Call for APPMA award submissions


Submissions for the Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association (APPMA) 2011 Awards of Excellence will close on February 18.

Award winners will be announced at AUSPACK PLUS in Melbourne in March.

The biennial Awards of Excellence are conducted by the Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association and supported by DB Schenker, Midway Metals, PKN, SEW Eurodrive and SMC.

The Awards recognise companies and employees for their outstanding contribution to meet the needs of the packaging industry.

The APPMA has broad entry criteria with entries encouraged and accepted from any company that meets the membership criteria of the Association.

The focus of the Awards is to be directed towards the business improvements, says APPMA Chairman Rob Lawrence.

“For example, increase in sales or profit for the machinery supplier, or an efficiency increase, or cost reduction to the customer by using the packaging machinery,” he says.

The Awards will be presented to both the company submitting the award entry to the APPMA and where applicable to the company’s customer.

All companies within the packaging industry are encouraged to enter. Non-APPMA member companies are invited to submit entries.
