Turbo Systems Aquires FP Packaging Machinery
Turbo Systems is very pleased to announce its recent acquisition of the rights to manufacture the entire range of FP Packaging Machinery's de-nesting and associated equipment at Turbo's Hull factory. Along with new equipment manufacture, Turbo looks forward to supporting FP's many existing clients by providing after sales service, spares, service engineering and modifications to existing machinery.
FP customers will benefit from the wide range of expertise and skills available at the Turbo factory, which has had ISO 1900 / 2001 Accreditation since 2003 and employs 80 people encompassing a wide range of in-house engineering design and manufacturing capabilities. Customers will also benefit for Turbo's proven ability to manage major turnkey projects with engineering and production capacity significantly higher than was previously available to FP.
Turbo Systems was formed in 1954 and have been successfully designing; manufacturing and installing food processing equipment for several industry sectors. Acquisition will expand the full range of products.
Former FP Managing Director, Charles Guest, joins Turbo as Technical Sales Director for the FP product range, bringing 14 years experience as a Director of FP to ensure complete continuity for booth the commercial and technical support of the range. Charles says that this is a major step forward as there is a very good synergy between the products on both the technical and commercial fronts and on this basis we look forward to offering a well developed and complete range of machinery with the benefits of efficient assembly processes and larger scale buying of parts and materials afforded by the existing Turbo business.
UK Sales Manager, Clive Butcher, is confident that increased sales will come from the FP Systems range of container de-nesting machinery, which will form an excellent compliment to the extensive Turbo Systems product range covering the confectionary, bakery, biscuit, fruit, vegetables, dairy, ready meals, pharmaceutical, cosmetic and hardware industries.
