Food packaging company tna has acquired Oregon-based FOODesign, expanding its portfolio to offer manufacturers a range of processing solutions. FOODesign has more than 20 years’ experience in design, installation and service for total food processing plants.

The acquisition enables tna to offer a variety of FOODesign fryers and cookers, including kettle batch fryers, continuous fryers, baking and toasting ovens and specialty roasting equipment. The systems are suitable for use across a wide range of applications including meat, poultry, seafood, bakery, confectionery and snack foods.

“This move underlines our commitment to servicing our customers’ growing needs for flexible and efficient turnkey solutions,” said Michael Green, tna’s managing director.

“With FOODesign providing equipment to many of the top 100 food processing companies in the world, the acquisition gives tna access to all the necessary skills, networks, market knowledge and relationships to provide customers with a new choice in processing equipment - from fryers and feed systems through to packaging and controls. We are confident that we can add value to our customers’ entire line and achieve significant economies of scale.”

The acquisition is effective from 1 May 2014. FOODesign will retain its brand and be integrated into the tna group.
