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.
