Polykar plans to build new manufacturing facility in Edmonton, AB

Polykar plans to build new manufacturing facility in Edmonton, AB

News 10.10.2019

Polykar, a leading Canadian manufacturer of flexible packaging including polyethylene film, certified compostable bags, garbage bags as well as food and industrial grade liners, announced in September it has acquired a site to construct a new state-of-the-art plant in Edmonton, Alberta.

This second facility will add significant production capacity (30 million pounds) to all of Polykar’s product lines and expand the company’s reach and expertise to serve the retail, commercial and institutional sectors.

The proposed three-acre site in the Discovery Business Park, on the south side of Edmonton adjacent to the Edmonton International Airport, makes the location ideal to support Polykar’s customer base in Western Canada and the United States. Having a dual plant model will allow the company to offer faster delivery, bolster its production capacity, as well as build and retain manufacturing capability in the region.

“This is an important milestone for Polykar and we look to the future with confidence as we continue to develop innovative and sustainable products,’’ said Amir Karim, President & CEO, Polykar. “We are excited to finalize the plans for our new manufacturing facility in Edmonton in the coming months, and bring ourselves closer to our valued suppliers and customers in Western Canada.”

Polykar has engaged Calgary based FarMor Architecture to design the 50,000 square foot facility.

“Our government is working every day to make Alberta the best place to invest and start a business, and I’m excited to see a new and innovative facility coming to Edmonton,” said Tanya Fir, Minister of Economic Development, Trade and Tourism. “This potential $20 million total investment will not only create dozens of jobs during and after construction, but also keep more of the value added of local polyethylene production in Alberta.”
