For the tenth year in a row, Nova Scotia’s Emmerson Packaging has been recognized as one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies.

“It’s a great honour to be recognized for the tenth year in a row as one of Canada’s 50 Best Managed Companies,” Emmerson Packaging president and CEO Stephen Emmerson said. “Our company continues to grow our product and service offerings, and I’m extremely appreciative to all of our staff across our two plants for the hard work and dedication they have put in to help win this award. With their expertise, passion and the constant collaboration between teams and plants, they help our company mission of customer success come to life.”

Headquartered in Amherst, N.S., Emmerson Packaging’s second plant is located in Belleville, Ont.

The family-owned company has been supplying flexible packaging solutions for over 60 years.

Founded as PolyCello Bag Ltd. in 1956 by Philip Emmerson, the firm started as a paper distribution business before turning to flexible packaging. Emmerson Packaging currently offers mono- and co-extruded films and laminates, flexographic printing, and a range of pre-press, printing, distribution, and marketing services to clients.

Established in 1993 by Deloitte, Canada’s Best Managed Companies is the country’s leading business awards program, recognizing excellence in Canadian owned and managed companies with revenues over $15 million.
