According to CEO James Windsor, the decision to open an office in New Zealand was driven by the increasing demand for end of line packaging machinery in the country. "New Zealand has a vibrant food and beverage industry, which is growing rapidly, and we see a significant opportunity to support our customers in the region with our advanced packaging solutions. We are confident that our advanced packaging solutions will help New Zealand manufacturers increase productivity, reduce costs, and improve overall efficiency.
