Michael Dempster’s career in packaging automation spans 4 decades. In 1971, Michael joined the sales team at Montreal based equipment distributor Major Packaging. Michael quickly established himself as an automation professional and ascended to the position of V.P. Sales until their closure in 1989. His extensive industry knowledge and lengthy list of satisfied customers led to the opening of MD Packaging in late 1989. His dedication to the industry and his reputation for delivering the best automation technology to his customers has attracted many of North Americas leading packaging technology manufacturers to establish their Canadian representation through MD Packaging.

Over the past twenty-eight years Michael has assembled a team of industry professionals in both sales and service that has resulted in MD Packaging becoming one of the largest and most integrated packaging automation organizations in the country. His success has gained him the respect and admiration from peers and competitors alike.

In 2017, Michael decided to pursue a succession plan in order to provide employees and customers with a long term growth strategy. Michael sold the business to two of his long standing Agents – Jaime Alboim & Brett Payne. Jaime assumed the role of CEO and Brett the role of COO. Michael will continue on indefinitely as a crucial member of the sales team.
