agreement #40069240.

VOLUME 67, NO. 1&2

But far more than the distance, it is the long-inthe-tooth excuse of a high Canadian dollar that
makes the plant shutdown announcement look so
naively premature.
With the Canadian dollar trading at a fairly reasonable US90-cent level as this issue of Canadian
Packaging was going to press, citing high currency
to add some sort of intellectual legitimacy only
seems to add insult to injury.
According to the companys own press release,
the Penetanguishene operation was showing
improved results in 2012 and 2013 when the
Canadian dollar was f lirting with historically high
exchange rates, so it would not be a stretch to suggest that those improvements would continue to
firm up well into 2014 just based on the currency
devaluation alone.
And even at that, the whole high dollar argument
is just so 2Oth Century to begin with. In this day
and age, a truly competitive Canadian manufacturing enterprise should be able to hold its own
even with the Canadian dollar being at par with
its U.S. counterpartits a basic requirement for
the post-NAFTA (North American Free Trade
Agreement) manufacturing skillset.
As it is, CCL Industries is recording a onetime $11 million restructuring charge related to
the plants closure and financial assistance to the
affected employees. In addition, it plans to spend
another $25 million in various infrastructure
upgrades at the Hermitage and Guanajuato facilities to accommodate the added production transferred there from Penetanguishene.
Its just a hunch, mind you, but something tells
us that for a fraction of that combined sum, the
Penetanguishene plant could have done sufficient
infrastructure and capital upgrades of its own to
help it overcome whatever competitive shortcomings it may have been struggling with that ultimately made it choose the easiest, and yet a highly
regrettable, way out.

JANUARY/FEBRUARY 2014

ime is money, were


so often reminded, in
the world of business,
and the packaging industry is
no exception to the widely
accepted axiom. Hence it is really bewildering
when companies who should by all rights know
better make hasty ill-timed decisions that with the
benefit of hindsight look more short-sighted with
each passing day.
A case in point: the recent decision by Torontoheadquartered packaging products group CCL
Industries to pull the plug on the companys
aerosol canmaking operation in Penetanguishene,
Ont., which according to CCL has been losing
money since 2009 due to the high Canadian dollar
and the lack of major CPG (consumer packaged
goods) end-user customers nearby.
Because our operation in Ontario now exports
its entire output into the U.S., the distance from
key customers and the steep exchange rise of the
Canadian dollar over the last decade combined to
significantly impede its competitiveness, CCL
Industries president Geoffrey Martin explained in
a brief press release, adding that all of the plants
production will be shifted to the firms CCL
Container aerosol factories in Hermitage, Pa.,
and Guanajuato, Mexico, by mid-2015.
While being physically close to customers is
always a good idea in principle, geographic distance is not in itself an overwhelmingly compelling argument for making far-reaching investment
decisions in the context of todays globally operating supply chains.
And it would bother us less if the factory in question was a division or subsidiary of some U.S.-based
corporation, but the fact that CCL Industries has
never been overtly shy about its Canadian roots and
origins, dating back to 1951, makes the announced
closure seem an exceptionally cold-hearted move
especially for the plants 170 employees.

INDUSTRY HEAVYWEIGHTS JOIN IN GLOBAL ALLIANCE TO EXPAND BIOPLASTICS USE


Using plants to make everyday consumer packaging
used to be a pipe dream not so very long ago, but
many scientific breakthroughs in biopolymer and
bioplastic technologies of recent years have not only
made that dream attainable, but also commercially
feasible for some of the worlds largest multinational
CPG (consumer packaged good) powerhouses.
To keep that green momentum going in full
swing, some of these leading global CPGs, including the worlds largest food company Nestl S.A.,
have joined the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in
a new international initiative aimed at accelerating
the use of bioplasticsderived from agricultural
materials such as sugar cane, corn, bulrush and
switch-grassto reduce reliance on petroleumbased plastics to manufacture consumer packaging.
Called the Bioplastic Feedstock Alliance
(BFA), the group also includes other leading
global CPG brand-ownersnotably CocaCola, Danone, Ford, Heinz, Nike, Procter
& Gamble and Unileverwho will work with
authoritative experts from industry, academia and
civil society to develop and support informed science, collaboration and education for standard
evaluation and sustainable development of renewable materials that can be made into bioplastics.
Joining the alliance means we will be able to
help build a more sustainable future for the bioplastics industry, while addressing issues such as

land use, food security and biodiversity, says


Nestls global sustainability manager Anne
Roulin, adding that bioplastics made from sugar
cane and other plant-based materials are already
used to package some of the companys brands.
Since early 2012, Roulin notes, several sizes of the
companys VITTEL bottled water brand have been
packaged in innovative PET (polyethylene terephthalate) bottles made from 30-percent plant-based
material, with Nestl now looking to develop new
packaging solutions from second-generation bioplastics such as molasses or cane residue, as well as nonfood sources like algae, cellulose and waste products.
According to WWF, one of the alliances key
objectives will be to guide the responsible selection and harvesting of agricultural materials used
to make bioplastics without reducing the availability of land for agricultural uses.
Ensuring that our crops are used responsibly
to create bioplastics is a critical conservation goal,
especially as the global population is expected to
grow rapidly through 2050, says WWF spokesperson Erin Simon.
However, fears of having to make hard choices
between the two land-use options are largely
overblown, according to a recent study from
the authoritative research institute European
Bioplastics e.V. of Berlin, Germany.
Using statistics from the Food and Agriculture

Nestls popular VITTEL water brand packaged in plastic bottles made from 30-percent plant-based material.

Organization of the United Nations and


calculations developed by Bioplastics and
Biocomposites Institute of Hanover, Germany,
the amount of land used to cultivate feedstock for
bioplastics adds up to just a tiny fraction of one
percentage point of land mass currently used for
farming and grazing activities.
Our market data depicts production capacities of around 1.2 million tonnes in 2011, which
translates to approximately 300,000 hectares of
land-use to grow feedstock for bioplastics, says
the Bioplastics: Facts and Figures study.
In relation to the global agricultural area of
five billion hectares, bioplastics make use of only
0.006 percent, the report points out.
Metaphorically speaking, this ratio correlates
to the size of an average cherry tomato placed
next to the Eiffel Tower.

2013 a Busy Year for the CCCA


CCCA Chairman Peter Moore

Report of Board Chairman Peter Moore's Address to Members of the


Canadian Corrugated and Containerboard Association (CCCA)
On November 21, 2013, the Annual General Meeting of the Canadian Corrugated and Containerboard
Association was held in Brampton, Ontario. In his opening remarks, Chairman Peter Moore, CEO
of Moore Packaging Corporation, described 2013 as an exceptionally busy year for the CCCA.
A year-long rollout of the Association's Strategic Plan in accordance with its Five Pillar set of
strategic objectives had generated a constant flow of projects created on behalf of all Members for the
betterment of their industry.

3 FLEXIBLE PALLET OPTIONS.


CAN YOUR PALLET PROVIDER DO THAT?

Topping the list of achievements, a major communications initiative was launched to convey the unique
attributes of corrugated board and demonstrate the intrinsic strengths that make corrugated containers
the preferred choice for safe Food and Beverage packaging. A comprehensive advertising and public
relations program emphasized performance advantages of corrugated compared and contrasted with
other packaging materials.

CHEP

CAN!

In a campaign overseen by a dedicated CCCA Marketing Committee and executed by


communications firm, Smithcom, bilingual advertisements in selected Canadian Food Industry and
Packaging journals were supported by editorials and advertorials reinforcing the key messages.
Throughout the year a series of targeted seminars and informational sessions covered specific areas of
industry importance. Three roundtable sessions addressed Human Resource and Health & Safety
issues. Human Resources meetings involved personnel from both Mill and Converting members and
included the first dedicated stand-alone Health and Safety session convened by the Association in
many years.
Four major seminars were developed for CCCA members, associate members and AICC guests:
Global Update with Mike Harwood (January)
Wax Replacement Update (April)
Global Update with Mike Harwood at the Quarterly Board Meeting in Halifax (August)
Dick Target LIVE! Production & Printing Techniques (October)

STRINGER

HALF

BLOCK

Working in tandem with the Paper and Paperboard Packaging Environmental Council (PPEC), the
Fibre Box Association, Corrugated Packaging Alliance, American Forest and Paper Association and
the International Corrugated Case Association, the CCCA addressed significant issues of common
concern, and participated in two Government Lobby groups: the Coalition for Competitive Power
Rates in Ontario and the Canadian Manufacturing and Exporters Association.

