JETA SUPPORTS AMERICAN HORSE SCHOOL AND DENOUNCES HATE CRIMES
JETA Corporation is a Native American Woman-Owned business. Therefore, it is no surprise for JETA Corporation to support the American Horse School Students and Staff who were victims of a hate crime and racial discrimination at the Rush Hockey Game on January 24, 2015. The group of middle school students made a two-hour bus trip from the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation to a Rapid City Rush hockey game. The school outing was a reward for academic achievement; but the group left the game in the third period when some men sitting above them in a corporate box began to pour beer on, and shout racial slurs at, the parents and students. To support American Horse School and denounce hate crimes, Jeta Corporation donated funds and purchased t-shirts.

Neenah-based JETA grows to $20 million supplier of industrial tools
In the past 10 years, JETA Corporation of Neenah has come a long way economically and geographically while trekking the country to distribute energy- related tools to industrial businesses large and small.
Linda Grow, president and CEO,
founded the company in 2004. She
says that the company’s decision to
provide tools for energy companies
has been important to JETA
“We started as a distribution channel,
and we decided to focus ourselves more on the energy channel, which is fossil
fuel plants, nuclear sites,” Grow says, “It goes in many, many diﬀerent directions. When I say ‘energy channel,’ I thought: ‘What is always going to be around?’ People need energy, whether we’re in a depression time, or whether we’re in a successful time. So that’s where we focus ourselves, and it’s been a good ﬁt for us.” Continue Reading….

Linda Grow was very fortunate to be involved with the distribution of welding, safety; maintenance, repair & operations (MRO) and tools for much of her life, and this experience led her to see a gap in the industry that could be filled. To find success in the tools distribution industry, explains Linda, a business owner must understand the demand placed on facility maintenance and construction projects, especially those issued by the U.S. Dept. of Energy (DOE) and Dept. of Defense (DOD). She felt the industry needed the fresh perspective of a Women/Minority/Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (WBE/MBE/DBE). As a result, in 2004, Linda began JETA Corporation, a Wisconsin-based, Native American/Woman-owned company that supplies tools to the energy, construction and industrial markets.
