IoPP Announces a New Strategic Alliance with PMMI

April 5, 2019
 
The Institute of Packaging Professionals (IoPP) today announces a new strategic partnership with PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies.  This alliance will allow IoPP to provide additional value to its members and expand its reach by engaging new members.  IoPP maintains its vital role within the industry by providing packaging professionals with the educational and networking opportunities they require to succeed in their careers.
 
Under the terms of the agreement, PMMI will manage, with the guidance of IoPP’s Board of Directors, IoPP’s marketing and communications, and provide other support such as financial services and meeting planning.

Jane Chase, Executive Director of IoPP said, “IoPP and PMMI have a history of successfully working together on projects. We look forward to continuing that journey, taking our strong relationship to the next level for the betterment of both organizations, and allowing IoPP to better serve the packaging community moving forward.”
 
“Our core purpose is to unite the industry across the manufacturing supply chain, and this enhanced relationship with IoPP helps us do that,” said Jim Pittas, PMMI president and CEO.  “PMMI and IoPP members share common goals and this partnership allows us to address industry challenges together.”
 
The agreement takes effect May 1st.
