Nick Wilson is President and Founder of Morrison Container Handling Solutions, a leader in the packaging machinery manufacturing industry, providing custom designed container handling systems, timing screws and change parts for national and international companies since 1971. Throughout his career, Wilson has been a tireless advocate for advancement in the packaging machinery manufacturing industry, particularly as it relates to dynamic education for future industry leaders. As a result of this commitment, Wilson was inducted into the prestigious Packaging Hall of Fame in 2012, and in 2011 he was honored with the Professional Achievement Citation in Engineering (PACE) from Iowa State University. When Wilson began to observe the packaging machinery industry undergoing a transition from primarily mechanical operations to complex combinations of mechanical and servo/PLC controls, he was at the forefront of efforts to build engineering education programs that integrated electrical and mechanical knowledge. To that end, in 2008, Wilson spearheaded the development and growth of the mechatronics education program at Purdue University Calumet (Hammond, Indiana), culminating in the creation of the first four-year mechatronics degree program in the United States. In 2010-2012, Wilson chaired PMMI, the leading global resource for the packaging and processing industries. Wilson remains active with both PMMI and at Purdue Calumet, where he serves on the Dean’s Advisory Committee. With renewed industry-wide attention to focused education and industry alliances, Wilson believes in a bright and successful future for students and packaging machinery manufacturers alike. He has a BS in chemical engineering from Iowa State University a master’s degree in Business Administration from Loyola University, Chicago.