When searching for business solutions its important to have a partner


that can give you options that fit your specific needs. For 35 years CHEP
has provided our customers with innovative platform choices to help
customize their supply chain. From our performance-proven Stringer and
Block Pallets to our display-ready Half Pallet, CHEP is the only Canadian
pallet provider that offers all three options.

Looking Ahead
In his closing remarks, Peter Moore summarized the challenges currently faced by Canada's corrugated
packaging industry: With virtually all Association members negatively affected by the slow recovery
of manufacturing and food processing sectors, compounded by plant closings and diminished volume
demand among major purchasers of corrugated, the ongoing role of this Association will be to effectively
support the resources of member companies and advocate shared issues on our common behalf.

Founded 1950

CULTUREISEVERYTHING
There are many sports teams that always seem to
be in the thick of the playoff battle every year. The
winners proudly credit their star players, great team
chemistry or a brilliant coach. The losers rant about
the lack of spending to get the stars, certain players
are inept and fire the coach. There is some truth in
the comments but the cause and effect goes much
deeper. You have to look at the root cause, as culture is the uberglue.
To appreciate the impact that culture has on a business look no further than some prominent professional sports franchises. Most importantly, look to
the creators of core values and the behaviour of the
founders and leaders. Much can be learned from
these sports influencers and applied to a business
enterprise.

In a May 2013 Forbes article on Leadership, Ken


Holland, General Manager of the Detroit Red
Wings states Managing a hockey team is just like
managing a business; you need to have a vision and
stick to it. Note 1
Once the vision and core values are set, strategic
execution and patience are required. Holland argues that its all about winning and giving your fans
something to cheer about. In the world of business
the fans are the customers. They buy because they
have a need but want and expect value for money.
Based on consulting with several hockey professionals the article identifies five key themes behind
a winning culture.
Communication/transparency: Build an open
and transparent organization.
Trust: Trust is key between management/players
and between fans/team.
Passion: You need people that are passionate: a
burning drive to succeed.
Stability: High turnover is bad for team spirit,
culture and sustainability.
Mentorship: A culture of caring and cross generational support is critical.
Lets take a closer look at some successful hockey,
football and baseball sports franchises and their
culture and values.
Detroit Red Wings Loyalty & Dont Stop Believing

In 1982, Mike Ilitch, the Little Caesars Pizzas magnate acquired the Detroit Red Wings. Ilitch embedded his culture (as referenced by Holland) and
since 1991 they have been one of the most successful NHL teams, winning the Stanley Cup four

times in six Finals appearances. Their playoff streak


currently stands at 22 in a row (19912013), the
longest current streak of post-season appearances
in all of North American professional sports.
Players love to play for the Red Wings. An example
of loyalty is recently retired Nick Lindstrom who
played 20 years with the Wings. Steve Yzerman
played 22 years and served another 4 years in the
executive office. He is now the general manager of
the Tampa Bay Lightning and the 2014 Canadian
Olympic Team. His right hand man is his former
Detroit GM Ken Holland and coach is the current
Red Wing coach, Mike Babcock.
New England Patriots Humble Leadership and the Team

In 1994 Robert Kraft, purchased the New England


Patriots and in that year they made the playoffs for
the first time since 1986. Under Kraft they have
made the playoffs 15 times in 20 years. The team
has won the AFC East title 13 times and they have
won 3 of their 7 Super Bowl appearances.
Kraft is described as a humble owner and entrusts
his football decisions to his football professionals. In 2000 Kraft hired head coach Bill Belichick.
Belichick is the team architect and Tom Brady is his
consummate field commander. At the core of this
success is the Team. In their first Super Bowl the

players broke from ritual and rather than go into


the stadium one-by-one when announced they all
ran out together. Belichick was quoted as saying
Thats the reason we won, because we played as
a team. Humble and understated are often the
words used to describe Kraft, Belichick and Brady.
New York Yankees Legacy and Winning at all Costs

One of the most successful franchises in professional sports history, the New York Yankees, has
been owned by the Steinbrenner family since the
1970s. The Yanks have won 18 division titles, 40
AL pennants, and 27 World Series championships,
all of which are MLB records.
Most baseball players want to wear the Yankee pinstripes because of the legacy of the organization.
Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Mickey
Mantle and current players Derek Jeter and Mariano Rivera are just some of the star power. And the
Yankees are the perennial payroll leader at around

$200 million annually. Passion and winning describe the departed George Steinbrenner. He fired
his manager Billy Martin on five separate occasions
over 13 years. Martin, equally combative, played
on 4 Yankee World Series teams and managed one
for Steinbrenner.
Toronto Maple Leafs Show Me the Money

2017 will be the 100 year anniversary of the


Toronto Maple Leafs. In their first 50 years they
won the Stanley Cup an impressive 13 times or
26% of chances. Eleven were
won under the ownership of
Conn Smythe and in the later
years his son Stafford and two
partners. Since 1967 the Leafs
have neither been to the finals
nor won the Cup. It is the longest current drought of all the James D. Downham
CEO & President
teams in the NHL.
PAC
Over the past half century
the Leafs have been owned by a bully who ran
three Hall of Fame fan favourites, Horton, Keon
and Sittler out of town; a grocery store magnate
who made it to the semi-finals once; a strikeprone $129 billion Ontario teachers pension fund
(the highest returns of biggest 330 public/private
pension funds in the world) and today a JV between

two telephone cable guy behemoths who are the


fiercest competitors for Canadian media dominance.
Under this brilliant money-first hodgepodge
Forbes 2013 ranked Leafs #1 in the NHL in value at $1.15 billion. Conversely, in ESPNs North
American Ultimate Fan Ranking of 122 professional teams Leafs were at # 119, 122, 120, 121
and 120 over the past five years while the fans pay
20% more on average than the next highest priced
ticket in the league. Its an extraordinary business
model charge 20% more while delivering less
value. The owners get rich while the fans get zilch!
So here are four different cultures and business
models to consider. The loyal Red Wings, team
Patriots, win at all costs Yankees or show me the
money Maple Leafs. The proverbial 1967 Maple
Leaf logo tattooed on my..tells you the players I line up with, but Im yearning for Ilitch or
Kraft to buy the team.

How a local pump manufacturer has blossomed into a major tour de force in

ifelong employees are something of a rarity in the modern workplace, especially in


Canadas much challenged and unsettled
manufacturing sector.
But Iain McColl is more than happy to be bucking the trend in his role as president and chief
executive officer of Hibar Systems Limiteda
remarkably successful Canadian high-tech manufacturing enterprise he joined shortly after graduating from Ryerson University in Toronto with
a bachelor of mechanical engineering technology
degree back in 1985.
Its a career decision the soft-spoken native of
Toronto has never had a reason to regret, as he told
Canadian Packaging during a recent visit to the
companys global headquarters and manufacturing
operations in Richmond Hill, Ont.except maybe
for the fact that so many young Canadians these days
are missing out on the solid career opportunities that
Canadian manufacturing still offers them in spades.
Sadly, McColl laments, they more often than not
go begging due to the countrys chronic skilled
trades deficit that often drives domestic manufacturers like Hibar to look to recent immigrants or

offshore for the qualified people they need to fill


some very well-paid, highly rewarding positions
that belie the popular notion of Canadas allegedly
walking dead manufacturing sector.
In fact, things just keep getting better from year
to year for Hibar Systems, founded in 1974 by
German-born engineer Heinz Barall to manufacture precision dispensing pumps used in industrial
machinery to dispense a multitude of different
liquids inside a broad assortment of containers
from sauces and condiments in the food industry
right through to harsh industrial chemicals and
pharmaceutical formulations.

Record Growth
Nowadays enjoying record annual revenues, the
companys deep-rooted manufacturing prowess
and devotion to product quality and innovation
has steered the privately-owned enterprise through
40 years of consistent global growth that saw it
emerge as the worlds leading manufacturer of battery assembly systems.
Today, Hibar supplies virtually all the best-known
consumer battery brand-owners with leading-edge
battery manufacturing machinery, while successfully diversifying its product portfolio and vastly
expanding its customer base around the world.

