Of the thousands of products produced in New Jersey, only 28 companies were selected to exhibit their products for 120 state legislators, and Lt. Governor Kim Guadagno.

The annual event, organized by New Jersey Business & Industry Association's (NJBIA), celebrates New Jersey's manufacturing industry and according to NJBIA First Vice President Melanie Willoughb, "our manufacturers make great products and provide good-paying jobs for workers all over the state."

Doan Pendleton, VP of Sales and Marketing at VAC-U-MAX expressed the importance of events like this that support manufacturing in New Jersey. "Keeping business here in the states is important not only for local economies, but also overall economic recovery," he said.

All products are produced at the company's Belleville, New Jersey facility which includes a fully functional 6,000-sq-ft test and demonstration facility equipped to conduct a plethora of vacuum conveying tests to simulate actual conditions at a customer's site.

VAC-U-MAX is family owned and operated, and Pendleton says, "I believe that there is a greater responsibility to people and to product when everything is produced under one roof. There is no big corporation to hide behind, so it makes you more accountable."
