tna announces the opening of TNA Solutions (Shanghai) Co. Ltd to provide local food manufacturers with on-the-ground support services.  

Located in the Minhang district of Shanghai, the office will be managed by Sean Xu, who recently joined tna as general manager – China, and will host both sales and technical service staff. The new office follows the opening of tna’s first Chinese manufacturing site in Qingdao in 2011.

”China is one of the major economic players in the world and we're delighted to be opening another site here as we continue to expand our global footprint,” comments Alf Taylor, CEO at tna. Our installation base in the country is well-established, ranging from baggers, conveyors, fryers and seasoning equipment to complete potato processing and confectionery molding lines. With our new Shanghai office, we are even more accessible to our local customer base.” 

Sean Xu (pictured) is an expert in providing customized processing and packaging solutions. Xu says that the Chinese food industry is expected to grow faster than anywhere else in the world. “It’s a huge and highly competitive market, but it’s also a market that is filled with opportunities. In particular food safety and automation will be key issues over the next few years, something tna is well-equipped for, thanks to its comprehensive portfolio of integrated turnkey solutions. There is also a growing number of time-pressed consumers with higher disposable incomes, who desire confectionery products with new tastes and flavors, making it an ideal market for our flexible starch molding technology from NID. Together, we’ll be able to equip local manufacturers with the tools and strategies they need to gain a stronger competitive advantage.”

tna has also set up a brand new Chinese website: at www.tnasolutions.cn
