For David Seyler, being successful in business enables him to give back to New Hamburg's community.

How long have you been in business, and how many employees do you have?
We've been in business since 1966 - nearly 50 years. We currently employ 135 people.

Were you born in New Hamburg?
No. I lived on a farm with my parents about 6 kilometers west of New Hamburg, and I've known the town for as long as I can remember. I live and work here now. I have friends here who I went to high school with and business associates who I've known for many years. This is a friendly, supportive and caring community. Working together to promote the well-being of the whole community is its foundation.

What do you love most about New Hamburg?
The friendly people, easy-to-build relationships, people working together to help each other. The New Hamburg Board of Trade is a key organization that develops community, support for each other, and networking to open up new opporutnities. People have a good work ethic and want to do their best. This is a safe, prosperous community that has all of a city's amenities.

Do you belong to any service clubs or do volunteer work?
I'm a member of the New Hamburg Board of Trade and Canada's Technology Triangle. The Board of Trade strives to integrate businesses, build relationships to foster working together on projects/events for the betterment of the town. Canada's Technology Triangle is a regional organization which continously sells the attributes, benefits, lifestyle, and opportunities that it offers to other countries of the world, with the goal to have companies come and start a business in the Region and make it an even better place to work, live and play.

Do you have any family in New Hamburg?
I live here with my wife, Susan,  who is a family physician in Kitchener. Our son, John, is an Auto Technician at a New Hamburg vehicle dealership.

Which aspect of your business do you enjoy the most?
Employing people, plus seeing them learn while achieving objectives and advancing in their roles. It's important to increase business so we can employ more people, and be successful so we can donate back to the community.
