In 2022 Michael and Chris were at it again! Noticing changes in the construction industry brought on by among other things the Covid 19 Pandemic, the guys saw the need for more local contractors to tap into the rapid rise in retail contracting locally. Valley Store Interior Contractors was to be the next division of JEI. Valley Store Interior Contractors or VSI would bring together the experience learned at Jaboa in Project Management, contracting trades such as electrical and finishing, and efficiency learned through many years of tight deadlines and hard budgets into the Lehigh Valley to help meet what was a shortage of qualified and available contractors. VSI concentrates on the local area of the greater Lehigh Valley, PA, and just beyond into New Jersey and New York City. Taking on projects for smaller “mom and pop” local retailers as well as major brand retailers in our coverage area. We offer a more comprehensive service, working with partners such as millwork manufacturers, architects, and trades, to provide a turn-key solution from design to completion of interior retail and commercial environments. We have a dedicated team of project managers and coordinators along with Chris and Michael among others as site supervisors and installers. Valley Store Interior Contractors, the newest Division of JEI, Inc. is really a very experienced team employing successful methods to complete projects more locally!
In 2016 Michael and Chris, happy with the success of Jaboa found themselves purchasing a new Headquarters in Emmaus, PA, for the growing business. Located within that property was a small graphics shop that had been until recently, servicing the local community, providing vinyl wall and window graphics, vehicle graphics, decals and more. Seeing how this capability fit into the needs of many of their retail clients and having already completed many projects involving the installation of such graphics, an idea was born. Opening a sign and graphics shop would meet an existing need and allow the team to expand into working in our community at the same time. The duo relished the idea of making a name for themselves at home. An offer was made and accepted for the equipment and inventory, and Vinyl Press was born!
A dedicated team was hired with decades of experience in the Graphics field, and better modern equipment was purchased. Vinyl Press has been busy and making its mark on the local community while also partnering with Jaboa nationwide ever since. They quickly expanded into Screen printing, Promotional items and business printing along with the Signs, Vinyl Graphics and decal shops.In 2019, Vinyl Press was brought under the banner of Jaboa as a division of JEI, Inc. and in 2021, Vinyl Press moved into a retail location just off main street in beautiful downtown Emmaus, PA. Stroll down main street in Emmaus to see the many signs and graphics projects VP has completed to date.
