Polymer Machinery Manufacturers and Distributors Association
PMMDA – Polymer Machinery Manufacturers and Distributors Association – is a well established industry association that provides important information, representation and a mutual support for companies in this sector.
The PMMDA was originally formed in 1966 as the PMDA (Plastics Machinery Distributors Association). The eight founder companies set out to agree a range of standards for both UK manufacturers and distributors of foreign machinery. From the need for quality of products, technical competence and service back-up came our association.
Whilst the faces may have changed, the association’s main aims have never altered, and a commitment to the education of potential industry employees has been backed by our financial support of the Plastics Industry Awards to support students.
Customers benefit from a database listing our members and the products they supply. We also advise them on specifications and applications with our Guide To series of publication.
The focus of PMMDA’s activities remains in exchanging information through networking and social events; provision of market statistics and industry data; communication of regular business and industry updates; representation and feedback on the development of EU and ISO Standards; and negotiation of member advantage at exhibitions and events.
