Pearson Packaging Systems, US-based OEM for secondary packaging automation, is excited to award Ontario-based MD Packaging exclusive distribution rights for the Canadian market.

“Canadian customers highly value local support”, explains Jaime Alboim, CEO of The Tessera Group of which MD Packaging is a division of. “This applies to a timely response in a downtime situation to understanding local codes and requirements and simply knowing our customs and traditions and sharing the same holidays. As a 100% Canadian owned and operated company, it is important to us to support other Canadian businesses by providing superior value at a national level that our international partners could not.”

Chris Gallagher, Chief Sales Officer at Pearson Packaging Systems adds “We are excited to expand our footprint in the Canadian market with the help of MD Packaging and look forward to a long and prosperous partnership.”
