Finding their Niche

Within the global fruitpacking sector, more is usually considered better: more variety,more markets to tap—certainly many a business has tapped that plan to great financial success.But one Canadian company has shunned the ‘more is more’ mentality, and has instead found global renown and success with its niche business plan.Founded in 1929 by Michael Leonard Catania at the onset of the global depression, M.L. Catania Company Limited was set up as a produce import and distribution business to service the Toronto area. Nowadays, the company remains a family business,but rather than the localized Toronto market, M.L. Catania has found its niche as an exotic fresh fruits importer and distributor with a global focus.

Refreshingly Simple

 Many a book has been written adequately noting and describing the health benefits of Mother Nature’s fresh fruits and vegetables for the average human being, but for one Quebec company, keeping things fresh has provided a well-deserved financial benefit and respect within the Canadian produce industry.First opening its doors in 2007, the Montreal headquartered Les Aliments Bercy (BercyFoods) is a successful family-owned processor and packer of fresh produce, as well as an importer and distributor of organic products. Bercy Foods—run by founder and company
president Michael Orsini—is a sister company of Courchesne Larose Ltd. , well-known and respected as one of Canada’s oldest and largest fruit and vegetable importers and distributors.

Good Things in Small Packages

Too much of a good thing is never really enough in most consumer packaged goods industries.And it’s hardly a stretch to say that things are looking good indeed these days for JemPak GK
Inc.—a fast-growing manufacturer of automatic dishwasher detergents who is really cleaning up, business-wise, in the product category’s buoyant,yet fiercely competitive, private-label segment.
Brought back to life from looming bankruptcy three years ago by a team of local investors and corporate turnaround experts, the recently renamed and refocused producer of household cleaning chemicals formerly operating under the former Witco Chemical banner is a happy testament to the virtues of sound management skills,manufacturing and packaging excellence, and a proactive R&D (research and development) mind set as key pre-requisites for corporate rejuvenation and renewal.

Building on success

When building a strong company, you need a strong foundation and a whole lot of bricks. Fortunately for MEGA Brands Inc., it has a plentiful abundance of both.Headquartered in Montreal, the globally operating company is widely acknowledged as one of the world’s leading toy makers today, boasting a host of popular leading brands in the construction toys,arts-and-crafts, presentation boards and puzzles product categories. The company’s roots trace back to the 1967 startup of the former Ritvik Toys, Inc.Founded by Victor and Rita Bertrand, Ritvik went on to become Canada’s largest toy distributor, but after having developed and starting to market its first generation toy construction blocks under the MEGA BLOKS brand in 1985, the company commenced its next chapter of corporate existence under the Mega Bloks, Inc.

BOXXER Case Erectors Now Standard with Powered Hoppers

BOXXER T12 and BOXXER T18 automatic case erectors are designed to efficiently erect and seal both regular slotted and half slotted cases with high-strength tape.

The BOXXER line of case erectors now comes standard with high capacity powered hoppers for continuous automatic loading. Over 300 corrugated blanks can be staged on the magazine and automatically fed, one by one, to the machine with no user interference. New hopper design incorporates a straight-line positive automatic infeed as opposed to the gravity-dependent declined ramp system.

BOXXER case erectors are constructed in durable welded steel and offer a compact footprint and easy mobility in limited-space production facilities.

Additional standard features include an easy-operate color touch screen, quick-change over mechanisms, right or left hand machine execution, leveling pads, auto-idler, and PLC.