With exports accounting for over 95 per cent of


its sales, Hibars formidable manufacturing capabilitieswell-respected across a multitude of key foreign marketsinclude design and manufacture of
advanced automated dispensing systems; sophisticated
high-speed assembly machines; custom-engineered
packaging machines and turnkey lines; and other
high-performance automated production systems.
With a well-established and balanced customer
base comprising some of the worlds leading brand
names in the global food-and-beverage, personal
care, cosmetic, other CPG (consumer packaged
goods), pharmaceutical and technical industries,
Hibar today employs about 140 people at its
manufacturing facilities just north of Toronto in
Richmond Hills Beaver Creek Business Park,
which the company built starting in 1982 to
accommodate robust business growth.
Adding up to 130,000 square feet of production space on a company-owned 6.3-acre site,
with approximately 1.9 acres available to meet any
future expansion requirements as necessary, Hibar
currently operates a steady one-shift, 5.5-days-perweek schedule to manufacture its diverse product
range using some of the most advanced manufacturing technologies around.
This includes 22 state-of-the-art CNC (computer
numerical control) turning, milling and machining
centers running f lat-out in impeccably tidy, cleanroom-like surroundings staffed by a dedicated, loyal
and high-skill workforce with an average tenure of
about 14 and a half years, according to McColl.

There is a very high degree of pride in the work


they do, as well as the fact that many of them really
love the content of their work, McColl states.
We are getting involved with all kinds of stateof-the-art projects and a lot of development of
brand new technology that does not yet existits
all very exciting.
But as head of the senior management team of
company co-owners formed after Hibar founder
Barall passed away in 2006, McColl says one of the
roadblocks to growth in manufacturing companies
like Hibar is the shortage of skilled trades labor,
calling the skillset mismatch a very weak point in
Ontario manufacturing.

Sound Advice
As a participant in recent economic consultations with prime minister Stephen Harper, which
included executives from several other local manufacturers, the subject of Canadas lagging technology skills was addressed as a key hot-button issue,
says McColl, adding he is often frustrated by the
inability to find good home-grown skilled labor.
For a variety of reasons, our apprenticeship
programs are not really that effective, he states.
Despite both provincial and federal levels of government offering incentives to students to go into
these programs, and incentives for businesses to
hire apprentices and graduates of these programs,
there appears to be a real social stigmaoften originating with parentsmaking students shy away
from skilled trades like electricians, machinists,

Hibar makes extensive use of Festos pneumatic actuators and other automation devices in the assembly of the companys automated liquid dispensing systems and filling lines.

CNC operators, toolmakers and so on.
This sort of home-grown skilled labor is very hard
for us to find, especially here in Ontario, McColl
asserts. It got so difficult at one point several years
ago that Hibar actually went to Germany in order to
recruit skilled tradesmen directly from there..
Unfortunately, he sighs, the situation has hardly
improved in the years since.
There is a definite vacuum out there, he says,
pointing out that in recent years Hibar has become
solely reliant on new Canadians that have been
trained abroad to fill the shortage of home-grown
skilled labor.
We have a posting with several colleges right
now to hire some recent grads from their apprenticeship programs, McColl says.
In some cases in the past we have posted available positions and received zero response.
When discussing the problem with the Harper government, it was suggested to consider more and better
incentives to convince students to pursue a career in
skilled trades, complemented by a proactive education campaign to show that these careers do not fit
the stereotype of low-paid, backbreaking labor.
Todays reality is that motivated, skilled and
experienced trades persons can make a very comfortable living in rewarding, high-tech careers,
McColl states, but I dont think the message is
really getting out there.
While McColl acknowledges that the prolonged
erosion of Ontarios manufacturing baseparticularly during the recent Great Recession yearsmay
be fueling the problem by creating a perception of
a dead end industry, he insists that its nowhere
near the point where available talent pool exceeds
the existing demand for skilled trades by local
manufacturers who have weathered the economic
turmoil and are trying to regain lost ground.
I really do not think were quite there yet, he
asserts. Manufacturing in Canada has definitely
not declined to a point where there are no jobs,
and most other local manufacturers I talk to also
tell me similar stories of being unable to find young
people with the skills they need, so this vacuum is
still a serious problem that needs addressing.
When it comes to subsidized technical education, we really must look to the European models:
countries like Germany have really got it down pat
compared to us.

Sales and marketing manager Greg Bartle takes a close-up look at one of the finished Hibar metering pumps.

Like all Canadian exporters, Hibar had to contend for some time with a resurgent high Canadian
dollar that tempered its ability to compete globally,
especially in the nearby U.S. markets.
Having the Canadian dollar at higher levels
than the U.S. currency a few years ago was certainly challenging: it was a very difficult period for
exporters, McColl recalls.

Dollar Woes
While we do take financial measures to mitigate
the effects of a high dollar, buying futures when
we secure a big contract to minimize our risks, he
reveals, it definitely makes it much easier for us
to be competitive with a lower Canadian dollar
especially when it comes to our standard-issue
types of products.
We have also been pretty fortunate in having a
very diverse customer base servicing a variety of
different industries.
We are not dependent on any single industry
such as the automotive sector, with its up-anddown cycles, and this has enabled us to weather
the worst of the economic storm, McColl says.
And being quite diverse geographicallysup-

plying our products to Asia and South America, in


addition to our American cousinshas also helped
us to overcome the economic doldrums.
With China quickly becoming one of Hibars most
lucrative marketsaccounting for nearly half of its
global revenues last yearHibar also has to deal
with competing against low-priced knockoff products, which McColl says is a commonplace problem
for many Canadian manufacturing exporters.
Protection of intellectual property is a major
problem; I hear about it in manufacturing circles
time and time again, McColl states. We address
it to some extent by having taken out patent protection in China for some of our technologies, but
even then you are quite limited in what you can
do, and it can be a lengthy and expensive process.
Our mantra is that by far, the best solution for
this problem is to continue to innovate, McColl
proclaims. So whatever product we may be selling in China today we will continue to keep on
improving it and making it better and more costeffective in order to maintain our market share.
So even if theres the odd copy of our product
out there, by the time its out in the market in a
major way, its already old technology or obsolete,
McColl reasons.
Its all about staying ahead of the competition,
even if it happens to be shady competition.
Adds Hibar vice-president Steve Mark: We are a
very lean and versatile company that is able to react
very quickly to the customers requirements for
their machines, which is really one of our forts.
Moreover, being vertically integrated, with all
our engineering functions kept in-house along
with all the parts manufacturing, machine controls, testing, etc., gives us complete control over
all the variables in the process, Mark explains.
This has enabled us to develop good relationships with our customers, particularly the contract
packagers who may have started out just buying
pumps from us, and then would come back with
new special packaging requirements that would
prompt us to grow our capabilities to a point where
we would build complete turnkey packaging lines
for some of our clients.
In a similar vein, these extensive capabilities
enabled Hibar to evolve into the worlds preeminent manufacturer of battery assembly lines,
including the most common alkaline, lithium

wide, McColl reveals, which represents a significant multiyear, multiple-machine project for us.
We have really been blessed because we have
some good solid niche markets where we dont
have a whole lot of serious competition, and I think
its difficult for many other Canadian companies to
find that niche, says McColl, quickly giving the
companys original founder Barall the lions share
of credit for the astute business sense and foresight
that made it all possible.
Heinz Barall was a true entrepreneur in the
full sense of the word, McColl states. He was
the hardest-working gentleman I have ever met,
working seven days a week to build this company.
This company was really his life: he put just
about everything he had into it, McColl adds.
He was a true mentor to me and the rest of the
management team here, notes McColl, and I feel
privileged to have worked side-by-side with him
for so many years in all my capacities, from beginning as a mechanical designer and eventually as
vice-president and general manager.
While Hibars strong export growth has gained
the company some recognition in government circles recently, McColl concedes that Hibar may have
some unfinished business left on its own home turf.
Because we have been so busy in the export markets, we simply havent had the opportunity to focus
on the local market, McColl allows, but thats just

the way it has been for us so far.


If you consider the battery market, for instance,
there is not one single alkaline battery manufacturer
in Canada: theyre all in the U.S., China or Europe.
For all of the companys breakthroughs and conquests in the global battery markets, the packaging
sector remains an extremely important market to
Hibar, according to McColl.

