Charity : Burlington Walk for MS

Arjay Engineering is proud to be an active member of our community, as well as the communities of our employees.

Kelly, our Documention/Compliance Co-ordinator, is taking part in the Burlington MS Walk, and Arjay is sponsoring a donation on her behalf. Kelly is currently in training to run the 5K, and we’re cheering her on from the sidelines! Kelly is an avid supporter of this cause because it hits close to home. Her sister, Lori, was diagnosed with MS when she was 27 and she’s doing well and while it is a daily struggle, she is maintaining good health

Charity is very important to our community and we are proud to help support in any way. The Walk/Run takes place on May 4th. If you can, head out and support to other participants, or donate.

Kelly’s donation page can be found here.

Arjay Engineering: What’s Happening in April

Is it just me, or is almost every one glad to see the back of March? It seems like spring is finally in the air, and things are starting to melt, warm up and grow. I, for one, cannot be more excited to see the end of winter, and pray for some more sunlight and warmer temperatures.

Here at Arjay Engineering, we’re ushering in this new spring season with an eagerly anticipated Spring Potluck. So far, only a few items have been posted to the sign up list, but I know I’m still contemplating what to bring. Decisions will have to be made since the date is sneaking up on everyone!

This past month of March had some interesting weather – lots of snow storms followed by warm days. I attended a GlobalSpec webinar about Social Media Marketing, and was pleasantly surprised that it was everything that I’m currently learning in school. Always a good thing to know and acknowledge.

Don’t forget that this month has a holiday! Arjay Engineering will be closed on Friday, April 18 for Good Friday. We will be open on the Monday after a nice relaxing long weekend.

Arjay Engineering : What’s Happening February

Alright. March is here, and that means that it’s time to recap everything that happened in February.

I can’t believe that we’re already almost a quarter of the way through the year. Time just goes by way to quickly.

Greg spent more time in Saudi Arabia again this month, and was surprised that the weather was cooler than expected, but then I guess even the desert gets winter, it’s just not the polar vortex that we’re dealing with right now. This time around he spent more time travelling to individual places and our reps out there to do some training on our products. Arjay is available for training on our products at pretty much any time, we had a couple in-house training seminars as well.

Speaking of seminars, our sister company, Can-Am Instruments is hosting a FREE seminar on Texture. Sound interesting to you? Click through to the links and register [if you are in the Ontario area]. Should be a great day, as Eric Chiang from Brookfield Engineering will be presenting.

Price lists have been updated again! Some errors were found, and price lists that haven’t been updated yet finally got tweaked [and are still getting tweaked.. forever updating!]. Hopefully, I can count these as the FINAL copy now, but we shall see. There might be more updates as we go through the year. Actually, as I think about it, there probably will be, as Arjay customizes most of our products for our customer.

So far, March seems to fairly quiet – Although we have a big project in the works, and hopefully will be shipping this month! Of course, we’re already through the first week, and things can change quickly!

Happy March, everyone!

Arjay Engineering: What’s Happening

Can you believe that it’s already February? Seems like we’re still trying to brush off the holiday festivities, and we’re already well into the new year.

Speaking of new years, Happy Chinese New Year! This past Friday, January 31, was Chinese New Year, and we’re ringing in the Year of the Horse. I hope that this year brings everyone luck in all parts of their lives.

A slight recap of what’s happened in the past month:

  • Greg’s been travelling again! This month he was back in Colombia, this time doing training seminars for our clients.
  • We’ve updated our price lists for the new year.
  • We had another renovation occur, this time our lunch room got the make-over.

We are also pleased to announce that one of the employees that we hired on part-time in December has now been hired on full-time! Congratulations, Kelly!

Here’s a look at some of the exciting things that are happening this month:

  • A delicious lunch-and-learn, where we’ll be learning the differences between RRSP’s and TFSA’s.
  • Our service departments will be getting a software makeover as well, as we’re incorporating a service package to make things run smoother
  • February 17 is Family Day! That means that our office will be closed, and normal hours resume on the 18th.
  • This is the month for customer training for our products, with 3 training sessions planned. One being in Saudi Arabia!

Highlights of December 2013

In the past month, things have been rather quiet. We had a couple of holiday parties, and at the company pot luck we congratulated some milestones for our employees. At Arjay Engineering, and our sister company Can-Am Instruments, our milestones are at the 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 etc year marks.

This year, we had two employees make the 5 year mark, two employees at the 10 year mark, one employee at the 15 year mark, and two employees at the 25 year mark! Congratulations, everyone!

We take it as a huge compliment that our employees choose to stay with us for as long as they do. We’ve definitely undergone some huge changes this year, starting with a renovation of the upstairs offices and still continuing with our software upgrades happening in the next few weeks. We have also welcomed two new faces to our team, and are looking forward to celebrating their milestones!

As we ring in this New Year, we are setting goals for ourselves and the company, as well as hopefully being able to implement the changes that are on the horizon with little stress and confusion.

Welcome to the New Year

Coming back after a nice, quiet, and relaxing break due to the Christmas holidays, I decided that it was time for Arjay Engineering to have a blog. In the past months, we have jumped on board with social media in the forms of Twitter, LinkedIn, and Facebook.

This blog will be the place where I post updates about products, our company and other interesting things in the industry.

Welcome to 2014!
