JDL CEO Doug Black added: “We are very excited about the possibilities (of) putting these two businesses together. The addition of Shemin allows JDL to increase our presence in multiple markets including the Northeast, Southeast, Midwest and Texas. We welcome the Shemin leadership team and all Shemin employees to the JDL team.”