Full Package
We continue to sell our pumps to many different
packaging machine manufacturers, as well as many
leading co-packers who use them to fill the liquids
they need to fill for their clients, be it in bottles or
sachet bags or whatever other containers.
For anyone ever wondering how the butter gets

example, I can almost guarantee that it is done using

healthy packaging industry is absolutely important
to Hibars healthy bottom line over the long term.
Thats why we actively exhibit at the major
PACK EXPO shows in the U.S., and why were

Recently, Hibar hosted a visit from Tony
Clement, president of the federal governments
Treasury Board, who announced additional funding towards improving Hibars systems infrastructure critical to the companys manufacturing
processes.
Says McColl: I feel that Hibar is very wellprepared for the future, and based on some of the
projects and manufacturing improvements that we
are working on today we have some tremendous
potential to unleash over the next few years.
Our immediate problem is not going to be running out of work, he sums up, its more likely
to be a problem of resource shortages to get that
work done.
Hopefully in the near future well be able to get
it done with more home-grown Canadian talent
than we have been able to up to now.

its customer base to this day.


While Cardiff harbors no regrets about turning his
back on the banking industry as his main source of
income, he relates that it has not been a completely
smooth ride for a company that commenced commercial production of feta cheese converted from
sheeps milk with only three full-time employees at a small, 5,000-square-foot facility in nearby
Tavistock, about 20 kilometers east of St. Marys.

Fresh Start

About 80 per cent of all the sheeps milk in


Canada comes through our doors, says the companys founder and president Stew Cardiff, a onetime banking executive who returned to his family
farming roots in 2002 to start up a highly successful dairy enterprise to serve a growing and promising niche market for specialty dairy products.
I was actually a full-time banker and part-time
sheep farmer at the time, Cardiff told Canadian
Packaging on a recent visit to the St. Marys facility,
which specializes in turning sheep, goat and cow

milk into Greek-style yogurts, along with a tasty


assortment of feta and ricotta cheese blends.
But being a sheep farmer certainly is not a
digression for me, says Cardiff, acknowledging
the odd-mix nature of his chosen career pathways.
Ive been on a farm ever since I was a kid, he
points out.
So its an industry and business that I am certainly familiar with, says Cardiff, citing the companys hard-earned reputation for high product
quality and craftsmanship that continues to expand

While the companys revenues grew every year


since startup, the business literally went up in
f lames in 2008, when a devastating fire laid waste
to the Tavistock plant.
As painful as the setback was, Cardiff decided to
use it as an opportunity to start afreshnamely by
building a brand new 13,000 square foot plant in
St. Marys.
I did this while renting space at night in other
cheese plants in order to meet orders and keep customers, as I was vertically integrated owning the
sheep farms, and had no other market for the sheeps
milk, so I had to keep processing, reveals Cardiff.
I lived on four hours of sleep per day for
months, he adds, but the interesting part was
that from ground break to completion it was only
seven months to the day of the fire.
Luckily for me and my sleep patterns, it was a
fast build.
With the new facility, Cardiff and Shepherd
Gourmet Dairy gained a larger slice of the marketplace, and soon plans were underway to again
increase the facilitys size.
In 2012, the company completed a $4.3 million
expansion project, more than tripling the size of the
factory to its current 42,000 square foot imprint.
Along with the much-needed extra production space, we also purchased new production
line equipment, recalls Cardiff, who reluctantly
decided to sell his own f lock of sheep last spring to
focus on the dairy manufacturing business.
It was getting to that point where very soon I
wouldnt be able to give the animals the proper
attention they would require, Cardiff explains.
So before that could happen, I had to give up
being a sheep farmer, but luckily I still get to work
in an industry that caters to them.

FOOD SAFETY

To ensure ongoing compliance with its GFSI certification,


Shepherd Gourmet Dairy employs a Loma Systems IQ3
metal detection system to make sure no hidden impurities can compomise its high-quality dairy products.

Remaining true to his rural Ontario roots,


Cardiff makes it a point to use only the sheep milk
that he can source from local farmers located within a one-hour radius
from the St. Marys processing plant.
Says Cardiff: Quite frankly, a large
quantity of the feta cheese that people
previously purchased and consumed
here in Canada was actually made
from powdered milk.
Our goal is to continue eating into
the imported cheese market, says
Cardiff, citing the steady sales growth
of the companys own self-named flagship brand of feta cheese blend, as well
as the Krinos range of Greek-style
yogurts and cheese blends it co-packs
for Krinos Foods, North Americas
largest importer, distributor and manufacturer of Greek specialty foods.
A new product Shepherd Gourmet
Dairy produces for Krinos is the O%
All Natural Greek Yogurt made from
cow milk with five tasty f lavors,
including: Original, Vanilla, Blueberry,
Strawberry, and Maple.

that because this naturally homogenized milk is


made up of smaller fat globules, it is easier on the
body to digest than the traditional cow milk.
Offering a rich, yet delicate f lavor with a tasty
tang, the product is also packed with highly beneficial probiotic cultures that help strengthen the
immune system, he adds.
The Krinos Sheeps Milk Yogurt is glutenfree, rich in magnesium, phosphorus, potassium,
zinc and Vitamin Bincluding B12with almost
twice the amount of calcium and protein in it
compared to cows milk, explains Cardiff.
For all that, Cardiff quickly points out that simply having a tasty and healthy product counts for
nothing if it does not arrive to customers and consumers in the best and safest condition that modern
technologies allowboth on the processing and
packaging side.
To that end, the Shepherd plant underwent an

extensive and vigorous process in 2012 to achieve


the vaunted Global Standard for Food Safety
Initiative (GFSI) certification of the British
Retail Consortium (BRC), which is increasingly considered to be the de facto benchmark food
safety threshold requirement worldwide.
Now being implemented by food manufacturers
and their suppliers across North and South America,
Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, the Far East
and Australasia, The GFSI certification from the
BRC is an international mark of excellence for any
company that holds one, Cardiff states.
Even though we already had an excellent safety
standards program in place, the BRC showed us
that we could be even better, says Cardiff, calling it a formal validation of the companys wholehearted commitment to top-level food safety and
qualityfrom upper management right down to
the shop-f loor.

Zero Tolerance
Just like it says on the packaging,
this yogurt is all natural and has
zero powders added, Cardiff asserts.
You can immediately taste the quality in our yogurts.
Nowadays producing a total of 35
different SKUs (stock-keeping units),
Shepherd Gourmet Dairy has quickly
established itself as a model local
corporate citizen in and around St.
Marys, Cardiff relates.
We have added 15 more employees
to our staff in the past year-and-ahalf, he says. It may sound silly, but
thats a 40-percent increase, which is
huge for us.
Having 15 more full-time jobs in
St. Marys really does help keep our
town healthy and viable when you
consider the economic trickle-down
effect, says Cardiff, citing product
authenticity, unique taste profiles,
good-for-you health benefits, and
uncompromising product safety as
key pillars underpinning his companys successful track record.

FOOD SAFETY
When it comes to food safety, talk is cheap, and
achieving all of the food safety designations we
have shows just how serious we are about our business, Cardiff proclaims.
A big part of implementing and maintaining
these standards is ensuring that the companys key
supply chain partners also follow the rigid safety
protocols at their operations, which is what the
dairys corrugated packaging supplier Norampac
has done in f lying colors at the companys nearby
St. Marys Division plant.
Operating as a wholly-owned subsidiary of
Canadas leading forest products group Cascades
Inc., Norampac has spent millions in recent years
to upgrade and modernize what is now a state-ofthe-art, 275,000-square-foot facility that converts
100 million square feet per month of single wallequivalent corrugated paperboard into shipping
boxes and carriers for a diverse range of CPG (consumer packaged goods) manufacturing industries,
including the retail dairy sector.
Along with equipping the facility with many bestof-breed converting and boxmaking technologies,
Norampac also made the St. Marys plant become
the very first corrugated supplier in Canada to earn
the advanced SQF2000 Level 2 certification under
the GFSItaking its existing HACCP (Hazard
Analysis Critical Control Points)- accreditation to a
whole new level.
Because we store our products in corrugated
cartons, we certainly believe that it is very important for Norampac to follow such a stringent food
safety protocol as the SQF2000 Level 2, says
Cardiff, relating that for many food producers,
corrugated packaging can often be a frustrating

Norampac St. Marys is the first Canadian corrugator to obtain the stringent SQF2000 Level 2 certifictation, providing
an additional level of food safety assurance for the corrugated cartons manufactured for Shepherd Gourmet Dairy.

source of dust, mold and other unwanted particulates or contaminants.


