James C. White Company (JCWCO) was founded in 1952 by Jim & Bettye White as a tubing, tube fitting, pressure gauge, and valve distributor. Shortly after launching the company, they identified a need in the process industry for a secure system to support and protect instrument tubing. In 1954, Jim invented TUBETRACK®, the first industrial tray system for instrument tubing. TUBETRACK® is the original and most secure continuous tray support system for instrumentation and controls.Read More
In the mid-1960s, Jim and his team began designing and manufacturing NC Series seismic tube clamps for the growing nuclear industry. It was during this time that the company founded its Quality Assurance Program. As the nuclear industry in America continued to accelerate, the company’s QA Program became a massive success, and the JCWCO name continued to fortify as the standard for quality manufacturing of instrumentation support systems.
Jim and Bettye White knew that growing their business meant earning the trust of those they served in the industry. Jim was well-known among his team and peers for his numerous witty sayings. One of his most famous sayings was, “Good business is business that is good for both parties.” This mantra wasn’t just a saying for Jim but a daily way of life. This truth reflected how he expected the team to treat all customers, vendors, and fellow teammates. Jim & Bettye forged three elements into the company’s DNA that still operate as the company’s core values nearly seventy years later: Quality, Relationships, and Service.
In 2005, Tom White became the company owner and president. Tom’s lifelong pursuit of learning, his knowledge as an engineer, and his business experience as the owner and operator of a highly successful crane and conveyor company brought innovation and advancement to JCWCO. Like his father, Tom continues to invest daily in the people and products at JCWCO. Under his leadership, the company continues to make significant advances in new product designs and manufacturing capabilities.
In the early 2000s, to expand into new product categories, the company launched a long-term strategy to modernize the factory. This commitment allowed the company to expand its capabilities and earn more customers’ trust by consistently delivering the best quality and service customers expect from the JCWCO brand.
In 2008, the company launched the first CABLE-RACE® catalog. This ventilated tray system is engineered and manufactured at the company’s factory to protect electrical, data, and instrument control cables. Every product in the CABLE-RACE® catalog is UL classified and is suitable for bonding and grounding electrical equipment. This product line allowed the company to grow by advancing into new markets.
In 2009, after many years of research and development, the company began manufacturing Instrument Mounting Stands. Knowing there was an opportunity to solve the poor quality and late deliveries customers had experienced with other companies, the Engineering team at JCWCO developed the best instrument stands available on the market.
When it comes to quality and reliability, experience matters! The reputation of James C. White Company, Inc. speaks for itself. It has taken seven decades of listening and learning from customers to develop that reputation. The team at JCWCO knows that by continuing to design and manufacture quality products, cultivate relationships, and delight the customer through excellent service, the best years for the company and the customer are yet to come!
