In 1966, Community Living Mississauga opened the Creditvale Adult Training Centre in an unused school on Eglinton Avenue.
The goal was to present a sheltered environment where individuals who have an intellectual disability could “work.
Over the years, the Training Centre took the form of several different businesses…ARC Industries, Mississauga Packaging Systems, then Mississauga Packaging and Assembly.
With the creation of Superior Packaging earlier this year, the program evolved from the sheltered workshop to a viable business.
A true partnership, Superior Packaging is operated by the businesses partners and supported by Community Living Mississauga.
“Superior Packaging provides professional product assembly and customized packaging services with an unmatched attention to detail and a high standard of quality control,” explained Michele Signorile, Business Development Manager at Superior Packaging. “We are a social purpose enterprise; operating as a business, featuring high-quality products and services.”
This partnership business is now owned and operated by individuals who have an intellectual disability. The majority of the partners at Superior Packaging have been in their positions for more than 15 years, which brings a level of knowledge and expertise that has already built a strong customer base from the Automotive, Banking, Construction, Medical/Pharmaceutical, and Marketing sectors.
“We’ve created our new logo and just launched our new web site at www.superiorpackaging.ca,” continued Signorile. “All of the partners and the rest of the team here at Superior packaging are very excited about the future of this new business.”
