TNA, a leading supplier of turn-key integrated packaging and processing solutions for food production companies, and Kiremko, a manufacturer of high quality food processing equipment for amongst others the potato industry, have formed a strategic alliance designed to provide high quality turn-key integrated solutions for complete packaging and processing for the potato snack food industry.
TNA and Kiremko believe the alliance will allow clients to reduce time spent sourcing and procuring snack food packaging and processing equipment and will increase manufacturing efficiencies by bringing together Kiremko’s 40 years of experience in the potato processing industry with TNA’s 25 years of expertise in food packaging. The market driven alliance addresses a need in the marketplace to provide the customer a good choice in their turn-key integrated packaging and processing requirements.
The integration of TNA and Kiremko’s technologies will be two-fold. Kiremko and TNA will combine engineering abilities to fully integrate complete field-to-packaging solutions for customers. Secondly, the combined sales and marketing operation will integrate support service and engineering expertise to provide seamless customer support and give customers access to local and regional experts.
According to Kiremko, it is looking forward to being able to provide the market integrated potato snack food solutions. TNA has strengths in vertical packaging and has a reputation for solid innovative engineering combined with good sales and service force. Kiremko’s solid knowledge of the processing industry and specialised potato processing equipment fits well with TNA. The opportunity created by this alliance to provide customers with quality turn-key integrated solutions is good for both TNA and Kiremko and their customers.
According to TNA, the areas of expertise compliment well in this partnership. Kiremko has been one of the experts in the processing of potatoes into French fries, chips, and flakes from field through manufacturing for over 40 years. Kiremko has developed precise systems for all of the potato industry and move a large amount of finished potato product annually. This has given Kiremko a good understanding of the potato chips industry. TNA’s expertise in snack food packaging compliments Kiremko’s industry knowledge and makes this alliance a logical choice for this market.
Potato and vegetable processing machines
Kiremko's processing technology includes the design and manufacture of machines for: destoning, washing, peeling, blanching, cooking, forming, cutting, drying, frying, pasteurising, sterilising, cooling, freezing, grading as well as optical sorting, transport, distribution, weighing and packaging. Kiremko can deliver it all, from the infeed of the product as raw material up to the outfeed as ready-made, packed final product. The individual machines form a chain in which every link is an example of inventiveness and reliability.
Custom made food processing equipment
Kiremko supplies a range of good machines, but in several cases manufactures machines or complete production lines, which are custom made to the wishes of the client. This is the major strength of Kiremko, the more complicated the wishes of the client, the more the manufacturer has to prove through know-how, engineering, quality, inventiveness and a good pre- and after-sales service. Kiremko has all of these qualities since it was established in 1965.
