Signs of Change
As a kid, Joplin Building Material was a constant part of my life. I’d visit the office to leave notes on my Dad’s desk and eat Grandpa’s chocolate mints. I’ve been to JBM sponsored events and pointed out our delivery trucks on the road. But the cherry on top, according to the us grandkids, was wearing the JBM logo. I thought that my red hat was the best. I've even kept some of my old tee shirts and jackets.
Joplin Building Material has always been intentional about maintaining our reputation. We strive to keep current with products and facilities.
Recently, we celebrated our 55th anniversary. During which, we unveiled our new logo. Sleek and modern, it’s geometric pattern embodies brick and block. The bold colors catch my eye. And, it pays homage to the interlocking letters of our faithful logo.
With the installation of our new signs, this logo is making its mark on JBM. And, my new, red, baseball hat is making its mark in my closet!
