Kliklok LLC, a Syntegon company

What does your company specialize in?

Kliklok manufactures carton forming and closing machinery, as well as end load cartoning and vertical/form/fill/seal machinery.

How has your company benefited from PMMI membership?

What has been particularly beneficial for Kliklok and for other OEMs is the increasing engagement we've had with CPG companies. This clearly distinguishes PMMI from other trade associations. It's truly an inclusive group, adding value in so many ways to its member companies.

What are some of your favorite PMMI offerings?

One of the highlights of my career has been my involvement with PMMI. PMMI is so much more than the greatest packaging shows in the world, headlined by PACK EXPO International and PACK EXPO Las Vegas. Beyond these great shows, I also enjoy the member events, such as the Annual Meeting, now being held for the first time virtually.

There are also opportunities to network directly with CPGs and supplier members. And PMMI offers training for our employees and opportunities to extend our reach into new markets, industry surveys and business intelligence that are among the most valuable in any industry.

What are you looking forward to most at the 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting?

I'm looking forward to the valuable content that will be presented each day and the chance to virtually network again with good friends and expand my knowledge of this wonderful industry.
