CMP

Manufacturing Safe Food

When it comes to your food, you want the safest, most hygienic equipment. Charlottetown Metal Products Limited (CMP) in PEI, a division of Food Process Solutions Corporation, has spent 60 years innovating and delivering food processing solutions to manufacturers throughout the world.
In order to process berries, seafood, meat, and vegetables CMP designs, creates, and builds effective machinery, and they do that with the help of skilled trades people. For CMP, that includes women in trades.

History of Success

CMP was founded in PEI in 1958 and, while it’s still headquartered in PEI, the company continues to grow to serve its Blue Chip clients around the world. Today, more than 100 people work from the 42,000 sq ft. plant in Milton, PEI and a 50,000 sq ft. expansion is currently underway. The company uses the most modern technology and software to design, build, and install custom food processing equipment, but it needs people to continue to innovate and build.

“We believe that investing in in-house manufacturing ensures our customers receive the highest quality and best technologies in their freezing and cooling equipment,” says James Gillelan, production manager at CMP. “We’re a global leader in manufacturing turn-key food freezing and cooling equipment, so when we hire, we need the best.

We have over 20 engineers on our team, 100,000 square feet of manufacturing space, and a dedicated installation team to provide unprecedented value, customer service, and hygienic solutions for our clients,” James says.

Opportunity Abounds

This year CMP will be hiring 20 welders due to production demand and are looking for apprentices who are interested in learning the business on the ground. The Office to Advance Women Apprentices is working in partnership to connect qualified tradeswomen for these employment opportunties.
