Tetra Pak acquires NZ automation company

Tetra Pak has expanded its automation capabilities with the acquisition of food and beverage processing automation solutions provider Macro Automation.

Headquartered in Auckland, Macro Automation has key competencies in process engineering, plant automation and manufacturing execution systems (MES).

Following decades of collaboration, Tetra Pak said the acquisition enhances its ability to support Oceania customers across all food and beverage categories.

“With combined knowledge and strengths, as well as continued innovation, we believe we will deliver more value to our customers, helping them futureproof their plants and make the most of rapidly advancing Industry 4.0 trends,” said Chris Morgan, Regional Head of Processing Solutions and Equipment at Tetra Pak.

Ross Colville, founder and CEO at Macro Automation, said, “We have a strong history of working with Tetra Pak to support its customer offers across liquid dairy, cheese, beverage and powder. By formally combining our industry expertise, we will be able to offer customers in the region a wider range of improved and bespoke solutions and services. We foresee a seamless integration and continued growth going forward.”

Macro Automation will continue to service its existing customer base from Auckland, and all managers and employees will remain with the company.
