In 1963, Thomas Furia started Penn Jersey Paper Company. He believed in a commitment to the customer, and in developing strong relationships. To ensure the company’s focus on relationships was maintained, Mr. Furia established seven pillars of success, and made sure those pillars supported every part of the business.
Service, Integrity, Pride, Dedication, Honesty, Loyalty, and Respect.
These pillars of success have allowed the company to grow and expand.
When PJP started, it was just a small business that worked primarily as a packaging distributor for Supermarkets. PJP began operating out of a 4 story warehouse on Delaware Avenue in Philadelphia. Originally, the company partnered with a local Philadelphia company called Genuardi’s Family Markets. As the Genuardi Markets chain grew, so did PJP. It was that first strong business relationship that helped PJP get started.
But Mr. Furia also knew that he couldn’t rely on just one strong relationship, so he made sure that PJP branched out, and the company began to serve other independently owned supermarkets, delis, butchers, and even small restaurants. Over the next decade, PJP continued to expand, and in 1980, acquired a small janitorial company. Through this acquisition, PJP expanded and began to sell cleaning chemicals, janitorial supplies, and janitorial equipment. PJP has avoided stagnation by continuing to grow and expand and invest in new business opportunities.
