Entrepreneur attends Netherlands trade mission

ORTON - Jake Tamminga, president of Jaylor Fabricating Inc., has just returned from a Trade Mission in the Netherlands.

He was honoured to be a part of Prime Minister Steven Harper’s delegation of Canadian companies.

While in the Netherlands the Prime Minister hosted a question and answer sessions with Canadian and Dutch Business representatives. The Trade Mission was concluded on March 26 and it is hoped that Canadian companies will be able to position themselves early and benefit from the Canada-EU trade Agreement as a result of these first steps.

“I’m impressed with the drive of our government to open up new export market opportunities with aggressive trade agreements like CETA.

“As a small business owner, with 75 per cent of the farm equipment we manufacture sold outside Canada, these trade agreements give me confidence that expanding our facility in Dufferin, Ontario is the right move,” Tamminga said.

Tamminga says he is honored to have been included in the mission and expects to see years of stability and strength in Canada’s economy as more trade agreements are effected.

“Canada and the Netherlands enjoy longstanding and expanding relations, based on strong people-to-people ties and a rich shared history,” said Prime Minister Stephen Harper.

Trade between Canada and the Netherlands totaled $7 billion in 2013 and the Netherlands was Canada’s seventh largest merchandise export market.

Jaylor Fabricating Inc., is located on the 10th line near Orton, and manufacturers TMR mixers for the beef and dairy industry. With 25 patents currently on the mixer and an additional seven pending, the Jaylor Mixer has earned a reputation as a leader in the business. Jaylor was built upon word of mouth and its success on farms. Its reputation for high quality spread rapidly, ensuring Jaylor mixers were soon distributed throughout North American and 42 countries world-wide.

Today Jaylor is a successful international corporation, but has never forgotten where it started and still maintains its roots firmly planted on the farm, with its production facilities located in rural Ontario.

“I feel very blessed for the success we’ve had and thank God for the opportunity to serve him, our customers and our great country.” says Tamminga.

As a young boy Tamminga  immigrated to Canada from the Netherlands with his parents and siblings, later becoming a Canadian citizen. Tamminga founded Jaylor Fabricating Inc. in 1993 and celebrated 20 years of innovation in 2013.
