Unlike those of us in the packaging industry, most professionals hope to avoid (or at least find unnecessary) the unique details that go into making a pallet. For many buyers, basic packaging lingo can be confusing, alienating or just plain frustrating.
Fun may not be the first thing that comes to mind when we reflect on the past year (neither, for many of us, is the phrase “at work”), but today is National Fun at Work Day, and we’re celebrating by looking at some of the ways Millwood has tried to keep the workplace enjoyable, even under unprecedented circumstances.
Many of us have had our lives upended by COVID-19, but there is reason to remain optimistic. The manufacturing sector has shown steady growth, which is projected to continue over the course of the next year.

What better time to make a gift rather than buy one? Homemade gifts can save money and be just as high quality as what we find in the store. It’s also a unique way to show that you care. The time and effort that goes into making a...
Millwood is continuing to monitor the economic factors that affect our industry. PMMI’s recent State of the Industry U.S. Packaging Machinery Report described the various ways that the global economy is impacting the packaging industry as well as projections of how these economic trends are likely to continue influencing the production of machinery and packaging in the coming years.
