Lansmont uses their expertise to design, manufacture, and deliver innovative self-powered environmental data recorders. They also design and manufacture laboratory test equipment, such as shock, vibration, compression and drop test machines which simulate environmental inputs and hazards. Lansmont provides equipment and services to manufacturing and logistics companies in many different industry categories (Medical Device, Pharmaceutical, Food & Beverage, Automotive, Electronics, Aerospace, Military, Carriers, Insurance, etc.). Their customer list reads as a Fortune 500 who's who; Intel, Dell, Apple, Johnson & Johnson, Merck, Harley-Davidson, Daimler Chrysler, Honda, Boeing, Lockheed Martin, U.S. Navy, U.S. Army …. If a product is manufactured, it has to be transported. If it is transported, it usually needs protective packaging to assure it will arrive without degradation or damage. Whether it's HP printers moving from China to North America or Amgen biological products moving from Puerto Rico to Europe, there's no doubt they both use Lansmont technologies to make sure their products travel expeditiously without damage disrupting the process.

World Conference on Packaging 2018

The 21st IAPRI World Conference on Packaging will take place between 19-22 June in Zhuhai, China. It is hosted by Jinan University and Hunan University of Technology. Delegates and presenters at IAPRI events are used to finding themselves in impressive settings, and the Zhuhai Conference promises to be no exception, both in terms of the event venue itself and the locations for the social program.

 Meanwhile, huge progress has been made by the International Scientific Committee in refining the final program. Zhi-Wei Wang is professor and assistant president at JNU as well as being Conference chair. He explains: “Of the 207 abstracts approved for the general stream, 122 are accepted as oral presentations and 85 as poster presentations. In the peer review stream, 22 full papers were accepted for review. According to Dave Shires of Packaging Technology and Science, the review process for the peer review stream will be completed by April.”

The seven keynote speakers kicking off proceedings will be just the first of many highpoints over the four days of the event. A floating Official Dinner on the Wednesday will see former IAPRI President Thomas Goedecke being presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award. Presentations from contenders for IAPRI’s Student Exchange Scholarship (generously sponsored by PepsiCo) will be staged on the Thursday.

 Regarding social activities, Zhi-Wei Wang says: “We plan to host the Official Dinner as a banquet in a ship-like restaurant off the coast, with local artistic performances. The view there is very beautiful, both of the sea itself and the newly-built Zhuhai Opera House.” Former IAPRI president Thomas Goedecke, of BAM, Germany, will be present at the onboard banquet to receive his Lifetime Achievement Award, in recognition of his huge contribution both professionally and within IAPRI over the years.

In contrast to the Official Dinner, the Social Dinner will take place on the outskirts of Zhuhai, in “a place with a strong flavor of the countryside,” says Zhi-Wei Wang.

Three Working Group (WG) meetings will take place on the afternoon of the final day, after the IAPRI General Meeting, starting with the Packaging and Consumers WG and then with the Distribution Packaging and Sustainable Packaging
