John P. Lamborn Sr. (Jack) began his entrepreneurial journey in the flexible duct business in 1961. Over the years, his hard work, leadership, and vision have been realized with countless contributions to the flex duct industry, innovations, and marketing savvy. Most importantly, he touched the lives of many people he employed, mentored, and conducted business with over the years.
Being at the forefront of an innovative way to move conditioned air, Jack established JP Lamborn Co. in Fresno, California, to manufacture and market flexible air ducts throughout Central California. Jack established a second flex duct company, Norflex, in San Jose, California, to provide a more extensive distribution base for this revolutionary product.
Lamborn’s business was profitable and growing, so as the industry grew, so did Lamborn. In the late 1960s, Lamborn combined the assets of JP Lamborn Co and Norflex. With the help of other key investors, General Environment Corporation (GEC) was formed to supply flex ducts on a national level.
In 1970, a second generation of the Lamborn family (Jack’s son John) joined GEC. Being a stockholder, not a sole owner, did have its disadvantages, so in 1980 Jack and John left GEC to re-establish JP Lamborn Co (known today as JPL).
“At the time, people thought we were crazy,” John Lamborn remembers, “It just made sense to us.” The Lamborn’s decision paid off as JPL became one of the largest manufacturers of flexible air duct on the West Coast. A third generation (John’s son Jason) joined the company in 1997 and is currently JPL's critical decision-maker and President.
Today JPL operates four state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in California, Colorado, Tennessee, and Florida. The company has a solid reputation for providing top-quality products, innovation, customer service, and business ethics.
