Polykar, an innovative, world-class manufacturer of sustainable packaging solutions, officially broke ground for a new 50,000 square-foot state-of-the-art plant in Edmonton, Alberta.

The construction of this facility is phase one of what will become a $40 million investment to create an industry-leading centre of excellence for the development and commercialization of flexible and compostable packaging. Polykar, which was recently named one of Canada’s Best Managed Companies by Deloitte, will be providing the first large-scale investment within the Discovery Business Park, South Edmonton’s newest premier industrial subdivision developed by Remington & QuadReal.

“We selected Edmonton and Alberta as the ideal location for our second Canadian plant for its dynamism, its openness to the manufacturing sector, and most importantly, because of its highly qualified, skilled and diverse labour force,” explained Amir Karim, President and CEO of Polykar. “We are excited about this next chapter of the Polykar story and we are delighted to become an active member of the province’s business community.”

Expected to be fully operational by the Spring of 2022, Polykar will also incorporate a cutting-edge recycling facility, positioning the company to actively participate in Alberta’s efforts to divert plastic waste from landfills. This will allow Polykar to recycle and repurpose those materials, contributing to the province’s stated goal of creating a circular plastics economy.

The new plant will employ a total of 70 employees within the first two years of operation. With the opening of its temporary warehouse in Edmonton, Polykar has already started the roll-out of its commercial activities to service its Western customers.
