JM Eagle and Performance Utility Supply

Cities everywhere are facing serious challenges to the quality of their drinking water. One of the biggest problems? Corroded iron pipe. JM Eagle, one of the largest PVC Manufacturer's in the world, has launched a national marketing campaign centered around the benefits of JM Eagle plastic pipe for American infrastructure as well as American homes. Performance Utility Supply is aligned as one of JM Eagle's premiere distributors on the West Coast.

JM Eagle's non-corroding plastic pipe has a lifespan of a 100 years or more, with a guarantee of 50 years. Using this pipe can save cities and taxpayers up to 70% on infrastructure costs, while complying with EPA standards.  

JM Eagle and Performance Utility Supply stand behind this revolutionary, American-made plastic pipe that safeguards the quality of clean drinking water.

The Wizarding World of Harry Potter

Performance Utility Supply is currently supplying material to “The Wizarding World of Harry Potter” theme park that will be located at Universal Studios in Los Angeles. Besides a boost in tourism to the park, it will also generate jobs. Lots and lots of jobs. In the official news release from NBC Universal, their "Evolution Plan" for the 391-acre lot should stimulate $2 billion of economic activity in the region and create upwards of 30,000 jobs.

"After nearly a decade of work on the Evolution Plan, today’s vote sets the stage for our next 100 years in Los Angeles,” said Ron Meyer, president and COO of Universal Studios. “We are thankful for the support and leadership we have received from both the County and City of Los Angeles and are ready to get started investing in these important tourism and production projects in the next few months."

Concurrently, Orlando's “Wizarding World of Harry Potter” will get an expansion. Since the Harry Potter attraction opened in, company executives have said attendance has jumped by about 50 percent, but did not give raw figures.

"It was a game changer for us and frankly for Orlando," said Meyer. "The expansion in Orlando will make it that much more of a must-see, and we'll have the same experience here."

At Universal Orlando, one of Diagon Alley’s shops is Weasleys’ Wizard Wheezes - a vibrant shop featuring novelty items, magical jokes, and toys inspired by the books and films that will amaze the mischievous child in everyone.

Executives did not immediately detail their plans for the Hollywood park, but Meyer said there was enough room to expand. Unfortunately, that meant saying bye-bye to music and hello to Hogwarts. The Gibson Amphitheatre (Universal Amphitheater to us old-timers) closed last September to make room for the new park.  

The similar attraction in Orlando took four and a half years to complete, and the Universal Studios project will probably take the same amount of time, suggesting a late 2016 opening.

So far, Performance Utility Supply has supplied the Universal Studios project with the following materials:

  • Various sizes of GRC conduit, sweeps, segments, fitting and custom made nipples
  • Various sizes of PVC conduit, sweeps, segments, and fitting
  • Glue
  • Tape
  • Copper wire

Scattergood Generating Station

In August, the Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) began rebuilding the Scattergood Generating Station to reduce—and take steps towards eliminating—ocean water cooling, emissions from the plant, and improve power reliability. This project marks an effort to continue progress towards clean energy in Los Angeles. Performance Utility Supply, also located in Southern California, was contracted to provide the complete sub-structure package for the Scattergood Generating Station, consisting of all PVC Conduit, Galvanized Rigid Conduit (GRC), and the Fiberglass Conduit.

The following photos show some of the work currently being done on the Scattergood project with the materials provided by Performance Utility Supply:

Performance Utility Supply started delivering to the Scattergood Project in November 2013. Deliveries are scheduled every other day at 0700 with a tractor and trailer full of material. Types of materials sent to the Scattergood Project include:

·Various sizes SCH40 Conduit and couplings

·4” Fiberglass 90 x 48 Risers with 2x Swedge

·12” SDR35 Pipe Gasketed 20’

·Various sizes GRC couplings and conduit

·NOALOX anti-Oxidant

·Various sized of PVC fittings

·Various size sweeps and segments with various degrees of bends, all custom made

·Various sizes lifting eyes

Scattergood Generating Station is a 55-acre facility adjacent to the Pacific Ocean in west Los Angeles. It consists of three units that are currently conventional steam turbine generators that burn natural gas in boiler units to create steam. Unit 3 has the largest output, of 460 megawatts. The new generating units that Performance Utility Supply is providing materials for will be 33% more fuel efficient than the existing Unit 3, and feature advanced pollution control systems.
