Our Mission Statement
To be recognized as the leading edge Co-Packaging provider of choice for Food and Drug, Cosmetics, Confectionaries and Household industries through continued improvement of our quality and service process.
WG Pro History
Established in 1993, we began our journey as a co-packer (re-packer) with a single, 55,000 square-foot facility. It was designed for managing reclaimed and returned products for a large pharmaceutical company specializing in foot and skin care.More than 20 years later, from these humble beginnings, WG Pro has evolved into a state-of-the-art operation (with facilities in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) and Calgary) that handles a diverse range of products in many industries across the world.
Growing with the Right Plan
Like many entrepreneurs, Karl Wirtz—WG’s founder and President—wanted to grow his business, but he was cautious of the risks. Through the BDC’s Growth Driver Program, he learned how to plan and execute his most promising growth projects.
Our company has expanded its capabilities to a number of industries and product categories, including:
- Food and Confections
- Health Food
- Vision and Eye Care
We also have expertise in labeling, storage, shipping, import/export, and retail distribution, and are more than capable of handling all aspects of the manufacturing, packaging and distribution process on your behalf.
WG Pro operates three modern facilities with more than 135,000 square feet of space. We upgrade our machines regularly and bring on new equipment as the need arises.
Some of our newest pieces of equipment are a semi-automatic high-speed cartoner, a fully-automatic high-speed cartoner with three ten-head feed scales, a high-speed horizontal flow-wrapper, and a high-speed Shanklin shrink wrapper.
Our warehouses provide ambient room temperature working spaces, as well as refrigerated and frozen environments to handle jobs for cold products and perishables. We are also proud to have a segregated nut-free and peanut-free facility that eliminates any chance of cross-contamination with allergens in our restricted-ingredient products.
On-site Co-Manufacturing and Co-Packaging
Personnel from WG Pro can work in your location to handle projects on-site. Our experienced workers can successfully oversee co-packing and co-manufacturing services in partnership with existing teams at your facility.
We can seamlessly oversee and manage your existing co-packing and co-manufacturing efforts without the need to move operations to outside facilities.
Regional and International Service
While our company is based in Canada, we have helped customers across the globe with successful co-manufacturing and co-packaging projects.
We have worked with customers close enough to be our neighbours, as well as those located in:
- North America
- South America
- The United Kingdom
Our experience with working for international customers means WG Pro can help you with brand distribution in diverse regions.
Through our extensive network in Canada, we are able to introduce products into the market that have little or no previous Canadian exposure.
We’re also skilled at assisting with the export and distribution of products to Asia, Europe, the United States, and South America.
