WHERE WE COME FROM

A heritage of excellence

Jason’s roots trace back to Industrial Revolution era.
In 1985, Vince Martin and Mark Train purchased three companies from their employer, Canadian manufacturing conglomerate AMCA, to create Jason. Through a series of tuck-in acquisitions and organic growth initiatives, the company grew to its current state.

WHERE WE’RE GOING

Lean manufacturing. Proven solutions.

In both of our businesses, our focus is on developing deep connections with our key partners. These interactions generate insights we use to enhance our offerings and performance. That performance is most directly driven by our organization-wide Lean Manufacturing transformation. Lean Manufacturing drives our approach to manufacturing operations and product and customer management by understanding value in the eyes of the customer, creating the value stream, and continuously improving.
As we expand and further serve our world-class customers, we guide our work with focuses on cash flow generation, resource use optimization, and process simplification. In this way, we work continually to position Jason for the future as we bring both long-proven and newly developed solutions to OEMs.

Targeted growth initiatives
