Welcome to the first edition of Machinery Matters
Brought to you by the APPMA in an exclusive partnership with PKN Packaging News.
The Machinery Matters publication marks an exciting collaboration between the industry’s peak packaging and processing machinery association and the leading packaging media platform in Australasia.
In every issue and through regular digital news briefs, we will disseminate a mix of association news, member news and information pertaining to packaging and processing machinery that is of interest and relevance to both our members and the broader packaging and processing community. Remaining relevant in our fast evolving social and industrial environment is crucial for any organisation’s survival and success, not least an association of APPMA’s standing. Servicing members needs with a view to supporting their businesses and creating a thriving industry was the cornerstone of our foundation over 35 years ago. It remains a priority today.
In our ongoing quest to deliver increased value to our members and the industry at large, the APPMA will be increasing the scope of services offered, including: creating a greater variety of networking opportunities for members and their customers; engaging the industry on key topics and establishing special interest groups; recognising members’ achievements and business performance; identifying business opportunities for members; and ramping up our promotional and marketing efforts to reinforce the APPMA brand and value within the industry and at selected international events to improve the visibility of our members to the wider industry.
As the leading professional organisation for the packaging and processing machinery industry, we believe it is incumbent on us to harness the best tools at our disposal to provide information and resources that will enable our industry to thrive and flourish. And this publication is just the start.
