Michael Dempster’s career in packaging automation spans four decades. In 1971, Michael joined the sales team at Montreal-based equipment distributor Major Packaging. He quickly established himself as an automation professional and ascended to the position of V.P. Sales until their closure in 1989.

Since then, Michael’s dedication to the industry and reputation have cemented M.D. Packaging as a leader in providing innovative automation solutions to the Canadian market and has led many of North America’s prominent packaging technology manufacturers to establish their Canadian representation through M.D. Packaging.

With this strong foundation, M.D. Packaging has continued to grow and develop a team of industry professionals in sales and service over the past 28 years, becoming one of the most trusted names in the automation and packaging industry in the country.

As an outstanding leader and innovator in his field, in 2017 Michael decided to pursue a succession plan to provide employees and customers with a long-term growth strategy. Michael’s legacy has been continued with Jaime Alboim and Brett Payne, who have embraced their respective roles of CEO and COO wholeheartedly. Their dedication and Michael’s operational guidance have seen the business thrive and grow.
