tna, a packaging solutions specialist, has opened a new European manufacturing hub in Birmingham, United Kingdom. This development at one of the company’s existing sites further expands tna’s global manufacturing facilities, and provides a logistical base for its sales, technical service and project management capabilities in Europe.
With two manufacturing sites in Australia and China, the new hub creates a strategic site closer to tna’s European customers, reducing lead-times and further enhancing the company’s ability to provide service. The 50,000-sq-ft facility in Birmingham represents a significant investment in the European market, and product output is expected to reach 30% of all tna’s capital equipment from around the world. Providing employment for around 65 people, the site will create a number of new jobs in the area, both in the manufacturing facility and the offices.
“We are delighted to be opening our new European manufacturing hub in Birmingham. At tna, we’re renowned for our high level of service and world class products, and are dedicated to constantly improving our capabilities to meet our customers’ needs. Being closer to our customers plays a fundamental part in this. Through our new production facility in Europe, we can now manufacture a large proportion of our products in addition to offering enhanced technical support, sales, and related services to our customers here and across the globe,” said Tim Moulsdale, General Manager Europe, tna.
