Emmerson Packaging’s History
Our company was founded by PG Emmerson in 1956, with six employees and one printing press. PG Emmerson’s simple philosophy was to provide superior service and superior quality products to our customers.
Today, we have grown to over 450 employees with 300,000 square feet of facilities in Amherst, Nova Scotia, and Belleville, Ontario. In 2016, we changed our name from PolyCello to Emmerson Packaging to reflect the Emmerson family values which have driven our business since its inception in 1956.
Now in our third generation of family ownership, and the guidance of PG’s grandson Stephen Emmerson, President and CEO, Emmerson Packaging continues to innovate and expand in the field of flexographic printing, supplying premium flexible packaging to a range of industries across North America.
