Jake, Connor & Crew Inc. Expands
Headquarters in Kitchener, Ontario
NAID Associate Member, Jake, Connor & Crew Inc., is
pleased to announce that due to the increased demand for
their exclusive containers for the document protection and
waste industries, they once again are expanding their North
American manufacturing facility in Kitchener, Ontario.
“Our growth over the last year was unprecedented and
despite expanding our premises by 100% in 2014, we have
once again had to increase our manufacturing capabilities
and storage facilities at our head office. This will allow us
to expand our “on-hand” inventory levels and also increase
our manufacturing capacity to meet current demand. This
strategic move will also provide us the room to meet our
projected future growth” said Patrick Connor, President.
“After almost 25 years in the industry, we continue to
experience growth in all divisions and 2018 is projected to
be our biggest year yet. We are grateful to the continued
support of our loyal and new customers which not only
support our sales initiatives but also through their purchases
allow us to increase our contribution to our charitable division
“The JAKE” Foundation which supports animal and children’s
Jake, Connor & Crew Inc., established in 1995, also has
distribution centers in California, Texas, and England. The
company manufactures exclusive, patented containers for the
document protection and waste industries.
Vecoplan PT Shred Truck Series at NAID 2018
Vecoplan unveiled a package of performance advancements
on their Pierce & Tear series of Shred Trucks at NAID 2018.
The culmination of 3 years of intensive R&D, all improvements
were in direct response to customer input and have been
incorporated as standards on shred trucks in the PT series.
“Since introducing the Pierce & Tear shredder into our Mobile
Product Offering in 2015 we’ve seen tremendous growth and
with the changes made over the last year we expect that
trend to continue,” says Bob Gilmore, Vecoplan Chief Sales
Features and benefits in the performance package include:
increased payload capacity, increased throughput, a 3 camera
monitoring system, curb mode, maximum bin and tote storage
( 5 - 96g bins to be exact), upgraded Freightliner M2 chassis,
and quite possibly the biggest change is the introduction of an
industry leading 3 year warranty that comes standard with the
purchase of a PT series truck. All of these improvements have
been made on both the PT24 (non-CDL) and PT24 XL (CDL).
“In addition to the
the product line-up, we’ve added
technicians to our
and added new
employees in production to keep up with demand. We look
forward to continuing the forward momentum for the rest
of 2018 and heading into 2019,” according to Luke James,
