Meet Jay Webb
Trillium Health Care Products has been manufacturing in Brockville for over 20 years and prides itself on its commitment to producing quality products and to its employees. They believe that the key to their overall success is in recruiting and retaining people whose individual talents will help advance their business. Highly visible along Parkedale Avenue in Brockville, Trillium has over 50 years of excellence in manufacturing and is one of Brockville’s largest employers in the public sector. We caught up with Jay Webb, President and General Manager, to learn a bit more about the company and what he loves about Brockville:
Trillium Health Care Products is a contract manufacturer of drug products, producing market leading brands for some of the world’s top pharmaceutical companies.
The facility was built 60 years ago by Parke Davis, which at the time was one of the large drug companies in North America. The facility has been a presence in Brockville ever since then. The facility was purchased by Trillium in 1998 and now employs 265 people locally. Our team is made up of an excellent blend of experts in their fields who have many years of experience working for both large and small companies.
Trillium Health Care Products has a very diverse range of capabilities and are able to produce a variety of pharmaceutical products, including tablets, capsules, suppositories, creams & lotions, liquid solutions and suspensions. Trillium is audited and licensed by both Health Canada and the U.S. FDA.
Contract manufacturing in the pharmaceutical industry continues to grow. The industry has favourable tailwinds due to changing demographics and trends by big pharma companies.
“More than 9 out of 10 households in Canada have a product in their medicine cabinet manufactured at Trillium’s Brockville plant.”

We look to build upon our recent successes to accelerate our growth, especially in the U.S. market.
“I have lived in many places across five states in the U.S. but Brockville is the first place I’ve lived in which I feel like I can go from being at work to being on vacation in 15 minutes. That’s how long it takes me to drive from my office to any of our friends’ docks to be on the St. Lawrence River.”
- Jay Webb
I coached for a number of years for the Brockville Bunnies baseball program and I also sat on the Brockville Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors for a couple of years.
Brockville has reasonable housing prices, very short commutes to work, low crime, and is close to Montreal, Ottawa, and New York. Excellent people in the area make up a very strong work force and there is a very healthy work/life balance in this area.
Talk to people that have worked and lived here for a while - there are many success stories.
