The WP Innova Story

WP Innova’s heritage is rooted in family. The Cunningham family established our mother company, Western Plastics, 40 years ago in Galway, Ireland. As family members moved to North America, they set up independent businesses in Georgia and California, as well as our own location founded in 1998 in Mississauga, Ontario by Bridget Cunningham-Clarke.

Our company started with 3 employees. In 20+ years we have grown to a diverse workforce of more than 60 employees who share our family values, work ethic and spirit of innovation. We have customers from coast to coast, warehouse and logistics operations in Vancouver and 80,000 square feet of dedicated manufacturing and warehouse space here in Mississauga, Ontario.

WP Innova and other Western Plastics companies operate in 7 locations including California, Florida, Georgia, British Columbia, Ontario, Ireland and Holland. Our dedication to think differently and to reinvent, uncover and solve customer problems through materials science is unique in the packaging sector. We are passionate, incredibly inquisitive and push boundaries every day. Our practices are honest and trustworthy, which is something that has won us loyal customers. Our people deliver on promises and we stand behind our products 100%.

Innovation at work – precisionrapXL

Problem:

A grocery retail chain was experiencing higher levels of damaged product due to poor load containment; the result of inconsistent and poor manual pallet wrapping technique.

Solution:

We introduced our client to the precisionrapXL hand wrapping system.

Result:

A huge cut in damages due to load containment and improper wrapping technique; more consistency and quality across all warehouse operators.
