AMHERST – PolyCello has been named one of Canada’s 50 best­man­aged com­pa­nies.

A maker of flex­i­ble packaging prod­ucts, the 50-year-old com­pany em­ploys about 350 and is lo­cated in the Amherst In­dus­trial Park.

The des­ig­na­tion is awarded to Cana­dian com­pa­nies that have im­ple­mented world-class busi­ness prac­tices and cre­ated value in in­no­va­tive ways.

“ The award is recog­ni­tion of our com­pet­i­tive ad­van­tage – the tal­ent, com­mit­ment and de­pend­abil­ity of our peo­ple,” said Stephen Emmerson, pres­i­dent and CEO of PolyCello.

“ To be rec­og­nized as one of Canada’s best man­aged is a sig­nif­i­cant hon­our and one in which we are ex­tremely proud.”

The com­pany’s packaging is found pre­sent­ing and pre­serv­ing food and pa­per prod­ucts in mil­lions of North Amer­i­can house­holds.

“ We be­lieve that there are three vi­tal build­ing blocks to sus­tain­able growth: strat­egy, ca­pa­bil­ity, and com­mit­ment, said John Hughes, a spokesman for Deloitte, a na­tional spon­sor of the Best Man­aged pro­gram.

“PolyCello has demon­strated it is a model of suc­cess in all three ar­eas and is duly awarded one of Canada’s best-man­aged.”

Win­ners of the Canada’s 50 best-man­aged com­pa­nies award, along with re­qual­i­fied and platinum club mem­bers, will be hon­oured at a Feb. 9 gala in Toronto.

“It’s re­ally a team ef­fort,” said PolyCello com­mu­ni­ca­tions and pro­mo­tions co-or­di­na­tor Sarah Cooke.

“ This isn’t a man­age­ment award or an in­di­vid­ual award. We work re­ally well as a team and this is a col­lec­tive ac­knowl­edge­ment of what a great team we are.”