Having the SQF2000 Level 2 certification essentially provides a firm assurance that all such issues
have been addressed at the Norampac facility well
before Shepherd receives its regular shipment of
pre-printed corrugated boxes to be filled with
product and distributed to customers, who ultimately receive their retail-ready products in impeccably clean condition.
I also appreciate the fact that Norampac has an
open-door policy in regards to inspecting their
facilities, and their commitment to the various
safety programs they have implemented provides

us with a great measure of comfort in knowing


that our products will always arrive safely to our
client destinations, Cardiff states.
Our customers told us they wanted us to provide them with a globally-recognized program
certification, and we always listen to our customers, asserts Jim Burlingham, sales manager for the
Norampac St. Marys operation.

Lead Role
According to the plants general manager Steve
Cousins, Norampac has always been a proactive
company when it comes to global standards for
both manufacturing excellence and safety, citing
the fact that Norampac was the Canadian pilot
launch company in 1992 for AIB (American
Institute of Baking)s entrance to Canada for
international certification for global food safety
supply chains.
Obtaining the SQF certification at its highest level provides a level playing field at a higher
level, he notes.
Already being IS0 9001- and IS0 14000-certified, along with the HACCP, made us more than
ready and prepared for the task of getting our
SFQ2000 Level 2 certification, Cousins relates.
It actually wasnt a long, drawn-out process, says
Cousins, recalling that one of the biggest challenges to achieving the certification related to modifying the behavior and work practices of the plants
employees in terms of personal hygiene, sanitation,
and regular deep-cleaning of the entire facility.
They were already doing a great job before we
went for the SQF, he recalls, but we learned that
we needed to take things to another leveland so
we did, he says.
Its something that Norampac customers like
Shepherd Gourmet Dairy really appreciate,
Cousins asserts.
Having such a stringent certification in place is
especially impressive considering the vast assortment of high-performance production machinery
employed throughout the plant f loor to produce topquality product, which includes the state-of-the-art,
37.5-inch, four-color EVOL high-speed printing
pressmanufactured in Japan by Mitsubishi
purchased in 2011 for about $5.5 million.

features, including inline die-cutting, The EVOL


is the highest speed press of its type in the world,
Cousins says, proudly pointing out that the St. Marys
plant was the first corrugated facility anywhere in
Canada to install this leading-edge technology.
This is the machine that many of our competitors in the mainstream markets of Los Angeles
and Chicago have at their plants, says Cousins,
explaining that the four-color printing process incorporated into the EVOL press enables
Norampac to offer its customers superior print
quality along with sophisticated 3D die-cutting
capabilitiesallowing for much greater variety of
box openings and shapes.
In addition to the exceptional high-speed performance and lighting-quick changeovers, Cousins
says he is equally impressed with EVOLs ease-ofmaintenance and reliability that ensure maximum
productive machine uptime.
Although the Mitsubishi EVOL is often
described as being a plug-and-play technology,
even that portrayal doesnt do it sufficient justice,
states Cousins.
We installed the press on July 15, 2011, and
we were literally shipping products later that very
same day, he extols.
It has really exceeded all our expectations, says

Cousins, highlighting the machines operator-friendly


features such as the OT-12 touchscreen interface,
manufactured by Valco Melton, and the camerabased vision inspection system from the Vancouver,
B.C.-based ClearVision Technologiesa recent
addition to the Valco Melton familyto ensure that
all adhesive application is performed within the operator-programmed parameters.
After the corrugated f lats are completed and
stacked by the EVOL, they pass through a Mosca
Strapping Systems machine featuring a Siemens
Simatic Touch control panel that automatically
lets the operator know if the bundles need to be
straightened out or otherwise adjusted before the
strapping is applied.
Although Burlingham says that the Norampac
plant was already a cost-efficient producer even
before the most recent capital upgrades, the arrival
of new production equipment and completion of
several machine refurbishments will not only help
Norampac keep up with the competition, but
actually lead the way well into the future.
Some of these recent capital improvements
include:
installation of a BHS corrugator;
startup of two high-efficiency steam plants and a
new scrap system;
installation of a refurbished 37.5-inch, fourcolor Martin 924 f lexographic press with inline
die-cutting;
installation of one refurbished 24-inch, twocolor Saturn Mini f lexographic press;
startup of a second end-of-line shipping line.
Although not part of the new capital investment,
Burlingham says Norampac still gets great performance from three Ward rotary diecutters and
an existing 50-inch, two-color Langston f lexographic press.
Combined with the boxmakers exceptional customer service record, Cardiff says he is proud to
have a supply chain partner of Norampacs size,
stature and prestige among his companys key
packaging suppliersespecially at a time when
Shepherd is focusing on extending its geographic
market reach.
As we have gotten bigger, we began to rely more
on specialized food distributors to get our products into the major centers of Toronto, Montreal
and Vancouver, he says, and its good to know

that our products will make it to our customers in


prime condition wherever they are.
While reaching big new markets is an exciting
development for the company, Cardiff is adamant that
it will not come at the expense of the smaller grocers
and specialty shops here and around St. Marys.
As Cardiff points out, Soon after reopening our
business in St. Marys, we opened up our own tiny
retail shopconsisting of a small cooler located
inside the main doors of our officewhere locals
can come in and easily obtain any of our products
under the Shepherd brand or the Krinos brand.
Its just a small gesture of thanks to the community for helping support us and continuing to
support us, sums up Cardiff.
I look at it as a service to the community I live
in, he concludes. Our employees also live in the
community, and they and their friends and neighbors all want to be able to buy the great products
that we produce locally right where its made.
And since success hasnt spoiled him yet, Cardiff
says that during 2014, the company will be
investing another $2.3 million in equipment to
continually innovate for our customers.

At Unisource,
we believe packaging automation goes
beyond machines and materials.
Thats efficiency reimagined.
Unisource has always had a strong commitment to automation, but our approach has evolved over the
years. As markets have become more global and competition more fierce, every industry has felt the
pressure to be more efficient. To help our customers not only increase efficiency but also reimagine it,
Unisource developed a collaborative, solutions-based model with a holistic approach to automation.
Two key components of this model that our customers have found particularly valuable are Unisources
ability to look at the big picture and our commitment to standards. Instead of simply recommending the
fastest machine or the best materials, our team focuses on optimizing the whole packaging process from
beginning to end with the right equipment, intuitive operations, and complete communication.
In addition to improving processes, Unisource collaborates with each customer to develop a piece that is
frequently missing from production and packaging lines: standards that set the benchmark for measuring
performance. Standards start with implementing the appropriate automation solutions and end with
performance metrics that are measurable and repeatable. After putting these standards in place, we help
ensure they are met by providing world-class service and training so each company has expert resources
at their fingertips.
Our pursuit of efficiency reimagined runs through every aspect of our business. From developing
low-energy and intuitive technology to offering more cost-effective materials that increase productivity,
Unisource is dedicated to helping our customers improve their bottom line and become efficient industry
leaders in every sense of the word.

Its our vision, our goal, and above all else, our commitment.

AUTOMATIC RESPONSE

Industry insiders weigh in on urgent need for more automation investment to shore up
Canadas bruised and battered manufacturing base
BY GEORGE GUIDONI, EDITOR
PHOTOS BY COLE GARSIDE

f the science of today really is the technology of


tomorrow, as world-renowned physicist and socalled father of the hydrogen bomb Edward
Teller once famously asserted, tomorrow couldnt
come soon enough for many Canadian manufacturing industries looking to get any kind of a technological competitive edge to stay afloat in the cutthroat
global economy, which has been mercilessly harsh to
the countrys manufacturing sector so far this decade.
With dramatically high-profile plant closures
and mass layoffs at venerable food manufacturing stalwarts like Heinz Canada and Kelloggs
Canada seeming only to accelerate the steady and
prolonged erosion of Canadas once-robust manufacturing landscapeespecially in the presumably

recession-proof food-processing sectorthe very


notion that the countrys manufacturers can still
hold their own in the new world economic order
by boosting their productivity through better and
wider use of industrial automation technologies
has become a highly debatable point.
So naturally, there was no shortage of opinion
on the subject when Canadian Packaging invited
several inf luential industry insiders several weeks
ago to the Toronto headquarters of the magazines
parent company Business Information Group
(BIG) for a frank exchange of views on just how
much life and fight our domestic CPG (consumer
packaged goods) industry still has in it, just as our
key trading partner south of the border is finally
emerging from its post-Great Recession fog.
Just enough to save itself from outright irreversible drift into obsolesce, according to the common
consensus emerging from the lively half-day discussion involving representatives from prominent food
industry, automation and packaging machinery suppliers, and business academia taking part in the magazines second Automate Now Roundtable forum.
But only if it does many things right in terms of
getting maximum productivity payback from the
new-generation industrial automation technologies in which it cannot afford to invest in, they
pointedly agreed.

