Integrated packaging and processing solutions provider tna will showcase its complete range of high performance processing and packaging systems at Thaifex 2015 for the first time, alongside SRIPIPAT Engineering Ltd. Visitors to the stand will be able to learn about tna’s recent acquisitions of leading food processing specialists, Florigo® and FOODesign, and how this enables tna to further boost its processing capabilities and cement its position as a leading provider of start-to-finish solutions. Following the opening of tna’s new office in Thailand last year, experts will also be on hand to demonstrate how its on-the-ground team can better service tna’s growing number of customers in the region with an in-depth knowledge of local market trends and tailor-made systems.
Alongside its existing portfolio of packaging, seasoning and distribution solutions, tna now offers a variety of Florigo’s continuous snack and french fry lines, including patented continuous vacuum frying technology. This, coupled with FOODesign’s world leading fryers and cookers, featuring batch fryers, continuous fryers, baking and toasting ovens, and speciality roasting equipment - all suitable for a variety of applications - means that tna can now offer customers a comprehensive range of options, from smaller direct-fired batch fryers to complete french fry production lines with capacities of up to 30,000kg/h, to deliver customised, efficient turnkey solutions.
tna will also highlight its system control and integration expertise. The team will demonstrate the benefits of control systems, such as programmable logic controllers (PLC) and supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA). These systems are easily integrated into existing production lines giving plant operators the ability to target specific areas where inefficiencies are most prevalent. This ensures that each element of the production line works in harmony with each other, resulting in a fully optimised and seamless operation.
Paul Webster, tna general manager - Asia comments: “We’re delighted to be exhibiting at this year’s Thaifex exhibition. With our recent acquisition of food processing specialists FOODesign and Florigo, this is an exciting time for tna and we’re proud to showcase our extended range of high performance solutions to this diverse region. Asia represents a significant market for tna, and we look forward to showing how our tailored approach and integrated solutions can help manufacturers optimise their total production line”
tna’s Thailand office opened in July 2014 as part of its global expansion strategy. Hosting sales, project management and service teams, the office confirms the company’s commitment to this dynamic region, while reinforcing its leadership position within the international packaging and processing industries.
