FPS Food Process Solutions (FPS) has acquired majority control of Charlottetown Metal Products (CMP). FPS is a global leader in turnkey food freezing and cooling equipment and has been growing at a compounded rate for the past 8 years since their inception in 2010. Led by President, Jeffrey Chang, FPS has offices in Vancouver, BC (head office), southeastern United States, Brazil, China, the Netherlands and now adds a significant east coast Canadian operation to their portfolio.

CMP has been designing and building custom food processing equipment for over 60 years and serves renowned global multinational companies. CMP is also one of PEI’s top employers, with a staff of 80.

“With a shared focus for hygienic design, CMP is a timely and strategic fit that will add to our capabilities in diversifying product line offerings”, said Jeffrey Chang, President of FPS. “The acquisition accelerates our expansion in North America, as part of our global growth.”
