Our board members work to enforce and maintain our bylaws, interpret success, financial review (development and approval), strategic direction, and employee review. We also know that success is made by the people who work in the daily operations, so we provide work environments that allow everyone to feel safe, knowledgable, and supported.
I am pleased to say that in these 10 years we have grown significantly in both size and scope. PDA now covers the United States, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean with reach throughout Europe, partnering with a UK distributor. We are truly a global business and are still growing. PDA represents over $1.7 Billion in packaging sales to our served communities and will continue to gain business as well as recognition within the industry.
Something else happened along the way! We discovered that we all had a sincere and genuine need to be stewards of strength and wellbeing to the communities we serve. We understood that our customers are also our neighbors and friends and that we needed to be good shepherds of everything they represent. We do this by making sure we practice solid environmental practices, employing citizens within our communities and through philanthropic behavior.
I am proud of what PDA has become and what it will continue to be, most of all I am proud of our ongoing efforts to support local charities that seldom get the exposure needed to continue to do good work.
I want to thank all of PDA’s partners, distributors, suppliers and customers for allowing us the privilege of being part of their success and for their support of what we stand for.
President, Packaging Distributors of America
