Pack Expo Las Vegas 2021

October 7th, 2021

PMC displayed its brand new booth design this past September 27th-29Th at Pack Expo Las Vegas!  John Fortin, Mike Hansen, Adam Wescott and Bud Custer represented Paper Machinery Corporation at the event that was held at the Las Vegas Convention Center.  This was an opportunity to display the latest PMC products and innovations, connect with customers, and introduce PMC to a new audience.  Vice President of Packaging Mike Hansen said, “It was great to get back to meeting with the rest of the industry in person.  As expected, PMMI did an excellent job of creating an environment that encourages networking and for business to occur.”  Pack Expo, PMMI’s most comprehensive packaging and processing event, was a great success, with over 23,000 attendees, and over 1,500 exhibitors, it served as the largest packaging trade show in the U.S. in 2021.

There was a noticeable energy across the attendees and exhibitors at this year’s show.  People were ready to do business and were excited to discuss new projects with PMC.  It was also evident that there was a common theme and that was an increased focus on automation.  As companies continue to manage the current state of the labor force, there are a few solutions.

  1. Increased packaging equipment efficiency rates
  2. Higher speed equipment
  3. Implementation of robotics and automation

While we did also hear the impact that the global supply chain is having on customers evaluating new projects, it is promising to hear the number of sustainable paper-based projects that are on the horizon.  As the world continues to shake off the lasting impact of the pandemic, PMC believes its solutions are in a position to support a changing world.
