that today, August 3, 2016, we have reached a significant milestone: the 50th anniversary of the founding of Jenike & Johanson.
Fifty years ago today Dr. Jerry Johanson resigned from his job at US Steel’s Applied Research Laboratory in Monroeville PA and joined Dr. Andrew Jenike, his thesis advisor from the University of Utah, to form Jenike & Johanson in the basement of Jenike’s home in Winchester MA. Dr. Jenike had moved there in 1962 to enter full-time consulting once Dr. Johanson had completed his PhD. At the time it didn’t appear that there was enough demand for consulting services in this field to justify the two joining together, so Dr. Johanson took a job with US Steel. After four years Dr. Jenike’s workload proved that adding another employee was justifiable. That humble beginning has grown into what we now know as Jenike & Johanson.
In 50 years the company has expanded to a global organization with offices in Australia, Brazil, Canada, Chile and three locations in the United States. We have the top engineers in the world in the field of bulk solids storage, handling and processing. They are dedicated to helping our clients with any solids handling problem that they have. Our experts have dealt with solids on the bottom of the ocean and in space. Our involvement in designing pharmaceutical systems that accurately dose micrograms of API through our largest designs ensuring that 1,000’s of tons per hour flow reliably into train cars is testament to the range and problem solving capabilities that we provide.
We are looking forward to what the future holds in the next 50 years and beyond!
