Enercon Industries’ sales manager, Brian Tyndall, has been elected to the Process & Packaging Machinery Association’s (PPMA) Board of Directors. He has taken over the role of Technical Director, with responsibilities including the organisation and running of seminars.
The PPMA is the UK’s most prominent trade association for suppliers of processing and packaging machinery and represents more than 400 member and associate companies.
Commenting on his appointment, Mr Tyndall said: “I’m pleased to have been selected to join the board of the PPMA, particularly at a time when its future is getting quite exciting. “Enercon has been a member of the PPMA since 1996 and I am pleased to be given the opportunity of making a more formal contribution to the membership.”
Mr Tyndall has worked in the packaging industry for over 30 years. Before moving to Enercon in 2004, he worked with a wide ranging number of European manufacturers, including Caval Engineering, Dunns Systems, GEI Group, and Portals Engineering. “The packaging industry has given me an exciting and varied career, and the opportunity to work on the PPMA Board of Directors presents itself as a superb opportunity for me to give back to the industry I have spent the majority of my working life in,” he added.
Mr Tyndall is the second Enercon employee to be selected as technical director. Richard Bull, managing director, held the title from 2008 to 2012.
The PPMA’s principal objective is to promote sales of machinery, both nationally and internationally, by effective marketing and free technical support. The association is also a founder member of the Confederation of Packaging Machinery Associations (COPAMA) which provides an international forum and voice for all the world’s major machinery manufacturing nations.
