tna (, a food processing and packaging equipment manufacturer, has officially opened a new, state-of-the-art Australian manufacturing facility to support the global demand for its high performance food packaging solutions. The new factory will allow tna to triple the manufacturing capacities for its cutting-edge equipment, including its flagship vertical form fill and seal (VFFS) packaging system, the tna robag.

The new facility will house some of the latest manufacturing technology. In addition, the site will incorporate a new training and demonstration center to provide customers and new staff with an opportunity to experience tna’s cutting-edge equipment in a live operational environment. In combination with tna’s wide range of on-site and online training programs, the new training facility will help customers improve workplace safety, reduce downtime, enhance operational efficiencies and maximize the lifespan and performance of their tna solution.

“tna’s growth has been incredible over the years,” said Alf Taylor, managing director and co-founder, tna. ”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 integrated packaging systems 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!”
