Community Sep 15, 2017 by Debra Downey Ancaster News

President Greg Koppelaar said Friday it was a “super feeling” as customers, suppliers, and the business community gathered to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Bay-Lynx Manufacturing.

The family-owned business, located on Wilson Street near Highway 52, has been manufacturing equipment for the construction and transportation industries since 1992.

“I’m very proud and humbled to be able to take the family business into another generation and to employ good, skilled workers and support families in the community,” said Koppelaar.

The Koppelaar family, also based in Ancaster, has a 50-year history in steel construction. The company manufactures and exports equipment that it designs and builds at its 47,000-square-foot facility and head office in Ancaster. The primary products are stone spreaders, volumetric concrete mixers, and steel-beam cambering units, all customized to suit clients’ needs.

Bay-Lynx products can be found on construction sites across Canada, the United States, Great Britain, and beyond.

Koppelaar said the company employs 46 people in Canada and another 13 in Manchester, England.

The open house, he said, was a way of saying thank you to everyone for their support over the years.

“(The open house) gives us the opportunity to showcase our people, facilities, and products and share our excitement as we celebrate our first 25 years,” he said.
