tna opens European manufacturing hub in Birmingham, U.K.

April 11, 2013

Tna, Sydney, opens a European manufacturing hub in Birmingham, U.K., at one of its existing sites to further expand its global manufacturing facilities and provide a logistical base for sales, technical service and project management capabilities in Europe.

With two well-established manufacturing sites in Australia and China, the hub will create a strategic site closer to tna’s European customers, reduce lead times and further enhance service. The 50,000-sq.ft. Birmingham facility 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.

Employing about 65 people, the site will create a number of new jobs in the area, both in the manufacturing facility and offices. Annual cash injection in the region is set to reach 15 million pounds (approximately $23 million) per annum and projected to double in the next three to five years.

“We are delighted to be opening our new European Manufacturing Hub in Birmingham,” says general manager-Europe Tim Moulsdale. “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 revolutionary products in addition to offering enhanced technical support, sales and related services to our customers here and across the globe.”

With a network of 25 offices worldwide, the new unit forms part of tna’s global expansion strategy and represents just one of a number of office openings for the company in 2013.
