Algoma Mop Manufacturers, a mop manufacturing company located in Algoma, WI can now add major motion picture prop supplier to its list of business accomplishments. Algoma Mop was contacted by a Prop Master who works for 20th Century Fox earlier in 2015, asking if Algoma Mop could provide some custom made mops for a movie that was going into production. That movie is JOY.
JOY is the story of a family across four generations and the woman, Joy Mangano, one of America's most successful entrepreneurs who invents the Miracle Mop and rises to become founder and matriarch of a powerful family business dynasty.
During the production of JOY, Algoma Mop not only provided the Prop Master with over 500 mops in various stages of production but also large bales of yarn and metal-fabricated, hand-operated, mop looping work stations. Algoma Mop contracted with Olson Fabrication of Algoma to create parts used in the production of these machines. Some scrap yarn pieces and cotton dust bunnies were also sent to get the full effect of a mop manufacturing floor.  
JOY opens in theaters on Christmas Day and is a major film release featuring Jennifer Lawrence, as Joy Mangano, Bradley Cooper, and Robert De Niro. The producer is David O. Russell, known for Silver Linings Playbook (2012), American Hustle (2013), and Three Kings (1999).
