New machines for US manufacturing space.

FRYING and packaging machines have been upgraded by American crisps brand Mister Bee which was acquired by the West Virginia Potato Chip Company over a decade ago.

Following a redesign of its manufacturing space, a new TNA Robag 3ci vertical form filling and sealing machine has been installed which Mister Bee President Mary Anne Ketelsen says has vastly improved output.

In a recent interview with 'Snacks' she said: "Previous machinery could only run 20-25bpm, whereas now my new TNA machines, I can run 100-115bpm."