I dont believe in just bringing people in


off the street and making them buttonpushers. If we just put in a robot with a
button-pusher, were no further ahead.

As Bill Gates, no introduction required, so perceptively observed: The first rule of any technology used in business is that automation applied to
an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency.
The second is that automation applied to an
inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency.
Given the billions of dollars spent by Canadian
manufacturers to improve their competitiveness
since the beginning of the 21st Century, a real
solid return on all that investmentat least in
terms of healthy employment levels and as share
of the countrys GDP (Gross Domestic Product)
outputstill remains frustratingly elusive, most
roundtable participants concurred.

Due Payback
The erosion of the manufacturing in Canada has
certainly been clearly visible recently, and I dont
think there is any doubt the currency exchange in
the past four or five years since the economic turmoil of 2008 has contributed to that, said Mark
Liddell, principal of leading Ontario-based packaging machinery distributor and systems integrator
PLAN Automation.
Fortunately were now seeing a reset of the
odometer on the currency, and if we continue to
further see downward pressure on the Canadian
dollar, some of the robust growth that we saw in
the early part of the 21st Century will return to
the primary consumer packaged goods and food
manufacturing industries here in Ontario, and
hopefully all across Canada.
Losses like Heinz are huge, but even with the
occasional dark clouds on the horizon, I dont
think its a historic trend, said Liddell, adding that
his company is already engaged in talks regarding possible systems integration projects down the

road with some potential new owners said to be


contemplating purchasing some of the mothballed
Heinz plants production machinery and other useful capital assets.

There is some glimmer of optimism about the


Leamington plants future, said Liddell, pointing
out while some globally-operating multinationals have decided to scale back their manufacturing in Canada, some of their competitors are doing
the oppositeciting a massive infusion of capital
investment at the Procter & Gamble (P&G)
manufacturing operations in Belleville, Ont.
Procter & Gamble has invested about $600 million to expand its manufacturing facility there,

Liddell pointed out, while Maple Leaf Foods is


building a new, multimillion-dollar greenfield
meat-processing facility in Hamilton that will
house world-class, state-of-the-art automation
capabilities for the packaging of food products.
So on the balance, both multinationals and the
smaller mid-sized, privately-held companies are
still driving growth both in employment and the
incorporation of automation technologies, said
Liddell, citing continuous double-digit business
growth for PLAN Automation since the company
was founded four years ago.
Its a matter of developing relevancy with
manufacturers: both in terms of the manufacturers
we represent and the return that they potentially
get by making them more efficient through automation, Liddell stated.
While its safe to say that 2014 is probably going
to be a relatively slow-growth year for most manufacturing, the projections we hear for 2015, 2016
and 2017, based on the surveys and inquiries that we
made, are looking extremely robust, he enthused.

AUTOMATE NOW
At the end of the day, it is about
understanding where companies need
to go to be competitive on a global basis
in terms of lowest-cost producerand
thats where automation comes in.

Jack Cerny,
Vice-President of Product Management for Packaging,
Unisource Worldwide Inc.

I think we are set for a rebound, especially if we


can get the Canadian dollar to stay in that US90cent sweet-spot range.
Brian Hallick, vice-president of operations at the
Toronto-based croutons and stuffing mixes producer MeMeMe Inc., said his relatively small business has actually more than doubled its staff levels
during the past year in order to keep up with volume growth, which is notably being fueled in part
by the companys success in breaking into China
and other lucrative export markets.
According to Hallick, the older model of having
multinational producers operating massive-sized
manufacturing operations in Canada with North
American or global production mandates is simply
no longer as attractive or feasible for some foreign
brand-owners in the new global economy as it may
have been in the past.
If you are not the lowest-cost producer, you
are at riskespecially if youre one of the larger
plants that are not Canadian-owned but operate as
Canadian divisions, Hallick asserted.

Talk is Cheap
When you are a division of a large U.S.-held
company, you have to be the cheapest producer,
or youre not on the map anymore, said Hallick,
adding the Heinz plant closure is just one of the
more painful manifestations of the emerging new
normal reality for Canadian manufacturers.
I dont think we should be looking at this reset
as necessarily losing everything, he said, but
rather as transitioning from huge 700-employee
operations to much leaner ones.
Thats the sort of companies the Canadian market needsfast, f lexible and value-added, Hallick
stressed.
This sort of transition will naturally necessitate boosting productivity levels through further
deployment of the most leading-edge, automated

manufacturing technologies out in the marketplace,


stressed Luis Garcia, chair of the Craig Richardson
Institute of Food Processing Technology at the
Conestoga College Institute of Technology
and Advanced Learning in Cambridge, Ont.
The most important point here is that the overall productivity levels in Canadian manufacturing
are behind the U.S. productivity levels, and both
are very much behind European productivity levels, Garcia said.
So if a multinational has to choose which of
its global operations to close down, its going to
be here, said Garcia, noting that he has personally witnessed a fair bit of capital investment being
poured into automation technologies by Canadian
food manufacturers as a way to counter the adverse
effects of the high Canadian currency.
If it takes something as dramatic as a high
exchange rate to push companies to invest in more
automation, better innovation and, hopefully,
increased productivity levels, so be it, he said.
But even in spite of the plant closings we have
seen in the last few years, our food-and-beverage
manufacturing industry has grown even during
the recession, Garcia pointed out.
Its not a double-digit growth industry, but its
steady growth, which is forecast to continue into
the next 20 to 30 years.
Unfortunately, we tend to pay more attention to
negative stuff than to the positive factors, but the
food industry is doing quite well overall.
This vibrancy in the food sector is well-ref lected in

the notably growing shipments and sales of robotic


systems to Canadian food producers and distributors, noted Mikael Packalen business unit manager
for robot products & automation for leading robotics suppliers ABB Inc. of Brampton, Ont.
We are seeing tremendous growth opportunities in our robotic automation business in the food
industry, said Packalen, adding that the sales of
ABB-made robots in Canada have increased in
each consecutive year since 2009.
Today we see our sales to food-and-beverage
companies account for a bigger portion of our total
business than we have ever seen, Packalen noted.
It may have something to do with a lot of people
who were laid off from the automotive business
years ago and going into other industrial sectors,
where theyre starting to drive the idea that there
are better and more efficient ways to do things
through automation, he ref lected.
Whatever the reason, we are really seeing a lot
of our growth reaching out into the food-and-beverage business this year.
Added Jack Cerny, vice-president of product
management for packaging for leading packaging
and printing technologies distributor Unisource
Worldwide Inc. of Norcross, Ga.: Not so long
ago, we would sell maybe 700 semi-automatic
stretchwrappers a year, which would account for
about 60 to 65 per cent of our overall automation
equipment program sales.

Bigger Share
Today our automation business now accounts for
about 70 per cent of what we do in Canada, and our
equipment automation group overall was up almost
15 per cent in revenues for 2013 from the year before,
said Cerny, who moved to Canada about three years
ago to help boost Unisources business here.
We see a lot of equipment manufacturers in the
packaging industry expanding more into what we
call an integration mode, whereby instead of just
installing a specific stand-alone automatic or semiautomatic piece of equipment, that equipment
is now being integrated with robotics and other
automation systems.
We are seeing far more integrated kinds of machine
projects than we have ever seen before, Cerny stated.
Automation is absolutely a necessity for us to
create a factory of the future, where you have
fewer and fewer people.

