Tong strengthens Export success with launch of Tong USA division
Tong Engineering, UK manufacturer of advanced potato and vegetable handling equipment, is pleased to announce International expansion with the opening of a new Tong USA spares, service and sales facility based in Fremont, Michigan.
This latest venture comes as part of the company’s wider export strategy and will make Tong’s complete range of equipment even more accessible to the USA potato and vegetable industry.
“We have been doing business in the USA for many years,” explains Edward Tong, Managing Director at Tong Engineering. “However, over the last couple of years business in the USA has significantly increased, meaning more frequent visits to the USA; visiting customers and exhibiting at USA potato and vegetable events.”
“With this in mind, alongside the potential to better service and expand our business in the USA, we felt it was now time to have a physical presence in the market,” says Edward. “We are very pleased to announce the opening of the dedicated new Tong USA facility; cementing our commitment to the market.”
The new Tong USA office in Fremont will provide additional support to Tong US customers; strengthening spares and service backup with a wide range of spare parts available with a quick turnaround when they are needed the most.
“The Fremont-based office brings us a place to meet with customers who operate locally, and a base from which we will continue to visit our customers located all over the USA,” explains Edward. “The new Tong USA office team will also be on hand at the office to take care of sales, spares and service enquiries for all US customers.”
“We are very excited about this new venture and welcome existing and new Tong customers in the USA to pick up the phone and chat to the Tong USA team to discuss any current and future potato and vegetable handling requirements they have, however large or small.”
