LOS ANGELES (Dec. 18, 11:30 a.m. ET) — Pipe extruder JM Eagle will donate $1 million to the Hurricane Sandy New Jersey Relief Fund, which was established by Gov. Chris Christie.

JM Eagle, the largest company in Plastics News’ annual ranking of North American pipe extruders, began operations in Livingston, N.J., in 1982 and relocated its headquarters to Los Angeles in 2007. JM Eagle maintains a regional sales office in New Jersey.

“New Jersey has been good to us, many of our company’s employees are from New Jersey and my children were born in New Jersey,” said President and CEO Walter Wang, in a news release. “It is a privilege to support the recovery effort of this wonderful state.”

JM Eagle’s donation is targeted to providing food, clothing and medical supplies to the elderly, low-income families and orphanages residing in the seven hardest hit counties of the state including Atlantic, Essex, Hudson, Middlesex, Monmouth, Ocean and Union.
