Started in Stirling, NJ, USA, the business presently operates in Bound Brook, NJ USA.
On September 19, 1999, just 4 weeks after moving into the newly renovated building, Hurricane Floyd hit the North East USA and the Raritan River ran over its banks and drowned town of Bound Brook. The new facilities were under 12 feet of water. JANEL, Inc. suffered a total loss of building, records, computers and inventory. However; business operations did not skip a beat mainly by the loyal and determined staff establishing a temporary office from which orders were processed and customers were serviced by directship and new inbound inventory. By November 1999, the building was re-renovated and it was business as usual.
April, 16, 2007 had another round of disaster with the Raritan River; Janel, Inc. was submerged with 6 feet of water to the facility and total losses of building, records, computers and inventory, again. Direct ship orders were worked up with the vendors and the new, re-renovation finished in November 2007.
March 2010, the one hundred year floods seem to be reoccurring much more frequently. The facility was
marginally affected by 3 inches of water, having a downtime of 7 business days, mostly from waiting for the
power grid to be re-activated.
The US Army Corps of Engineers have been diligently working on a flood control project for the town of Bound
Brook, NJ. "A Project Cooperation Agreement was signed 24 June 1999 with the State of New Jersey. The
following project features have been constructed to date and are currently in place: Segment U levees and
floodwalls; Segment R1 levee; Talmage Avenue Bridge raising; Lincoln Blvd Bridge raising; Segment T
levee, pump station and closure gate; Finderne Farm wetland mitigation site; Conrail Bridge demolition;
flood proofing of 500 Union Avenue in Bound Brook; volunteer buyout and demolition of homes on Prospect Place in Middlesex Borough."
