Some Things Never Change

In a recent interview, Jeff Bezos mentioned people always ask him, “What’s going to change in the next 10 or 20 years?”

He also said he is never asked “What’s NOT going to change in the future?”

But they should ask… because that’s the only thing you can count on. More importantly, it’s what he’s building his company around.

He said, “I know that 25 years from now, or 10 years from now, what people will always want”:

• As wide a selection of products as they can get.
• At the lowest price they can get them.
• And they want them as fast as they can.

And That Will Never Change

Manufacturing in heavy industry seldom has a Revolutionary advancement. It is almost always Evolutionary.

Little tweaks here and there designed to improve equipment or process to increase production.

Everyone is looking products that deliver More, Faster and Better.

One Thing Certainly Never Changes:
• Production Equipment Will Always Experience Wear.
• You Can Never Eliminate It.
• The Best You Can Do Is Control Wear.


The wear you see here is frequently seen in cyclones, elbows and chutes made from AR400. Wherever material is sliding abrasion or impact on metal, you have wear. When you wear through the hard surface of the AR400 type steel, it is like an Oreo cookie; the center of the wear plate is softer and wears much faster.

Next Sunday, August 8, 2021; JADCO Has Been Managing Wear For Our Customers For 41 Years.

The word Breakdown can strike fear in the hearts of schedulers, for they don’t know how long production will be down. Everyone scrambles to throw in a patch to get running again.


Because JADCO QT-Plus ® provides consistent, predictable wear; it allows you to schedule installing a replacement at your convenience. Not due to an expected failure.

We have continued to improve QT-Plus ® over the years, assuring it is made right here in Pennsylvania.

This increased wear resistance allows you to focus on the hundreds of other projects and tasks screaming for your attention throughout your day.


Every square foot of our Chromeweld family of clad overlay products is made at our plant just 30 minutes North of Pittsburgh. Rather than force you into just one type of Chrome Carbide Overlay (CCO) plate like other vendors, we have developed and manufacture SEVEN unique types of clad plate. You are certain to find the right one for your biggest wear challenge.

As the leading manufacturer of CCO plate in the USA, you can depend on what you get from JADCO.

Many steel distributors buy foreign CCO where they have little carbide content and far less quality control.

And you have no idea of how long it will last.


To make certain we control every aspect of our Chromeweld overlay plate, JADCO has created our own clad machines.

For the last 41 years we have focused exclusively on delivering consistent, longer life for our customers.

Now you understand why JADCO delivers better results for our customers. We think differently by focusing only on your results.
