This development will provide existing and potential customers with the additional confidence that naturally comes from the presence of localized sales and service personnel. To direct this endeavor, the ARPAC Group is proud to announce the hiring of Tony Hacker as General Manager. Tony is charged with building the ARPAC Brand throughout the entire European Community along with the regional sales and support organization necessary to support this effort. Tony is an industry veteran and comes to ARPAC with 25 years of capital equipment experience. The majority of Tony's experience was with United Kingdom based Endoline Machinery, a case erector and sealer manufacturer. Tony worked his way up through the business to take over as Managing Director in 2005 having helped the company grow and become a market-leader throughout the UK and overseas. Tony has spent the last two years managing Advanced Food Technology, a UK based division of the Grote Group, a US manufacturer of meat slicing machines and sandwich production systems. Tony was instrumental in transforming that business to better compete in this ever challenging environment. "I first became aware of Arpac through setting up a strategic partnership with Endoline and am therefore very excited about the prospects for bringing such a high-quality and well-proven range into Europe. I have always been impressed by the quality of engineering that goes into Arpac's machines and in particular, in the exceptional features that make them versatile and yet operator-friendly. This unique combination delivers a low cost of ownership, which is ideal for the European market."
