n late 2021, PMMI, the association for packaging and processing technologies, will launch a highly searchable and interactive directory at PMMIProSource.org.
The directory will make it easier than ever to help buyers of packaging and processing technologies search and find the solutions they need, and that PMMI member companies supply.
PMMI membership consists of more than 900 North American manufacturers and suppliers of equipment, components and materials as well as providers of related equipment and services to the packaging and processing industry. PMMI connects consumer goods companies with its members’ manufacturing solutions through the PACK EXPO portfolio of trade shows, related trade media including Packaging World and ProFood World, a wide range of business resources, and now this website, PMMI ProSource.
PMMI is investing significant resources into the directory to make it a truly useful tool for buyers:
• Will incorporate a brand-new, from-the-ground-up, user-friendly product taxonomy
• Leverages the latest digital search and filter techniques to quickly find what you need, including a visual search paradigm that’s specific to packaging
• A full-time editor will curate member listings, ensuring they are in the right categories
• A panel of end-user experts will advise the design and build-out of the site
The directory will be one of the first products PMMI creates using human-centered design, which involves techniques for interviewing and observing users, developing insights into their needs, and testing product concepts and prototypes with them. The website will follow an agile methodology, with the initial launch focused on company profiles, but over time expanded to include product demos and videos, among other content.
If you wish to be notified of when the site goes live, or if you are an end user and wish to provide feedback on prototypes, please fill out the form, and bookmark this page.
