Food processing and packaging equipment manufacturer tna has officially opened a new, state-of-the-art manufacturing facility in the Melbourne suburb of Boronia, in response to global demand for its high performance solutions. This will allow it to triple production of its cutting-edge equipment, including its flagship vertical form fill and seal packaging system, the tna robag.
The facility includes the latest manufacturing technology to ensure tna maintains the high standards its equipment is known for, as well as a demonstration and training centre allowing customers and new staff to experience a live operational environment. In combination with tna’s wide range of on-site and online training programs, this will help customers improve workplace safety, reduce downtime, enhance operational efficiencies and maximise the lifespan and performance of their tna machines.
“tna’s growth has been incredible over the years,” said cofounder and Managing Director Alf Taylor at the opening. ”We’ve come a long way since we opened our first factory in Melbourne in 1986. Since then, the demand for our integrated packaging solutions has increased rapidly. In fact, we’ve just sold 84 in a single month, which are all due for delivery in early 2019.
"Thanks to our new site, we’ll not only easily be able to meet such a high-volume orders, but also gain the capacity to expand our operations even further in the future. We’re really proud of our new Australian manufacturing facility and can’t wait to welcome everyone at the new site!”
The opening of the Australian facility follows the opening of a food processing centre in the Netherlands, which is dedicated to cutting-edge processing equipment, including fryers and freezers, as well as pre-processing equipment such as peelers, washers and dryers, and recent openings of new and expanded offices and resource centres in Tokyo, Bangkok, Dubai, Moscow and Mexico.
