Today EMW employs as many as 245 people. Every one of them is a part of
the family, some by blood, and all of them because of the special
relationships that they have formed with each other. Although employees
are spread across the prairie provinces, EMW is proud to call Saltcoats,SK
home. In 2007, Morrison decided that the ownership structure of the
company was not adequate to further grow the company. In a structured
management buy-in, fifteen members of EMW’s management team
became shareholders in the company. This new corporate structure
provided stability and new capital for EMW to expand capacity and
continue to grow.

Developing Innovation
From EMW’s earliest days, the senior management team has not been afraid to invest in new technologies and new industries. As an example, EMW has successfully diversified its services from serving only the agricultural sector to now serving agricultural, mining, oil and gas, and construction sectors.

Their Pepper Industrial Maintenance division is an example of how they increase value to their clients by using tools such as thermal imaging, vibration analysis, ultrasonics and other advanced technologies to predict and prevent failures.

Sales and Marketing
To manage company growth EMW developed a marketing group. The marketing group meets weekly and its purpose is to prepare EMW for the growth in the industries they serve, as well as to promote their products and services, internal and external communication, and service quality.

Long-Term Plan
EMW has grown continuously, a fact that they attribute to how well they take care of their customers. The succession plan that was put in place in 2007 has enabled EMW to train a new group of managers that are getting incredible experience and will lead EMW into the future.
