"It is a great honor to be recognized by fellow business leaders in South Florida," said Murray. "We are passionate about pouch packaging and think it is the packaging of the future. Integral to our success has been the plan not to just sell pouch packaging machinery to customers, but to work with them to develop some 21 market segments, which has helped create both opportunities and demand. But we are equally as passionate about best business practices and being part of our vibrant community."
Murray was recognized for innovative business practices that sell both pouch packaging machinery and consumables as a total system solution for its pouch packaging customers, rather than selling just StandUp pouch machinery. This approach resulted in a number of strategic global partnerships with companies from Europe and Asia that have set the standard for the StandUp pouch packaging industry and helped grow the overall potential of the pouch packaging market. Today PPiTG is the largest supplier of StandUp pouch machinery in North America, with over $20 million in revenues.
Since 1997, PPI Technologies has received a variety of awards. The company is also involved with over 39 charities and non-profit organizations, including the Special Olympics, Boys and Girls Club, Junior Achievement and Paralyzed Veterans of America. While pouch packaging is what PPi TG does, the team always seeks to touch hearts and make a difference in the lives of children and adults throughout the South Florida community.

About PPI Technologies Group:
PPI Technologies GROUP was started in 1996 by The Murray Family, who wanted to sell both machinery and consumables as a "total system," rather than selling just StandUp pouch machines. A single source machine supply very often did not offer the customer the best solution. This custom approach resulted in a joint venture with Laudenberg, now SN Machinery of Germany, Nishibe of Japan and Leepack of Korea, in new companies called PROFILE® Packaging and PakSource Global. The company was formed to sell machinery that manufactures pouches with slider and press-to-close zippers from printed laminated roll stock films, and also offers prefabricated pouches with spout fittings.
