Precision Press Puts the Spotlight on Sustainable Packaging


Even before the doors opened at the McCormick Place on Nov. 2nd the Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute (PMMI) predicted that this year’s show would break attendance records. They could not have been more accurate with attendance exceeding 48,600 (Source: With a crowd that large one can only imagine the abundance of innovations and new technologies that were presented over the four day span of Pack Expo International 2014.

Every inch of the 1.2 million square foot facility had something to offer. The continuously popular Innovation Stage was expanded this year with more than 60 informational seminars. Each seminar was chock-full of eager industry buffs interested in the latest technologies.

The RPA Reusable Packaging Pavilion opened eyes and ears to the many ways of increasing sustainability within the industry. Across the skyway were the North and South buildings which were home to The Confectionary Pavilion, Beverage Cooler Lounge, Robotics Showcase, and much more including The Brand Zone where Precision Press was located. We showcased our new Barrier IML technology and the IMDA award winning IPL SkinnyPack (both pictured below). These smart containers sparkeda lot of interest in both maintaining a product’s shelf life as well as sustainable packaging which was all the rage at this year’s show.
