About us

(Click the arrow to slide and see "then and now.")

The D. C. Jaeger Corporation was founded in 1957 in Cocoa Beach, Florida as a supplier of technology products to the fledgling space industry. Several years later, the company relocated to Orlando where we began providing hands-on training products for the vocational training market. 
Since that time, technology has changed considerably, as have our services and products.

Over the past 64 years D. C. Jaeger Corporation has built strong relationships with the Country's leading educational product manufacturers which allow us to provide a broad product mix to workforce training and STEM programs across the state. 

As a full-service company ready for the challenge of preparing Florida's students and workers, we represent companies who have developed, designed and have proven training methods for success in the classroom.  We then turn around and offer these solutions to career & technical education (CTE) programs throughout the state of Florida.

Florida’s leadership now faces a new challenge: how to quickly diversify our state’s economy from its dependence on tourism to other areas (manufacturing, etc.) that would give us the financial stability needed by our Legislature in order to make sound policy and budget decisions.   A  renewed emphasis on CTE, STEM and an increasing education budget, has given rise to a new series of state initiatives that are targeted to growing high skill/high wage occupations.
