Mission Statement: We will profitably provide innovative cost effective supply chain solutions to the consumer-packaged goods industry.
We are a customer-focused company that has been constantly finding competitive logistic advantages for several years now.

Spectrum Supply Chain Inc. has co-packing facilities inside their distribution centres that are able to provide clients with a variety of quality services. These areas operate on many different shifts: morning and afternoon five days a week or seven days if necessary. A qualified company like Spectrum will be able to reduce your products lead- time in getting to the market because of our experience and efficiency. Future orders can be sent and held without inventory assigned to them until a committed day is decided, then the order will pull inventory and drop for shipping to meet the customers due date. Visible future orders allow Spectrum to plan labour hours to accommodate heavy packing days, usually in September and October. We are able to staff our co-packing areas with anywhere from 30-70 people daily. Spectrum is fully capable to handle any large or small co-packing opportunity.

Spectrum Inc. is dedicated to making their co packing area a safe and comfortable atmosphere to work in. Each warehouse has full amenities including an indoor/outdoor cafeteria with refrigerators, microwaves, vending machines and lockers. Most employees use the amenities to relax during their lunch and coffee breaks. Our main focus is the health and safety of the staff; each employee is required to wear steel-toe boots, a hairnet, gloves and a lab coat. These uniforms not only help keep the staff safe but they also maintain a sanitary environment for the client’s confectionary products. The whole staff realizes that safety is the number one priority, so everybody works together to keep a clean and safe work environment while completing any of our client services.
The co-packing manager organized a health and safety committee to enforce the safety issues at each warehouse. All warehouse employees that operate any type of equipment must have a license and be fully trained. Security is also a high priority in the workplace so a hand scan punch clock system was installed to protect our employees and our client’s products. This way Spectrum management always knows who is in the building at all times. There is also an alarm system to protect the warehouses at night. All truck drivers must check in with the dispatch officer before they enter the warehouse; this eliminates people.
