“We've had great turnout and showcased many different packaging machines because, as I always say, there is more than one way to package a product,” said Greg Berguig, Vice President, PAC Machinery.

"Shows are great! I think in today's world we're so conditioned to just go online, do our own research and buy but for packaging machinery there is nothing like seeing it live in person, with product being packaged and with special unique options that we showcase. Being able to ask our experts questions – that’s what PACK EXPO is all about,” said Berguig.
