PIMA is a not for profit organisation set up to represent all convertors of plastic within Australia. PIMA's principal charter is the development of training resources for those employed in the industry and to enhance their skill levels. We seek to influence training bodies such as the NSW Industry Training Advisory Board (ITAB), Department of Education & Training (DET), TAFE and universities in the development of nationally accredited training materials. PIMA was founded on a sense of camaraderie and cooperation between members. It has evolved into a strong and effective organisation which is making a difference in government policies that affect its members. Despite its significant growth in activities, PIMA is still essentially a voluntary association.
