KPI-JCI celebrates 3,000th screen sold

By |  June 24, 2013

KPI-JCI sold its 3,000th screen, marking nearly $200 million in revenue for the company from screen sales.

“We are very proud that our success as an American manufacturer has allowed us to create jobs in Oregon and beyond,” says Jeff Elliott, JCI president. “We are also very proud of our employees, who have made this achievement possible through their commitment to continuous improvement and devotion to meeting the needs of the customer.”

Louis Johnson, who founded ElJay, originally invented triple-shaft horizontal screens in Eugene, Ore., according to KPI-JCI. The horizontal screens were designed primarily to fill a need to perform in the more challenging environmental conditions of the Pacific Northwest. After ElJay closed, JCI began operations in Eugene and was later acquired by Astec Industries.
