JSJ: Innovating since 1919

JSJ has a great deal of experience in developing  businesses and building true partnerships, with the future always in our foresight. JSJ is a joint venture from Alvin E. Jacobson, Sr., Paul A. Johnson, and B.P. Sherwood, who rebuilt Grand Haven Brass Foundry after a fire in 1919 and officially formed JSJ in 1970. From a small beginning in Grand Haven, MI to a global presence as a growth firm, JSJ has stayed true to their values and roots.
