PMMI strengthens relationship with OMAC

April 6, 2011


PMMI will provide staff support to further the mission of OMAC, the Organization for Machine Automation and Control. PMMI’s supplier membership provides processing and packaging solutions that use OMAC Packaging Workshop Guidelines to create compatible equipment for modern production operations.

PMMI’s support will enable OMAC’s volunteer leadership to expand its membership domestically and internationally, plus engage customer and supplier teams in further developing OMAC standards, including PackML (packaging machinery language). The goal is to extend further production standards for packaging equipment.

According to Rob Aleska, OMAC board member and Procter & Gamble controls manager, “On behalf of the OMAC Board of Directors, I wish to express our appreciation for PMMI’s longstanding support, which has been essential to OMAC Packaging Workgroup’s concept of ‘win-win-win,’ meaning initiatives that benefit packaging machinery users, OEMs and automation technology providers, all of whom are PMMI constituents.”
