Ajax was established unlike other towns. The first establishment built was not a residential area but a shell plant. The plant was called Defence Industries Limited (D.I.L.) and around it, visitors and workers grew. This became the first settlement in Ajax. D.I.L. played a major role not only in the industrial life of the town. After World War II, the University of Toronto rented some areas of the plant to create more classrooms for discharged soldiers who wanted to study engineering. Unfortunately, in 1945, D.I.L. shut down and Ajax has no more industry to keep it alive. Four years after, Dowty Aerospace decided to build their station at Ajax. Years later, companies such as Volkswagen, DuPont, Paintplas, Ajax Textile and AEG Bayly Engineering followed.
Now, Ajax has more than these establishments. In 2015, Ajax will be hosting the shooting competition for the Toronto Pan American Games at the Ajax Community Center. The town is expecting around 1500 guests.
