PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, owner and producer of the PACK EXPO portfolio of trade shows, was recognized yesterday with a Best Manufacturing Associations to Work For Award.

This survey and awards program by the National Association of Manufacturers’ (NAM) Council of Manufacturing Associations (CMA) in partnership with Best Companies Group was designed to identify, recognize and honor the best employers among manufacturing associations, benefiting the industry's economy, workforce and businesses. The list is made up of PMMI along with nine other manufacturing associations that were honored at an award dinner last night.

“The NAM is proud to recognize and congratulate these outstanding associations for building exemplary work environments,” said Jay Timmons, president and CEO, NAM. “Manufacturing is about people, and that is just as true on the shop floor as it is in our associations and advocacy work. We’re dedicated to helping all of our CMA members identify best practices and learn from each other. Celebrating the best of the best helps all of us succeed.”

PMMI, a Reston, Virginia-based professional/trade show association that connects the makers of goods with packaging and processing suppliers, boasts a comprehensive benefits package for its employees that includes generous savings programs, first-rate health insurance, flexible work schedules, ample personal time off, substantial learning and development opportunities, multiple wellness initiatives, and more.

Everyone on the PMMI team stands by the company’s cultural core values: commitment to service, pursuit of excellence, camaraderie, dependability and initiative.

“PMMI staff are critical to the success of PMMI and without them, we would not be able to do what we do. Everyone on the PMMI team should be proud of this achievement. It’s truly a group effort,” says Jim Pittas, president and CEO, PMMI. “I think it is very important that PMMI continually finds innovative ways to move forward. While we always find ways to help the industry progress through our business drivers, media group offerings and trade shows, we are also always working to cultivate an innovative and progressive place to work by taking care of our employees and exemplifying our core values every day.”
