These include Kimberly Clark, Sara Lee Bakery, Conagra, Procter & Gamble, 3M, Rockline, Tyco Healthcare, Johnson & Johnson, Ferrero and many others.Over the last three years, PFM Packaging Machinery Corp has shown an annual growth rate of in excess of 16 per cent.
A group of companies
From the beginning, PFM has worked constantly towards helping our customersachieve success and create opportunity for innovation, along with encouragement in making the most from their resources and employees professional and personal skills
“Goals can only be achieved by manufacturing excellent quality machines” is the principle that drives PFM. This premise was the principle our founder based PFM upon, evolving over time, adapting to new design and manufacturing requirements to become a strategic priority today.
Research and Development are essential to the creation process, and is critical to identifying the technical means necessary to put an original concept into practice. PFM believes this function is crucial, so much so that our R&D department is run personally by the proprietors.
The innovation that PFM continuously has offered the markets over the years is the result of our investment into Research and Development. This can clearly be seen in the daily work of dozens of technicians who are encouraged to pool their skills, share their experiences and objectives. There is a deep awareness within these men and women that a new idea stems from a highly motivated, joyful spirit, which is irreplaceable in a modern company that sets its sights on the future, on an ever more selective and diversified market.
The strength of PFM Group remains in ouroriginal technological ideas, in our perseverance to create new concepts and technology, and absolute determination to be always one step ahead.
We are an organised, efficient and competitive company, and our aim is to offer you the very best every time.
