JPW Industries Inc. (“JPW” or the “Company”) designs, markets, and distributes a wide-range of metalworking and woodworking machinery and shop tools under the JET, Powermatic, and Wilton brand names. The Company is headquartered near Nashville, TN, with wholly owned operations in Switzerland, France, Hong Kong, and Taiwan, as well as joint ventures in Germany and Russia. The Company sources roughly 4,000 SKUs from over 400 active supply partners and sells through a network of approximately 3,000 national and independent distributors, wholesalers, dealers, and online / specialty retailers. JPW‘s strong product portfolio, internationally recognizable brands, and well-established go-to-market sales channels create a highly differentiated value proposition in the Company’s served markets. Prior to Tenex’s acquisition, JPW was owned and operated by Walter Meier AG (SWX:WMN), a Switzerland-based publicly traded entity that is primarily a designer and distributor of climate-related technologies.