AUTOMATE NOW
Thats a huge driver for automation, said Cerny.
At the end of the day, it is about understanding
where companies need to go to be competitive on
a global basis in terms of lowest-cost producer
and thats where automation comes in.
Despite being a relative newcomer to the
Canadian marketplace, having spent most of his
30-year career at Unisources U.S. operations, it
didnt take Cerny long to identify another one of
the industrys biggest challengesthe shortage of
well-trained technical personnel that knows how
to make the best use of existing and future automation technologies.
Despite the relatively high unemployment in
some parts of Canada, it is becoming harder to get
qualified staffing for manufacturers, he said, and
it will be even more critical as unemployment levels come down some.
Hallick agreed: One of the biggest frustrations
for my plant is that before I even think of purchasing some new technology, I must figure out if I
have someone on staff that can understand what this
technology is supposed to do and how to support it.
To me, one of the biggest things missing is
understanding what the person at the f loor level
needs to be successfulnot just in how the equipment works and what it is supposed to do, but so
that they can be a participant in the problem-solving, Hallick related.

Thinking Minds
I am lucky in that I have hired people that could
think through a problem and solve it on the f loor,
but its that level of expectation on the f loor that
really trips up a lot of great automation projects.
An operator cant just f lip to chapter five, page
123, to find an answer to a problem, he said.
They should be able understand what the equipment is supposed to do and fix the problem right
there and then, but much of the time the only
training I see is specific work instruction telling
you what steps you have to follow if youre operating in a perfect world, Hallick related.
If you have 700 people in your facility, the odds
are pretty good that if you have the engineering
core and the cross-functional figure-it-all-out
team of people who will make things run right.
But its much different for smaller companies,
Hallick said, and that may be part of the reason
why the smaller companies arent implementing as
many automation projects as they could be.
Sadly, there is no instant magic cure for Canadas
technology skills deficit, Conestoga Colleges
Garcia observed.
It is true that Ontario food processors see a
big skill gap that prevents them from finding the
qualified skilled employees to operate and maintain their equipment.
Thats one of the main reasons our [Craig
Richardson] Institute exists: to develop those types
of skilled employees, Garcia said.
But for us, the biggest challenge is not finding
employment or co-op program positions for our
graduatesthat part is easybut rather having
the industry send us their employees for further
skill-training.
I think its going to take some time because this
is not something that has been available to industry
before in terms of formal trainingespecially for
the plant-f loor employeesbecause its not part of
their HR (human resources) structure or part of
their operations budget, stated Garcia.
There clearly needs to be a stronger under-

standing of return-on-investment in training, he


reiterated, instead of seeing it just as an expense.
This is where the governments could prove to
be a handy partner by extending the various funding programs they offer manufacturers to invest in
new technologies to help train their personnel on
using them, agreed the roundtable participants.
In fact, the province of Quebec is already doing
just that, according to Luc Richard, business
development manager for BU & OEM with leading industrial and process control systems group
Schneider Electric.
Working out of the companys Montreal location,
Richard said he sees a lot of merit in the recent
formation of the Quebec Economic Development
Fund, championed by the provincial minister for
industrial policy laine Zakab.
As part of this program, a manufacturer who
buys a new machine can get credits from the government to train its people on that machine,
Richard related.
So if you buy a machine and send one of your
employees for training on that machine for three
weeks, the government will reimburse you for
those three weeks, he explained.
At a certain point we will need to have our governments, federal and regional, to have some kind
of a focused industrial policysomething like they
have in Germanyto help manufacturers make
better-informed decisions on how to make all this
automation successful for them, Richard said.
Be it in Canada, the U.S. or globally, Cerny
agreed, companies have to invest in people for
purposes of talent retention, efficiency, productivity and all those other competitive reasons, because
ultimately it is those people who actually engage
and execute all this automation.

It is critically important for the manufacturing


sector to invest in human capital in order to retain
good talented folks, he added.
It may be expensive, but if you dont invest you
are just going to keep a revolving door.
According to Garcia, In Europe almost everyone hired to work in a food-processing facility has
had some type of formal training, which I think
that has a lot to do with productivity.
Having somebody understand how to think in
terms of continuous improvement is key to keeping an operation running and driving towards better productivity.
The other factor that plays a big role in Europe,
and which we dont see much here, is the much
closer interaction between industry and academia
in applied research, Garcia pointed out.
The larger multinationals that deal with universities here do help fund basic research, but universities are not very quick to respondtypically
being involved in long-term, multiyear projects.
But in countries like The Netherlands, they
have what they call knowledge institutes, which
take basic research from the universities, put it into
applied research, and turn it into a real-life solution.
Its a very practical system, with very quick
turnaround benefits for the industry, but for one
reason or another we are still seeing very little of
that here, he sighed.

People Power
For Mike Estepa, engineering manager at the
Toronto-headquartered dairy products manufacturer Gay Lea Foods Co-operative Limited,
proper skill training is an integral part of constructive employee empowerment to enable f loorlevel employees to contribute positively to the
companys bottom-line results.
Said Estepa: I dont believe in just bringing people
in off the street and making them button-pushers.
We need people that can back up our automation
technologies and work with them to innovate and
grow as a team, he stated.
You really need the people on the f loor to be
able to support the decisions made by the higherups, and for the management to make proper
decisions for the business.
If we just put in a robot with a button-pusher whos
calling outside for help every time there is a technical
problem, then were no further ahead, Estepa said.
Added ABBs Packalen: Everyone thinks that a
robot can do everything and anything, but they cant.
They are wonderful pieces of technologywith
the best meantime between failure of any other piece

AUTOMATE NOW
There is a general consensus among
many medium-sized companies that the
U.S. market is not going to be what it was
even 10 years ago, so they are actively
looking for new markets outside of
North America.
Luis Garcia,
Chair, Craig Richardson Institute of
Food Processing Technology,
Conestoga College Institute of
Technology and Advanced Learning

of automation on the planetbut you have got to


find the right home and the right application for it.
There are some places where robotic automation
wont work, but the technology has reached a point
where it has become more and more f lexible in
terms of being able to handle more frequent turnovers, changeovers, tool changes, etc.
Today you really can have robotics and automated machines working side-by-side with
humans in lots more applications than ever.

Happy Days
Offered MeMeMes Hallick: I think its a fallacy
that a happy employee is a productive employee.
Its actually the other way around: a productive
employee is a happy employee, he stated.
You can have all the [payroll] benefits in the
world, but if the work is terrible, it doesnt matter
what those benefits arepeople will look to go
elsewhere, Hallick reasoned.
If you are running a Santas workshop with 40
people shoulder-to-shoulder on the line, bickering
and complaining, its a bad day for everybody no
matter how many benefits you offer.
Said Hallick: Ive been to some smaller companies that put in automation, with a couple of people
on the f loor, and the whole place runs quiet,
peaceful and smooth, with the people seeming to
be super happy about their work.
This actually happens more often in Canadas
far-f lung food industry than many people think,
concurred Liddell, citing a Saskatchewan-based
coconut oil processor, Bioregional Food And
Science, for whom PLAN Automation did some
key integration work recently, including installation of high-end product inspection systems.
This small company is located 3,000 miles from

the nearest sea port, being based in Saskatoon, and


yet they are the worlds largest processor of organic
coconut oil, Liddell marveled.
They buy about 35 per cent of the global supply
of coconut oil, exporting their products through
Asia, Europe and South America, he extolled.
Globalization has really presented some great
opportunities to Canadian manufacturers, Liddell
asserted, and with the right technologies and processes, there really is no barrier to having more
Canadian success stories.
Garcia agreed: There is a general consensus
among many medium-sized, and even larger-sized
companies, that the U.S. market is not going to be
what it was even 10 years ago, so they are actively
looking for new markets outside of North America.
And there are plenty of markets out there to help
them improve their productivity performance, said
Garcia, reiterating the need for further investment in
skill training not only at academic institutions, but also
as part of ongoing staff development by both product
manufacturers and their automation suppliers.
Brian Rundle, industry sector manager for process,
packaging, printing and converting, Bosch Rexroth
Canada Corp., Burlington, Ont., concurred.
As an automation component supplier, one of
our big things is training on use of our components, precisely so the staff doesnt end up being
merely button-pushers, said Rundle.
Some of the automation technologies today are
too sophisticated for the simple button-pushers, so
a big part of our business as a components supplier
is to provide the effective training for these technologiesboth to the OEMs (original equipment
manufacturers) and their end-user customers.
Said Rundle: It is no secret that many major fastmoving commercial foods producers like Nestl,
P&G and various leading companies in coffee and
bottling industries are as successful as they are precisely because of continuously investing in their
people to boost their productivity performance.
Because the technology is developing at such
rapid pace, Rundle argued, end-users must ensure
that their critical staff gets that training on a continuous basis as well, instead of implemeting it in

sporadic one-off projects.


