Founded as the Empire Manufacturing Company Limited in London, Ontario in 1906, Emco Corporation is one of the oldest members of the construction market in Canada. On May 28, 2016, we celebrated 110 years of business success! This is no small accomplishment for a company that has witnessed two world wars and the Great Depression.
The key to EMCO’s business has been our people. Our business is driven by Profit Centres which operate at the local level, led by world-class leaders.
We have a network of over 250 Profit Centres thanks to the entrepreneurial spirit of our people. Our Profit Centres are strategically located and represent the top product lines in our industry. They are set up to ensure we always provide excellent service to our customers.
EMCO Corporation is one of Canada’s largest integrated distributors of products for the construction industry. EMCO offers products in the distinct categories of plumbing, waterworks, industrial and HVAC.
