tna, Coppell, Texas, acquired Sabalpack, an Italy-based manufacturer of all stainless-steel vertical form-fill-seal technology for the fresh and frozen sector.
“We’re extremely excited to announce the integration of Sabalpack into the tna business together with the launch of the tna arctic 3,” says Michael Green, group general manager at tna. “We see immense opportunities in the fresh and frozen foods sector – in particular as people continue to look for foods that blend convenience, health and indulgence. Food manufacturers in this segment, however, need to adhere to some of the strictest sanitary regulations, so a simple and hygienic equipment design is critical. Sabalpack has a long history in the development of all stainless-steel equipment, which made the company’s portfolio a great fit for our own range of high performance VFFS technology.”
“The global demand for fresh and frozen foods shows no signs of slowing down and flexibility will be key for long-term commercial success. Today’s food manufacturers need equipment that allows them to quickly change their production setup to adapt to the ever-changing market demands. At tna, we’ve always been committed to providing our customers with forward-thinking solutions that can deliver long-term benefits and the tna arctic 3 is no exception. Whether its multi-head weighers, conveyers, date coders, metal detectors or inserters and labellers, we’re able to support fresh and frozen manufacturers with complete solutions from a single source.”
