Jaylor founder, Jake Tamminga, was born and raised in Holland and immigrated with his family to Canada in 1977.
Growing up in a rural community, Tamminga was influenced by his early farming experiences. He was inspired to change the technical limitations he saw in the farming industry and began working in steel fabrication.
In 1993, Tamminga began designing and manufacturing innovative Vertical TMR (Total Mix Ration) feed mixers for dairy and beef farmers. The market response to Tamminga's final designs and mixers was overwhelmingly positive.
Jaylor was built upon word of mouth and success on farms. Its reputation for high quality spread rapidly, ensuring Jaylor mixers were soon distributed throughout North America and over 50 countries world-wide.
Today, Jaylor is a successful international corporation, but the company has never forgotten where it started and still maintains its roots firmly planted on the farm, with its production facilities located in rural Orton, Ontario.
Jaylor is distributed by PFG Australia based in Melbourne, Victoria
