Strengthening the Future Workforce

Our Goal

The PMMI Foundation is the charitable foundation of PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies. We are committed to supporting the future workforce of the packaging and processing industry by providing academic scholarships to students pursuing careers in the industry, supporting manufacturing summer camps, in addition to assisting colleges, universities, technical schools, and programs designed to promote career opportunities and help close the skilled workforce gap.  

Over 3.8 million dollars provided to strengthen the future workforce of the packaging and processing industry.

We're working hard to help strengthen the future Workforce.
