tna, a leading supplier of food processing and packaging solutions, continues to grow its global footprint with the opening of a new Japan office and the launch of a brand new Japanese website.

Located in central Tokyo in the Marunouchi district, tna’s new office will host technical support and sales staff to directly support the Japanese market with a greater choice of leading-edge food technology solutions and innovation.

tna’s Japanese operations will be headed up by Shuntaro Yamasaki, who has recently joined the business as general manager - tna Japan k.k. and who will be instrumental in supporting local food manufacturers with tna’s vast array of start-to-finish solutions - from processing, cooling, coating, distribution, seasoning, weighing, bagging, inserting and labelling, metal detection, verification, controls systems all the way to end-of-line equipment.

Paul Webster, general manager at tna Asia:

“We’re absolutely thrilled to announce the opening of our first on-the-ground office in Japan.”

“We’ve been operating in the Japanese market for a couple of years now and have been able to build up a solid local customer base.”

“However, as tna has grown and added more brands to its portfolio, so has the interest in our expanding range of turnkey solutions and we felt it was time to further establish our local presence in such a highly innovative and flourishing market.”

“The opening of tna Japan k.k. is an exciting milestone for us and yet another important step in our global expansion strategy, which now consists of 30 offices around the world.”
Joining tna as general manager for Japan, Shuntaro Yamasaki brings with him over eight years of experience in the packaging and processing industry.