We are seeing a lot of electrificationwith a lot
more things going from pneumatics to electromechanical operationsand its a big shift, Rundle related.
We are also marrying servomotors with drives
into one product now, which can be placed closer
to the machine with less cabling, less cabinet
spaceall those things that ultimately save money
for the OEMs and consumers.
And well soon be seeing a lot more of washdown-rated servomotors and electronics out there
for food industry applications, said Rundle, pointing out that Bosch Rexroth is also developing new
technology-based tools to help both OEMs and
end-users to make their transitions to new-generation automation products easier and smoother.
The next thing that is coming for us is the use
of smart technologybe it an iPhone, an iPod or
some other type of smart deviceto control your
components and to provide remote machine control, said Rundle.
We are already developing apps for smartphones
to let users look inside the core of our drives to do
self-diagnostics and troubleshooting by phone.
Added Schneider Electrics Richard: Linear
motion is not new, but we dont really use it all that
much in North America, where we moved really
fast from standard automation to robotics.
In North America, it sometimes just seems
easier to just put in a robot that can do anything,
because it has a six or seven axes.
But sometimes, just one or two axes is really
a good fit for liner motion technology, Richard
pointed out.

Growing Up
I think there is a lot of opportunity to grow in
this market in Canada by improving the productivity of the packaging machine already in place
with this technology, rather than robotizing the
whole operation, Richard added.
When you use a servomotor, you also gain a lot
of energy efficiency in the end to go with better
machine performance, he added, and they are
cheaper than robots.
But for all the automation systems options available to Canadian manufacturers, none of them
will amount to anything bigger than the sum of
their parts without an adequately skilled Canadian
workforce, roundtable participants agreed.
As Liddell aptly summed up: Looking at the
barriers to manufacturing growth in Canada specifically, and in North America as a whole, speaks
to a larger societal problem.
Here in North America our universities graduate 50 lawyers for every engineering candidate
that we graduate, an astounding number, whereas
China graduates 50 engineers for every lawyer
they have, he ref lected.
That speaks to a larger issue: What have we got
wrong in the North American model that devalues the professional objectives that dont speak to
immediate wealth generation and greed?
Said Liddell: There has been a lack of leadership
on the government side to recognize that if you are
going to continue to have a healthy manufacturing sector, you have to incentify the studentsthe
next generation thats going to come up and to lead
the charge into the future.
And while I dont pretend know what the answer
is, there are many glowing examples from the rest
of the globe suggesting why we should change our
approach.

Packing flexible bags can be a lot like herding cats.


Squishy... arbitrary placement on conveyors... hard to pick
up and orient... But with Schneider, whether your bags are
big or small... we can automate the process of getting them
cartoned, sealed, palletized and wrapped in one smooth
flexible system. Contact us today for more info.

Continuous carton and
product coding
Domino's A320i ink jet
printer offes a service free
printer plus: (1) The
operator interface is easy
to use-just enter the job
and go on to the next
task. (2) Simplified display
quickly puts the printer in
action. (3)Its printhead
stays clear of residual
ink-you'll see lower ink
costs.
The A420i's increased ink
capability complements
the general range of
i-Tech inks, with a
versatile range of
Specialist and Custom ink
offerings, such as
specialist thermochromic
ink for canning.
The key to the D-Series
flexibility is a smaller
i-Tech scan head,
connected to the laser
tube on a multi-position
mount. The head can be
rotated through 90 degree
steps to allow for many
mounting positions, and
because it is so much
smaller, it can easily fit
where bigger lasers
cannot.
Increased power and
speed, combined with an
optional IP65-rated
version, result in the
D620i laser, that is equal
to the most demanding
applications and
environments. RapidScan
makes our lasers 20%
faster for high-speed
applications than other
scribing lasers.
Domino's i-Tech Ribbon
Drive offers 4 ribbon save
settings including
'Economy Mode' which
allows you to use up to
60% less ribbon per print without affecting print
quality.
Unlike other thermal
transfer coders, the V220i
uses intelligent
Technology to meet all
your general purpose
coding needs while
keeping your costs as low
as possible. Its compact
size allows simple retrofit
into existing brackets.
650m ribbon rolls for long
production runs, with
effective length of up to
1625m when Economy
Mode is used.

package? We have machines that produce all of these packages and more importantly we can help determine
which one is right for you. Plus, you can test any of these packaging machines for yourself at our Reiser Customer
Center. Contact us today and set up a demonstration.

PACKAGING FLOURISHES A SHOPPERS DELIGHT

iscovering innovative new products is a


nice reward for all the
extra stress incurred during the
years busiest shopping season,
and coming across the KISS
MY FACE 2013 Limited Edition bars of soap made
my annual last-minute search for original stocking
stuffers this past pre-Christmas craze a worthwhile
endeavor. Made in Greece from pure olive oil, the
eight-ounce soap barsmarketed here by Kiss My
Face LLC, of Gardiner, N.Y.come in attractive, winter-themed treasure tin packaging decorated with sparkling white and silver snowflakes set
against a light-green background and bold graphics
of ripening olives. The highly
decorative reusable tin contains a 230-gram soap bar
wrapped inside an 80-percent
recycled-content paper overwrap, held together with a festive green ribbon tied around
the middle of the green-andwhite paperbox. These festive packaging flourishes
help make the act of giving someone a bar of soap feel
like a real heartfelt gift with a nice personal touch.

At our household, the holiday season often provides an enjoyable opportunity to try out new varieties of cheese products, with the Long Clawson
Blue Stilton cheese brandproduced in the
English village of Leicestershirehighlighting our home cheese-tasting gatherings with the stinky smell of the
product and the elegant packaging oozing
with quaint, English countryside simplicity. The one 100-gram piece of cheese
comes in a miniature, cream-colored

ceramic potsealed with wax to preserve the


product freshness and aromaand dressed up
with lovely cornf lower blue lettering and classy
font to create a memorable, upscale presentation
that make this brand a crme de la crme item at the
appetizer table or in a gift-basket.

The new Frenchs Flavour Infuser


10-minute marinade from Reckitt
Benckiser Inc. is a great example of
form meeting functionality in a nifty and
thoughtful package design. The singleuse 103-ml tube is outfitted with a narrow
elongated tip that is intended to actually
pierce the meat and dispense the marinade
from the insidethereby saving a whole lot of time
from the traditional marinating process of coating
and soaking the meat from the outside. The tips
plastic overcap not only helps to keep the tip impeccably clean, but also provides a steady base for helping keep the tube in a perfectly upright position
in the cupboard or fridge, with the plastic overcap
keeping it right up to their point of use. Offered in
four tantalizing f lavors, each Frenchs Flavour Infuser
tube packs enough marinade to enhance the f lavor
and texture of three to four pounds of whatever
fresh meat you fancy with minimal fuss or mess.

For as long as I can remember, powdered f lour


always came in square-bottomed upright paper
bags regardless of sizefrom one kilo right up
to 10-kg industrial baking-sized bulk bagsthat
would inevitably leave powdery spills behind
no matter how carefully you handled or stored
them. Hence, its great to see Smucker Foods of
Canada Corp. break out of the old mold with

CHECKOUT SHANNON KAUPP

Drinking plain water may be healthy, but it does get


fairly dull and boring in a hurry. And while there are
many drink mixes and f lavorings out there to make
hydration a more tasty consumer experience, I am
a big fan of the so-called liquid water enhancers
highly-concentrated beverage mixes that change
water into a f lavorful refreshment just by squeezing
out a couple of drops and giving the water a good
shake. With the inherent on-the-go portability of these small containers making them
easy to carry in ones purse, gym bag or
pocket, its no wonder these concentrates
have become such a fast-growing product
category so rapidly. My current personal
favorite is the Crystal Light Liquid Drink
Mix from Kraft Canada Inc., which
is packaged in a sleek, slender 48-ml BNA
(bisphenol A)-free plastic f lip-top container with a
lipped lid for easy opening. Securely shrinkwrapped
with a full-bodied, tamper-evident label sleeve, the
container is nestled in decorative, intricately diecut, 3D paperbox that holds it firmly upright on the
shelf or lets it hang out on retail display hooks via a
peg-hole near the top.
