After a successful 27-year history, the Australian Packaging and Machinery Association (APMA), Australia’s only national packaging and machinery association, has changed its name.

The association will now be known as the Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association.

“Changing the association name to the Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association has been a long time coming and is designed to ensure that all of our member companies are represented accordingly,” said Mr Rob Lawrence, national chairman.

“For a long time our membership has involved both packaging and processing and the national board felt it was time to ensure that this was reflected in our overall corporate identity and association name. Our membership base covers all areas of packaging and processing equipment including food processing and process engineering equipment and our new name identifies all aspects of the industry.”

Mr Lawrence also announced changes to next year’s AUSPACK, Australasia’s largest biennial packaging and processing machinery exhibition.

From next year the exhibition will be known as AUSPACK PLUS with an expanded format to include the processing and plastics sectors of food, beverage and manufacturing industries.

“This expansion will offer greater benefits to all of our members and provide one exhibition for everyone in the packaging and processing machinery, plastics and associated materials sectors to attend,” Mr Lawrence said.

The Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association will soon unveil a new company logo and corporate identity. A new website aimed at improving member benefits and promoting member profiles is also being developed.
