Form the desk of Lynn-Barre VanNess (May, 2010)

It is with great excitement that Wayne Barre and I wish to announce that Jacklyn Industries Inc. has been sold. Many of you will know our new owner, Peter Bozel, and for those who do not Peter will be in touch shortly to arrange a meeting. Part of our excitement comes in knowing that Peter is the perfect candidate to carry this business on and to make it grow. Peter holds a B.Sc in Physics, as well as a Masters degree in Chemistry from Concordia University and has over 20 years of experience in the field. For the last 6 years Peter has taught (and currently is teaching) BES 706 Water Treatment at Sheridan College. We are positive that Peter’s knowledge of the water treatment industry and chemical compounding will be a major benefit to all of our current customers.

In addition to the knowledge that Peter has, we are proud to inform you that Larry Harrison and Terry Orril will be joining Peter and his team. With both Larry and Terry continuing to work with Jacklyn Industries we are positive that the continuity of the business and the transition phase will be as smooth as possible.

The competitive products, reasonable pricing, and high level of service will all continue as in the past. Larry will remain available to everyone when assistance is required; plus you will have the benefit of additional support from Peter and his staff.

Peter has assured us that all policies relating to competitive activities will be supported by the new owners. In addition, Peter is looking forward to working together with Larry and Terry to expand the current product lines and venture into new technologies.

A lab and office facility will be set up in the Cobourg area for Larry Harrison and Terrence Orril. This will be for an interim period (perhaps two years) to accommodate both Larry and Terry’s needs. The manufacturing operations will move immediately to Brampton. Your assistance and patience in accommodating this transition period would be greatly appreciated. We will do our best to keep you informed of meaningful dates as the time for the change-over approaches.

Until the transaction and subsequent transitions are completed you can continue to reach Larry at the existing facilities in Oshawa. Please call if you have any questions. If you wish to speak to Peter he can be reached through his office at 905-458-8477 (Speak to Tara) or call his cell at 416-991-3709.

On behalf of Wayne and myself I would like to thank you for all your years of continued support. Should you have any question for either of us please feel free to call.

Again, we feel very strongly that we are leaving you in good hands. We know it will be a positive relationship for both you our customers and Peter.
