Jamesway Chick Master integration announced
TBG, a global leader in poultry equipment and hatchery solutions, announced last week that it will combine the operations of its Jamesway and Chick Master businesses.
The move -- to be completed by March of 2021 -- will establish a new combined headquarters with manufacturing operations physically integrated at the existing Jamesway facility in Cambridge, Ontario, Canada. While the integration will include procurement, quality, finance, human resource and IT, a US office will continue to be maintained in Medina, Ohio.
"As we move forward, we will remain strongly committed to continue offering our two distinct, successful brands," said Paul Degraeve, CEO of the Hatchery Division of TBG. "Chick Master and Jamesway each have unique value propositions that our loyal customers have come to expect."
TBG, which also owns Petersime and Moba, has further plans to enhance the combined supply chain capabilities by continuing to expand their parts fulfillment centers, and moving into Southeast Asia and the Southern United States later this year.
Additionally, starting by March 2021, the organisation will begin implementation of new global front-end commercial structure to be developed by the existing commercial leadership of both businesses.
The new combined organisation, to be known as Jamesway Chick Master Incubator Company, will be led by Denis Kan, with continued strong support from Nate Goodnow.
