About us

Tucked away on Canada’s far east coast is beautiful Prince Edward Island (PEI). With a population of only 150,000 people, and over 100 beaches, PEI is a quaint and breathtaking destination, a perfect backdrop for a custom food processing equipment manufacturer. Our location is also in close proximity to many food growing and processing centers.

CMP Equipment was founded in PEI in 1958 by a pioneering entrepreneur named Billy Rix. Billy saw the need to build a great culture of like-minded people who would work diligently to solve many of the processing equipment challenges for major food processors all over the world.

Today, though a new leadership team has taken the helm, CMP is still headquartered in PEI and continues to serve blue chip customers all around the globe. CMP has grown to over 100 people from their 42,000 square foot plants in Milton, PEI. An exciting 50,000 square foot expansion is currently underway effectively quadrupling the manufacturing operations floor space. Using the most modern technology and software to design, build and install custom food processing equipment, CMP continues to be a leader in the industry. CMP began its journey into food processing 60 years ago in the seafood processing industry and has evolved to serve the potato, meat & poultry, fruit & vegetable, seafood, bakery, and other food processing industries.

CMP is proud to have joined the FPS family early in 2019. We are working collaboratively with the FPS team to bring even more value to our clients. A thriving corporate culture is our top priority at CMP. Through our lean transformation, our people have been given the tools and the authority to make key decisions that continuously improve our business. We have developed a set of processes we call “The CMP Way” to ensure consistency in our delivery of value and service to our clients. We have developed and mentored our engineering and manufacturing teams to ensure that we surpass the most recent hygienic design techniques and standards. Our promise that “We Engineer Food Safety” motivates our entire team to serve our clients better and ensure we keep food safe for consumption by our families and yours.
