tna, Sydney, has acquired Unique Solutions, Chicago, a provider of inserting and labeling equipment, as well as value-added inserts and onserts. The acquisition gives tna access to Unique Solutions’ turnkey In-Pak and On-Pak programs, which use the company’s continuous perforated bandolier (CPB) technology, and forms part of tna’s ongoing strategy to support food manufacturers worldwide with a full range of packaging and processing solutions from a single source.

“Unique Solutions was the obvious choice for us,” says Alf Taylor, CEO at tna. “Their solutions are easily integrated into our own packaging equipment, and the company’s focus on partnership and high performance equipment complements our own values and commitment to being much more than just a supplier to our customers. We’re extremely excited to welcome Unique Solutions to our growing family of brands and look forward to introducing their services and products to our customers worldwide.”

Joyce Witt and Shayne De La Force“We are very excited to be joining the tna team,” says Joyce Witt (shown), chairman/CEO of Unique Solutions. “After working with tna for many years, becoming part of the company was very easy; it was a natural progression, especially after realizing that together we can bring Unique Solutions to more people in more places. We share the same philosophy that our customers come first and share the same vision of providing complete turnkey solutions. As tna continues to grow, we look forward to being part of their success and are excited that we have the opportunity to help more customers achieve new levels of success, too.”

Unique Solutions will retain its brand and become integrated into the tna group.
