J&J packaging engineer receives APPMA scholarship


The winner of the sixth annual Australian Packaging and Processing Machinery Association (APPMA) scholarship was announced at the Australian Institute of Packaging (AIP) National Conference last week.

Aleah Black, a packaging engineer with Johnson&Johnson Pacific, was named as the scholarship winner. The scholarship will enable Black to study a Diploma in Packaging Technology.

“Aleah is an ideal candidate for the scholarship as she has shown a huge interest and commitment in undertaking the Diploma in Packaging Technology. She has both academic and practical expertise in the industry and is keen to expand her technical education in the packaging industry,” said Mark Dingley, APPMA chairman.

“Aleah not only has an interest in packaging but also the engineering process, and she has had the opportunity to learn about injection technology, in-mould labelling and advanced robotic production systems. Aleah will commence her Diploma in Packaging Technology this year and we look forward to seeing her graduate.”

The APPMA said all of this year’s finalists were of an “exceptional calibre”. The three other finalists were:
