Nova Scotia-based Farnell Packaging Ltd., which primarily serves as a converter of flexible films and pressure-sensitive labels across North America, marks its 50-year anniversary this September.
The September celebrations are also marked by Farnell recently receiving the Burnside News “Business of the Year” Award, as determined by the Burnside Industrial Park community, which is described as the largest business park north of Boston and east of Montreal – with over 1,500 enterprises and 15,000 employees.
“Take a stroll down any grocery aisle and you will see Farnell’s work,” said David Stanfield, VP of Sales & Marketing at Farnell Packaging, located in Dartmouth. Nearly two-thirds of Farnell’s packaging is used in the food industry with the balance used in markets for textile, tissue, diapers, paper, industrial and promotions.
“The key to our success over the years can be attributed to personalized service enhanced by recognized quality systems, investment in the latest technology and our committed staff,” said Stanfield. “We continually focus on improvement and ways to optimize our value proposition. This serves both our firm and our customers as well.”
In June 2011, the company was recognized as an environmental leader by the Eco-Efficiency Centre at the 12th annual Environmental Excellence in Business Awards in Halifax. Farnell was one of only seven area companies to receive the “leaders of the pack” designation.
