That contract places the company on the cusp of getting other large government contracts for water- and fuel-distribution systems, said Stephon Starrantino, JGB vice president.
"The scope of experience that we're getting on this contract will really put us in a great position with the government to bid on more comprehensive contracts," he said.
About 80 percent of JGB's work serves the military. Twenty years ago, most of the company's work was in building hoses and fittings for companies such as Bristol-Myers Squibb, Carrier Corp., Chrysler and Kodak, Starrantino said.
In 1981, company founder Jay Bernhardt recognized that JGB's high standards could help it win government contracts that set strict standards for product quality, Starrantino said.
Sales in the last four years grew about $25 million, and the company is on track to earn $65 million in sales this year, Starrantino said.
"In the war effort, our capabilities have been called on," he said.
The company supplied to New Orleans two washer-dryer systems that normally serve troops in the field to meet the laundry requirements of people living in civilian camps following Hurricane Katrina, Starrantino said.

The company processes thousands of military contracts each year for hoses, said Vice President Stephon Starrantino. Although the number is large, the dollar amount of each contract is relatively small, he said.
Its largest military contract so far is for a $40 million project to make a water system that can be used in the combat theater, he said.
Even though the military contributes about $50 million a year in sales, compared with $20 million for civilian customers, Starrantino said the company doesn't want to depend solely on government contracts.
Company sour on refusal of grant - Current News at JGB Enterprises, Inc. - Military Business Operation, 22 Oct 2005 [cached]
Company Vice President Stephon Starrantino said he thinks the state rejected the request because the company announced the expansion first.
Starrantino wondered how the state would know whether the company needed the money. The company didn't disclose its finances in the half-hour talk with state officials it had Oct. 13, he said.
"It's a bad excuse," Starrantino said.
The company plans to go forward with the expansion, even without the state's help, Starrantino said.
The whole incident, however, leads him to believe the state is moving its focus away from helping manufacturers, he said. J.G.B. gets monthly phone calls from economic development officials in Georgia and Virginia encouraging the company to move to those states, he said.
The company doesn't want to move, Starrantino said.

The hose itself is made elsewhere in the United States, said Executive Vice President Stephon Starrantino.
The hose features a "double helix" design that lets it keep water flowing, even when bent in half or knotted up, Starrantino said. In a company video, a demonstrator ties the hose up in three knots but the water flows still.
The fittings at the end of the hose are different as well. The inner dimensions are the same as those hose itself, allowing more water to flow. It weighs less than a conventional hose as well, said Starrantino.
The company doubled sales to $74 million between 2000 and 2010 and expects sales will break $100 million this year, Starrantino said.
"This is our entry into the consumer market," Starrantino said.
