Welcome to the PPC Member Home Page

The Petroleum Packaging Council is YOUR Association.

For over six decades, the PPC has served petroleum packaging professionals exclusively as the premiere technical trade association. The PPC continues to provide technical leadership, education and networking to our members with semi-annual conferences in March and August.

We appreciate your support and hope that you will become more involved in the organization to get the most out of your membership. Contact Committees Coordinator Kevin Whitehead of Plastipak Packaging, Inc. to participate in any of the PPC technical committees: International; Packaging-Containers and Components; Plant Operations (Blending, Packaging, Automation); EHS (Environment, Health and Safety) and Supply Chain Management (Warehouse, Shipping and Receiving). You can reach Kevin at: 734-812-6841 or via email: [email protected]

Benefits of Membership

The PPC not only offers the opportunity to network within the petroleum packaging and blending industry, but technical education, specialized PPC College courses and opportunities to meet with potential customers and vendors. We host a tradeshow every fourth meeting. This is another opportunity to inform members about the product and services you offer.

PPC's diverse membership is made up of professionals from the U.S., Canada, and abroad.

Building relationships through networking and meetings is of the utmost importance for the continued success of your business. Meet other packaging professionals when you attend the semi-annual meetings held throughout the U.S. in March and August.


President's Message

IPPC members, I hope you are all doing good personally and your respective businesses are strong and vibrant as well! Times are good, unemployment is down, and I am sure you are all working more hours than ever. The economy is very strong, and it is projected to be very steady in 2019 as well. I hope you are all riding the wave vigorously and trying diligently to improve the clarity of your respective brand from CEO to the front line just like our last Keynote Speaker, Gerry O’Brion, indicated to us all in the August meeting.

Even though business is good, I wanted to remind you of the holiday season that is fast approaching us all. These times are opportunities to reflect on family and what is really important in our respective lives. I urge each of you to think of something relating to your family that makes you smile. You are all probably SMILING right now! (I hope so.) Keep doing it and take the time to remember those who are struggling or are less fortunate. Help make your Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays ones to remember for years!

In closing, I hope you all are setting your sights on the next PPC meeting that will be held in beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona from March 3 rd -5 th , 2019. This will be an awesome venue to network with old friends and those that are new to the industry as well. The strong relationships that are built in this type of environment is what has helped make the PPC the exuberant organization it is today. So, mark your calendars now and come join us for a power-packed event.

Best Regards, 
Darren Booth
PPC President
