Ready to Grow

Automated workcell helps greenhouse operator achieve end-of-line packaging perfection to keep up with growing demand for its premium tomatoes. Growing healthy, tasty natural products consumers can’t seem to get enough of is every farmer’s dream. And for leading Canadian greenhouse operator NatureFresh Farms, living the proverbial American dream has been exciting and exhilarating ride ever since the Leamington, Ont.-based company made a momentous decicion to expand its operations into the nearby U.S. state of Ohio back in 2015.

“I just love doing what I do here,” says Cornelius Neufeld, operations manager of the company’s Ohio business who originally joined NatureFresh at its Leamington home base about eight years ago.

Case packer absorbs manual labor

This paper manufacturer was able to automate labor out of its beverage napkin line for quick ROI and improved case-sealing quality.
Many automation and engineering feats have begun as hastily sketched ideas on a handy cocktail napkin. Therefore, it’s only fitting that a cocktail napkin-producing paper converter is itself turning to automation and engineering to speed up and lean out its operation.Based in Elmwood Park, N.J., Marcal, a Soundview Paper Company,
is one of the oldest environmentally friendly paper companies in the U.S. Its product line includes paper towels, napkins, bath tissue, and other similar products in various counts and sizes. For more than 80 years, the company has been reducing landfill by making paper products from recycled paper.

The Sums Of All Parts

Founded exactly 40 years ago, Colmar, Pa.-headquartered Dorman Products Inc. has done many things right to virtually become a household name in the global automotive industry’s key aftermarkets. Generating annual revenues of over US$900 million, the company supplies thousands of different automotive replacement parts, automotive hardware,and brake products to the automotive aftermarkets and mass merchandise markets across North America, Europe, Australia and the Middle East.Boasting a diverse product portfolio ranging from intake and exhaust manifolds to complex electronics, wheel bolts and door handles, the company’s strong market presence and prominence have been built both through strong organic growth and an aggressive acquisition strategy that last year saw Dorman purchase the assets of Boisbriand, Que.-based auto parts supplier MAS Industries.

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.

Grow & Prosper

A healthy mix of organic products and sustainable packaging keeps Monteal produces company in the green. A diet rich in fruits and veggies has long been touted as a key prerequisite for sound nutritional health and lifestyle, and it has done absolute wonders in the last three years for the financial well-being of Montreal-based Les Aliments Bercy( Bercy Foods).

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.
