Andersen provided an overview of PMMI to Klobuchar and Herrndstadt, who learned the association now has over 1,000 member companies representing the North American packaging and processing manufacturers. 

According to Herrnstadt, “It is amazing to see the innovation being generated by U.S. manufacturing, and I would love to personally speak at one of PMMI’s upcoming events.”

Says Klobuchar, who is focused on a variety of efforts to promote manufacturing in Minnesota, “With 95% of the world’s population outside the U.S., there never has been a better time to assist our innovative and growing manufacturing companies, like Delkor, with export opportunities.” PW
