Tetra Pak, a leading food processing and packaging solutions provider, has relocated its Cape Town-based staff into one office following the acquisition of Chaswill Process Technology in June this year.
The acquisition added expertise in engineering, automation and project execution resources and supports Tetra Pak’s growth ambition in the region, its ability in providing customers with complete production solutions for food production and its long term commitment to making food safe and available everywhere.
“Having all Cape Town staff located in the same premises allows for better coordination for support of customers in the region and we trust this will enable us to integrate our operations even better and improve quality and efficiency of our work,” says Uros Kepic, MD of Tetra Pak sub-Saharan Africa Cluster (SSA).
The move for all 41 employees occured on August 29, 2011, to 96 Marine Drive, Paarden Eiland.
Chaswill Process Technology is a project management and engineering company, that has, for over 20 years, executed a large number of projects in the beverage, prepared food and dairy industries in South Africa and sub-Sahara Africa.
“Tetra Pak has been strengthened by the Chaswill team allowing us to be even more optimistic about our growth ambitions in SSA not only from processing, but from an overall Tetra Pak point of view,” says Kepic.
