Meet the Team
Double J Manufacturing and Repair, Inc was started in 2002 by Jeff Enzminger and James Owen. They started their business primarily doing repair work but decided to focus on manufacturing. Jeff had experience building with used oil well pipe and knew it made for heavy duty products needed in the cattle industry. Jeff and James designed their first 30' Free Standing Panel and never looked back.
Since 2002 the business has grown exponentially. While they focused on manufacturing they did expand on their repair business in 2015. In 2018 Jeff retired and James and his wife Melody took over the business.
James and Melody are parents to six children and have two beautiful grandchildren.
While running Double J is a full-time job, they both love to be with their grandchildren
and be in nature. James is also a certified Private Pilot, EMT and Firefighter. Melody is
a certified EMT as well. Both have poured into the community over the 20+ years
they have lived in the area. They are both active in their church and have a huge
heart for struggling people. Double J has often been referred to as the job for
second chances. James and Melody see Double J as more than just a job, but as a
way to serve people and give others a second chance.
In October 2022 a wonderfully worded article was published about Double J and the second chances they provide. Click the link to give it a read. https://www.newscoopnd.org/news/labor-shortages-give-ex-cons-opportunities-for-second-chance/
