Jyga Technologies will soon celebrate 30 candles

SAINT-LAMBERT. On June 20, 1994, Jyga Technologies (Jyga Concept at the time) was born. Specializing in the field of automated pig nutrition, the company located in Saint-Lambert-de-Lauzon, generally used to looking forward, is today very proud to look backward.

“It fills us with pride to see how far we have come, particularly with regard to the benefits of precision feeding for pig production. A concept, when the company was created, which raised the eyebrows of many producers, is today recognized worldwide as much for its advantages for producers as for animal health,” said Caroline Morin, project manager. marketing for Jyga Technologies.

It’s a story

Jyga Concept was founded in 1994 and launched its first power system prototype. Customers and research partners of the company since 1999, brothers Donald and Alain Lefebvre of Ferme ALDO in Saint-Lambert bought the company in 2004 before renaming it. In addition to the development of new products, expansion continued with the opening of offices in Germany in 2014 and in Kansas (United States) in 2018, before acquiring the new Lambertine factory of nearly 80,000 ft² in 2020.

You should know that throughout this time, the company has remained the owner of its experimental farm of 2,200 sows, ensuring that the merchandise continues to meet the needs of producers. “All products are rigorously tested in real conditions,” says Ms. Morin.

The team above all

To properly celebrate its anniversary, the company is planning a series of initiatives to express its gratitude to its approximately 120 employees. Note that 90 of these are based in Saint-Lambert, while the rest of the team is scattered throughout the United States, Mexico, Europe and Asia.

“Their efforts and knowledge have been essential at every stage of our journey, from research and development to production and customer service. Their dedication embodies our commitment to excellence and innovation. […] Our commitment to excellence continues to guide us as we look to the future with optimism. We can’t wait to see where the next generation will take the company,” said its president Alain Lefebvre.

For Jyga Technologies, the next challenge will be to integrate artificial intelligence into their feeding systems, to even better meet the needs of animals and producers. International growth objectives are also in the sights of the family of entrepreneurs, whose third generation is taking up more and more space…
