U.S. packaging machinery exports on the rise

New data released by the Packaging Machinery Manufacturers Institute (PMMI), based on U.S. Census estimates, shows strong growth in packaging machinery exports. From January through November 2006, U.S. exports increased 7% compared to 2005, totaling $783 million. Packaging machinery imports increased by 6%. According to PMMI, growth can be traced to end users adding capacity for product introductions and new package designs, as well as new machine models featuring state-of-the-art technology replacing older equipment.
