An experienced packaging executive, leader and innovator. Doug Jones grew up in the printing business. He and his brother Mike took over H. J. Jones-Sons of London, Ontario, from their father “Bud” Jones. They learned the technical side of the printing business by working beside skilled operators and journeyman print professionals. Over time, the brothers learned the business and most importantly they learned the value of exemplary customer service from their father. The company evolved into a leader in visual packaging and found a ready market for their products in Canada and in the USA. Not only the first ISO9002 approved, carton-company in Canada, H.J. Jones was also a pioneer in short run, flexo printing for folding cartons and carded packaging. Doug is internationally recognized as an expert in nutritional packaging and continues to assist those in the industry after selling the company in 2007.
Holding an HBA from the Ivey School of Business, John began his career in agriculture, working for John Deere in Ontario and throughout Western Canada. Since then John has worked for a national accounting firm and as an accountant and general manager in a plastic coating company and for an integrated farm and processing operation. John joined H J Jones in 1995 and became a valuable member of the sales and marketing team. John has continued to work in the packaging industry and re-joined Doug in 2011. He continues to learn about and enjoy all aspects of the packaging business. Above all, John is happiest when working with and providing individualized service to customers and associates.
