Packaging Hall of Fame Class of 2011

The Packaging Hall of Fame Class of 2011 spans a range of expertise and even a generation or two.

But what each of the five inductees has in common transcends any of those differences: generosity of spirit and commitment to education.

PMMI will honor these five industry leaders in a special reception and induction ceremony Sept. 26, 2011, at 4:15 p.m., at the Las Vegas Hilton, which is adjacent to the Las Vegas Convention Center and Pack Expo Las Vegas:

• Victor Del Rosso, Hi-Speed Checkweigher (retired)

• Lawrence C. Dull, MS, CPP, Packaging Knowledge Group

• Arthur Gustafson, Algus Packaging

• Thomas L. Schneider, CPP, Industrial & Shippers Supply

• M.H. "Pete" Wallace, SWF Machinery (retired)

"Each of this year's inductees is known for the ways he gives of his time to promote the packaging industry and education--mentoring other professionals, serving on local boards of education, leading college-level courses," says Maria Ferrante, vice president, education & workforce development, PMMI.

Proceeds from the reception benefit PMMI's Packaging Education and Training Foundation, which offers scholarships for students in two- or four-year packaging programs.

Individual tickets are available for $75 each and corporate sponsorships range from $1,500 to $3,000. The entire packaging community is invited to support the industry, its leaders and their colleagues. Potential sponsors should contact Maria Ferrante, PMMI, at or 703/243-8555 for details.
