Fox Solutions of McAllen, TX, partners with machinery market leader NEWTEC to expand firm’s product line

A well-known player in the fresh produce packing equipment industry, Fox Solutions made a major move Oct. 9 to increase its market share and expand its already extensive product line with the addition of the NEWTEC line of state-of-the-art fresh produce packing equipment.

Fox already represents well-known brands like Haith, Verbruggen, H-tech, JMC, Saclark and ABV. The addition of the NEWTEC line will expand those offerings dramatically.

Fox Solutions General Manager Ed Savigny is looking forward to sharing the new lineup at the Produce Marketing Association Fresh Summit in New Orleans Oct. 17-19.
