AUSPACK is one of the major trade shows that celebrates forty years of bringing “revolutionary innovations” to market.
Nadia and Alf Taylor, tna is reaffirming its commitment to people, the planet and the prosperity of the local communities and regions in which it operates.
The company changed the face of food packaging in 1985 with the launch of its flagship solution – the tna robag vertical form fill and seal (VFFS) packaging system. Today, tna’s over 500 employees have installed more than 14,000 advanced processing and packaging systems worldwide.
Alf Taylor, CEO and managing director at tna solutions comments: “A lot has changed over the last four decades; We have expanded our family of brands with the acquisition of leading processing names like FOODesign, Florigo and NID, and added a fully integrated snack and confectionery processing line to our list of industry-firsts.
“One thing that hasn’t changed though, is our positive outlook and dedication to serving the needs of our customers.”
The organisation’s latest innovation – the Tna robag FX 3e – was launched late last year (and will be on show at AUSPACK on stand G190), and more exciting developments in food processing, conveying and packaging systems are planned for the coming year.
Stepping into the future
As the company enters a new era, its global team of experts is looking forward to building a fresh, innovative and digitally-forward future.
As part of its commitment to customer-focused progress, tna is launching ‘tna rethinks’ – a new series of blogs and web articles giving the experts and platform to share their perspective on today’s top industry trends and packaging landscape.
“With the wealth of forty years’ industry-leading experience behind us, we’re forging ahead into a new chapter,” adds Alf Taylor. “We will continue to embrace the future, while breaking down the complexities of smart systems, consumer trends and regulatory changes with straight-forward, tailored advice. It’s this approach that has made it the number one choice for thousands of operators and engineers worldwide. ”
Giving back, paying forward
In parallel to its technical breakthroughs, tna’s sustained success can be attributed to a people-first approach.
Nadia Taylor, co-founder and director at tna solutions, comments, “Giving back – to the larger international community – has always been non-negotiable for us. This dedication ultimately led to the creation of our humanitarian organization, the Nadia and Alf Taylor Foundation.
“Over the last 20 years, the Foundation has helped transform the lives of over 20,000 people across 39 countries through over 150 grassroot organizations. We are actively working towards improving the lives of the most vulnerable in society, supporting children through education, social enterprise, healthcare, human rights and social welfare initiatives. ”
People, planet and prosperity
In its fortieth year, tna is celebrating its own achievements and showcasing the philanthropic achievements of the Foundation through a series of events, across the globe. “These are events with a purpose,” continues Nadia.
“The core aim here aligns with our three main motivations as a business – People, Planet and Prosperity. By encouraging the development of healthy, fulfilling and sustainable livelihoods across different regions, we have the largest industry events benefiting more than just those who attend them. We want to get people first this trade show season! ”
