This year’s PACK EXPO International 2018 and the co-located Healthcare Packaging EXPO was quite the experience, certainly living up to its reputation as the year’s most comprehensive packaging trade show. The event was produced by PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, and was an opportunity for buyers and suppliers to network and witness the very latest, cutting-edge technology.
2,500 exhibitors and roughly 50,000 attendees gathered together over this three-day span to interact and explore ways to create efficiencies and apply new technology. The event featured:
- 40+ vertical markets
- 1.2 million sq. ft. showroom floor
- 2,500+ top industry suppliers
- 100+ free educational presentations
We would like to extend our thanks to all of The Packaging Wholesalers team members that spent hours in our booth greeting potential customers, explaining offerings, and sharing our dedication to the ease of doing business.
At this year’s show, we were excited to spread the word about our free freight thresholds shipping to all 43,000 zip codes in the United States, as well as our optimized distributor website offering local delivery and CPU in Chicago, Dallas, NYC, Philadelphia, and now Atlanta.
We were most excited, however, to share the news of our new facility servicing the southeastern United States from Atlanta, GA. Opening its doors in early November 2018, this new location features 400,000 sq. ft., 40 dock doors, and a proximity to the southeast that will allow customers to capitalize on competitive pricing and improved lead times. Our nationally recognized Delivered Pricing Program is set to deliver even more value for our customers with the addition of this new location. Strategically located near 3 major interstates, our Atlanta facility will allow us to optimize orders based on their destination. Stay tuned to our social channels for updates on the grand opening.
Our experience at this year’s PACK EXPO International was truly one to remember. With such promising growth in the packaging industry, we can’t wait to attend in the years to come!
