PolyJohn Canada: Rama Plastics, Orillia, Ontario

Following a move to expanded facilities in Orillia, Ontario, 75 miles north of Toronto, Rama announced the appointment of Jake Groen as its new general manager, replacing Margaret Keech, who retired after 27 years with the company.

Jake, originally from The Netherlands, has been with Rama for 17 years and most recently served as Plant Manager, a position which gave him first-hand knowledge of the needs of the wide spectrum of PolyJohn customers throughout Canada.

“I think it is important to get to know our customers better in order to better understand their needs. To help us accomplish this goal, we recently hired Ted Hoover as our new Western Provinces Representative”

Ted, who was born and raised in Toronto, has lived in the western provinces for 27 years. He has worked in services businesses for those years, including starting and running his own successful portable sanitation business. He will sell the PolyJohn products manufactured by Rama in Alberta, British Columbia, Saskatchewan, Manitoba, and the Yukon.

In September, Rama hosted the Board of Directors of the Portable Sanitation Association (PSAI) at an Open House in its new facility in Orillia. The Board, which was in Toronto for its 2007 annual meeting, toured the new plant after a stop in Barrie at Winters Sanitation, a Rama customer. Sixty board members, friends and spouses saw how the new manufacturing will increase Rama’ production volume and speed up order processing.

Rama recently launched a new Website—www.ramaplastics.ca. Check it out to see the full scope of its operations in Canada.
