Australian headquartered packaging and processing solutions provider tna has wrapped up its most successful Interpack show to date, selling over 7m euro (A$10.5m) of equipment.
In the 7 days of Interpack, where tna had a strong presence at two different stands and one external innovations hall ten minutes from the showground, tna has achieved its biggest sales record in its history of attending the show.
The most significant sale was of its flagship NID M3000 starch mogul to MAYA Food Industries Ltd.
“This year’s interpack was a huge success for us,” comments Shayne De la Force, chief marketing officer at tna. “We’ve been attending the show for over 30 years now, but the interest in our solutions this year was extraordinary. We’re absolutely thrilled with the sale of our NID mogul on the last day of the show. The entire team did an amazing job, and I’m sure we’ll see even more orders coming through over the next few months as a result of interpack.”
Located at the heart of the exhibition, tna’s technology booth in hall 15 boasted the latest in virtual and augmented reality and contained a fully equipped bar and restaurant – making it the ideal place to explore the company’s 35 years of innovation.
Over in hall 3, tna’s confectionery booth was a hub of activity. Hosting the company’s fully automated starch mogul, the NID M3000, the innovative tna intelli-flav OMS 5 system for gummy polishing and the high-speed tna robag FX 3ci packaging system; the stand showcased the natural synergy between tna and newly acquired confectionery specialist NID.
To accommodate tna’s ever-growing portfolio of turnkey food processing and packaging solutions, the company also offered visitors a VIP shuttle service to its dedicated tna innovations hall at Dusseldorf Airport. The innovations hall showcased some of the most advanced food processing and packaging technology for the snacks, processing, nuts and legumes, and fresh and frozen industries – including the world’s fastest case packer for flexible bags. During the course of interpack, tna’s innovations hall hosted over 500 visitors, making it an immense success.
De la Force continues: “At tna, we take pride in our ability to build long-term customer relationships and interpack was a great opportunity for us to get together with customers and prospects and demonstrate our growing portfolio. We’ve received some great feedback from everyone who visited our innovations hall and look forward to building on the momentum our team created during the show.”
