Jaylor inducted into Canadian Manufacturing Hall of Fame

ORTON - Jaylor International was inducted into the Canadian Manufacturing Hall of Fame on June 13 at a ceremony hosted by Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters (CME).

At the ceremony, Jaylor was honoured with the Essence of Philanthropy award. The award recognizes “an outstanding Canadian business for its long-term dedication to serving their regional, provincial, national or global community.” according to Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters (CME).

Following the January 2010 quake in Haiti, Jaylor organized an impressive crisis response effort, working alongside non–profit organizations to ship five containers packed with over $500,000 and 11,000–cubic–feet worth of medical equipment, construction tools, shelter, clothing and power generators to the people of Haiti.

Despite all their hard work founder and President of Jaylor, Jake Tamminga responded with humble surprise.

“It is with sincere gratitude and utter surprise that we have received this acknowledgment,” said Tamminga. “I am grateful to everyone involved in collecting and moving these supplies to those in Haiti who needed them so desperately.”

Tamminga acknowledges this induction was the result of teamwork.

“A special thank–you to the staff at Jaylor, who donated, collected, loaded, and arranged shipping largely on their own time,” he said.

“I must also express gratitude to all the suppliers, farmers, local business, schools, churches, and friends that donated supplies ranging from tents and building materials to soup mix and clothing. Above all I thank God for giving us all the means to help; I pray it may have aided the Haitians who have experienced so much loss.”

Jaylor is also active with the local chapter of the 4–H Club, as well as other youth farming programs, and has led poverty alleviation projects in the Ukraine.

“Jaylor represents what it truly means to be Canadian,” says CME President and CEO Jayson Myers. “Leaders on the cutting edge of technology, volunteering their time and resources in the name of compassion and community.”
