Dajcor Aluminum

About Dajcor Aluminum

Company History

From the ashes of the financial crisis of 2008-2009, the assets of Daymond Aluminum were purchased by 3 Chatham businessmen with one common goal - to restore this once proud company to a world class supplier of value add Aluminum extrusions, and reestablish the fundamentals that made the Chatham Kent operation successful for several decades: reasonable lead times, consistent quality and excellent customer service. On April 30 2010 Dajcor Aluminum was born.

The origination of the Dajcor name has deep rooted meaning and is a proud symbol of the family atmosphere that Dajcor Aluminum prides itself on. The first 3 initials of Dajcor represents the first initials of the 3 daughters of our President Mike Kilby: Danielle, Alyssa and Justine - A meaningful name for a proud family organization.

Dajcor Aluminum is located in the beautiful city of Chatham-Kent, 80 kilometres east of the largest border crossing in North America. Situated centrally in the industrial heartland, Dajcor Aluminum is excellently positioned to supply extruded, fabricated and anodized aluminum components to the US and Canadian marketplaces.

A true Chatham-Kent and Canadian success story, Dajcor Aluminum continues to invest in equipment and human capital to manage our growth narrative, while continuing to maintain the key business fundamentals that drive our business philosophy: excellent quality and world class customer service, with the goal of becoming the best supplier of value add extruded Aluminum components on the planet.

The company has grown to 246 employees to meet the labour demands created by a $10.2 million expansion in 2016. The expansion included adding new state-of-the-art fabrication equipment to increase capacity and efficiency, and enable the company to expand into new markets with more technically demanding components.
