PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Hello and welcome to the Cambrian website. Thank you for taking the time to see who and what we are.

As President of Cambrian, I am extremely proud of how far we have come, and grateful to all those who have made this journey possible. I would like to take this opportunity to thank each and every one of the staff, past and present, who have contributed to the success of our company in their own way. Their efforts have made us who we are today and I continue to be humbled by them. I sincerely hope that I can live up to their high standards. I feel the pressure!

The growth of a company such as ours is based on the relationships between our suppliers, our customers and ourselves. We recognize that without our suppliers and our customers we are nowhere. On behalf of all of us at Cambrian, thank you for your support and faith.

At Cambrian we take our obligations seriously and we assure you that we will never make a commitment to a supplier or a customer, that we know in advance, we cannot fulfill. We have tremendous pride in what we do and we are extremely proud of the company we keep. To us you are our company.

Whether you are an existing or potential supplier or customer, I invite you to feel comfortable to contact me directly with any questions or concerns. It will be my pleasure to respond personally to any inquiry.

Personal Note of Thanks:

In the early days of any company there are always turning points that will either make or break its success. In our case, the key factors for success were driven by the support and faith of key people. These people, and the companies for whom they worked, had faith in a small upstart company like Cambrian to properly represent their products.

I would like to personally thank …

Mr. Nir Gihon, Haifa Chemicals
Ms. Laurel Mandel, Gadot USA
Mr. Uli Miersch, Degussa Canada
Mr. Ed Sakayama, Acidchem USA
Ms. Bonnie Vicari, Hoechst Food Ingredients

I would also like to thank Mr. Russ Garrard of the National Bank of Canada for the faith that was shown to Cambrian at a very critical stage in the company’s development.

To John Lang and David Luciani – Thank you for your support in the early days. Relationships change for many reasons but your contribution to our efforts will always be appreciated.

To Brenda, Mike, Greg, Larry and all the rest – You have my utmost respect and thanks.

To Jennifer Mills – I would like to thank the young graduate who took a risk to become our very first salesperson back in October of 1996. Your contribution made a difference and will not be forgotten.

To Larry Kapitan – Our first employee to retire from Cambrian. Thanks Kap for solidifying Cambrian in the early days and for mentoring a young newcomer to sales and Southern Ontario back in 1980 and beyond. From K&K to Quadra and finally putting it all together at Cambrian – my love, friendship and eternal respect.

Finally, friendship and kindness were epitomized in particular by my personal relationship with Mr. Neville Wood of APS Cotter Foods in Melbourne, Australia. Without Neville’s personal support and friendship, Cambrian would be a very different company and furthermore, I would personally be a different man. Neville passed away August 2nd, 2000 at far too young an age. He was a dear friend who will never be forgotten.

As we continue to grow, December 24th, 2015 will be a historic date in our calendar. We have completed our very first acquisition of N2 Ingredients.

I would like to congratulate Bob Crane and Jill Baxter on building a great business over the past 12 years. Thank you Bob and Jill for trusting us to continue with the same dedication and passion that allowed you to build N2 to the great company that it is today. We look forward to our bright future together.

PETER JOBLING, President
