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

I hope you all have had a great year thus far and are looking forward to summer vacations with family. Not meaning to jump too far ahead but I must remind you that it is time to start your planning to attend the fall Petroleum Packaging Council Meeting August 26th-28th. This fall’s meeting will be held in Savannah and promises to be another great meeting. On top of our great technical sessions we will hold our second Speed Networking event, which is back by popular demand. There will also be an abbreviated PPC College 101. All our behind the scenes members do a wonderful job making these meetings educational and fact filled. Thank you to the Technical Committees, Long Range Planning Committee, The Board, and Brenda Baker for your dedication and hard work. Below is a brief blurb touting the beauty of Savannah. I wish all of you a wonderful and safe summer. We are all looking forward to seeing you at the Fall Meeting.

Best Regards, 
Sam Merenda, Jr.
PPC President
