Its customers will enjoy turnkey services
Montréal, Que., Jan. 16, 2023 — Creopack, a company that designs and manufactures custom protective packaging for shipping industrial, aeronautical and electronic products, has just acquired Emballages Montreal Express (EME), which offers handling, packaging and storage services for oversized equipment.
This deal allows Creopack to give its customers greater flexibility thanks to 35,000 square feet of additional storage space equipped with a high-capacity overhead crane, a very valuable asset in this industry.
Creopack can now engineer the packaging, use its own teams to pack the equipment, store it until project completion and secure it in containers to send to end customers. This allows customers to free up production space and focus on product manufacturing instead of packaging.
“Given the current global supply chain disruptions and labour shortage, this kind of flexibility is a great added value for our customers,” says Creopack’s president and founder Michel Champoux. Our sector is very specialized and there aren’t many players with this kind of expertise. We’ve always been impressed by EME’s capabilities and their highly professional team. We’re thrilled to welcome them to our organization.”
EME’s 20 employees will continue to work from the current Châteauguay facilities.
Founded in 1986 by Michel Champoux and Jacinthe Goyer, Creopack is a Canadian leader in the design and manufacturing of export crates, protective foam packaging and shipping boxes. Headquartered in Mont-Royal, the company now has three plants with a total of 140,000 square feet and more than 120 employees. It is working hard to minimize its carbon footprint by operating a zero-waste plant and reusing packaging whenever possible. For more information, visit www.creopack.com.
