History of

2005

As the greenhouse industry expanded, the need for a local packaging supply emerged. With extensive knowledge of the industry, Jakait Packaging was formed as a local all-in-one solution. We began with 4000 square feet from a rented barn, a single delivery truck and a staff of 3 committed to delivering greenhouse growers affordable, pre-made cartons on-time. Quality products, fair pricing and reliable service has positioned Jakait Packaging as the premier supplier of corrugated packing in the greenhouse industry.

2007

It was evident that in order to maintain our on-time deliveries, all transportation should be handled from our own fleet. In 2007, Jakait Express was founded, with 2 trucks and 4 trailers.

2008

Marked two milestones for the company: the construction of a 21,000 square foot distribution center commenced and the Leamington District Chamber of Commerce recognized Jakait Packaging as the winner of its Innovation Award.

2009

Construction began in 2009 to double the distribution center, expand the transportation fleet, add manufacturing machines and add office help.

2010

Jakait added almost 20,000 square feet of warehousing and office space when it acquired a warehousing operation a few doors away.

2015

Today the Jakait Group has expanded to 125,000 square feet of warehousing and office space in Kingsville, Ontario, 18 assembly machines and a fleet of 25 trucks and 100 trailers. Jakait has added a new division, Jakait Print. Ready for full production in 2015, we will be producing superior quality pressure sensitive labels with their 12 colour flexographic web press.

For the last 5 years, Jakait Group has also been recognized as one of Canada’s Fast Growing Companies by Profit Magazine. Fair Prices, Quality and On-time Delivery have guided our growth and will continue to be our pillars into the future.
