tna solutions Pty Ltd

Wednesday, 11 November, 2015

tna has announced the acquisition of Unique Solutions, a provider of value-added inserts and onserts which are dispensed and/or applied using Unique Solutions’ range of inserting and labelling equipment.

The acquisition gives tna access to Unique Solutions’ turnkey In-Pak and On-Pak programs utilising the company’s continuous perforated bandolier (CPB) technology. These projects see Unique Solutions liaising with the customer’s marketing group, engineering staff and procurement department to create a promotional or value-added program using food-grade inks to print coupons and/or labels and overwrapping 2D or 3D inserts using barrier films for direct food contact.

Alf Taylor, CEO of tna, commented, “Unique Solutions was the obvious choice for us. Their solutions are easily integrated into our own packaging equipment and the company’s focus on partnership and high-performance equipment complements our own values and commitment to being much more than just a supplier to our customers.”

Using its CPB technology, Unique Solutions’ equipment inserts value-added two-dimensional (eg, coupons, magnets and tattoos) and three-dimensional items (eg, toys, scoops and dry or liquid-filled sachets) into primary packaging at speeds up to 1000 pieces/min with accuracy of 99.9%.

“The food industry changes at such a rapid pace, and product innovation is an absolute must if you want to stay competitive,” added Taylor. “We were therefore keen to expand our services in the promotional and value-add packaging arena.”
