RESTON, VA — To project its expanding membership and business ventures, the Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute today announced a new identity, logo and strategic vision. It adopted PMMI as its official name and officially discontinued using “the Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute” publicly.

“PMMI has had a long, distinguished history as Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute, but that name doesn’t reflect who we are today,” said Charles D. Yuska, president and CEO, PMMI. “We’re PMMI, and we are The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies.”

The new logo modernizes the familiar PMMI “shield” and lettering, incorporating PMMI’s history while embracing the present and future of the association and the industries it serves.

“In 1933, PMMI only represented packaging machinery manufacturers,” Mr. Yuska said. “Today, we’re a resource for the entire packaging and processing supply chain. The shift has come over time, as we have addressed our members’ and their customers’ needs. We’ve communicated that point in our strategic vision. Now our logo and descriptor line reflect it, too.”

PMMI’s strategic vision statement supports the comprehensive nature of the PACK EXPO shows and the demands of PMMI members’ markets, stating, “PMMI convenes packagers, processors, and their supply chain partners to facilitate innovation, foster connections, and develop business opportunities.”
