In an effort to strengthen its presence in the Canadian product inspection landscape, MD Packaging Inc. has become the exclusive Canadian distributors for the Mettler-Toledo Safeline X-Ray product line.
MD Packaging has had a long relationship with Mettler-Toledo Hi-Speed’s sales and service partner in Canada for over 40 years and possess a great deal of experience in product inspection solutions and packaging automation—including sales and service of X-Ray inspection systems for over a decade.
MD Packaging will also be taking over responsibility for service and parts support of Safeline X-Ray Inspection equipment in Canada and is investing in further resources to prepare for the additional demand with service and support provided by local MD Packaging technicians strategically based coast-to-coast.
MD Packaging will work closely with Safeline’s support group in Tampa to be able to provide 24-hour support in conjunction with its own locally-available programs and resources.
Running parallel to the partnership announcement, MD Packaging announced that as of August 27th 2012, Mark Cooper, one of Canada’s most technically knowledgeable X-Ray resources will be joining its team as a full-time technical and product manager. Cooper has been associated with MD Packaging for over eight years and brings with him significant technical expertise in both X-Ray technology and material handling solutions.
He will manage all X-Ray applications with both local field sales and service personnel to ensure consistency in deployment of X-Ray technology. As well, Cooper will manage MD Packaging’s test lab in Markham, Ont. and will be responsible for installation, commissioning and implementation of all X-Ray programs including radiological and preventative maintenance contracts. He will be working closely with Nigel Turnpenny, Safeline’s Direct X-Ray project manager to roll out this exciting new program over the coming months in Canada.
