JJ White “Best of 2017” List Revealed In The News

As the final days of 2017 ticked away, JJ White leaders slowly released a “Best Of” list on Facebook that highlighted some of the company’s biggest successes of the year. The list included projects originating from the home office in Philadelphia as well as the Midwest office in South Bend, Indiana. While not all projects are eligible for the “Best Of 2017” list due to privacy and security concerns, they are reflective of an extremely successful year for the company. From completing a Children’s Hospital, working at some of the most well-known stadiums in the country, and debuting on cable television, it was a banner year for JJ White Incorporated. Check out the full “Best Of 2017” list and find out more about each of these projects below…
