With the addition of NAS, TTG now also provides automation equipment for the thermoforming industry and beyond.

Thermoforming Technology Group (TTG, Beaverton, Mich.) has acquired Nalle Automation Systems LLC (NAS, Knoxville, Tenn.). TTG is a manufacturer and servicer of thermoforming equipment used in the high-throughput conversion of plastic sheet into value-add products. The company also provides remanufacturing and rebuild services for injection and blow molding machinery. With the addition of NAS, TTG now also provides automation equipment for the thermoforming industry and beyond.

Founded in 1997, NAS designs and manufactures vertical bagging, shrink wrapping, sleeve wrapping and custom automation packaging machinery to count, stack and package products manufactured from various materials, such as paper, plastic and foam. These machines are used worldwide in the food and beverage packaging markets and includes products created by thermoforming as well as other processes. 

Bob Gordert, director of sales at TTG, commented, "The combined offerings of TTG via Brown, Lyle Industries and NAS allow us to provide the most reliable high-speed machines in the thermoforming marketplace while giving customers a competitive edge in their markets.
