MOROCCO – FPS Food Process Solutions (“FPS”), a global leader in turn-key freezing and cooling equipment, has inaugurated its new Middle East/Africa (MEA) office in the Tanger Med port facility in Morocco to serve as a regional hub.

The FPS MEA office will enhance logistics and operational efficiency across the Middle East and Africa, offering value-added services such as sales, parts, services, and retrofits to FPS customers.

Jeffrey Chang, President of FPS Food Process Solutions Corp., emphasized that the new location enables both FPS and its clients to leverage world-class hub services and substantial cost savings, thanks to the infrastructure at the Tanger Hub Port Facility.

“Capitalizing on this entry point into the market gives both FPS and customers world-class hub services and huge savings that only the Tanger Hub Port Facility can provide,” he stated.

“By utilizing the Hub’s infrastructure, we can reduce costs, provide greater efficiency, and still meet world-class standards. This will only help to meet customer expectations, a massive benefit for both sides.”

FPS, established in 2010, is making a rapid expansion in major markets around the world. In addition to the Morocco office, FPS revealed the launch of a facility in Monterrey, Mexico, in March.

The 10,600 sq ft (1,000 m2) facility will oversee Latin America markets, including Mexico, Chile, Colombia, Argentina, Ecuador, and Peru, and provide support to offices in Canada and the US.

“Latin America is by and far, a major export market. Our goal is to help drive production capacity as well as hygienic standards to meet global demand,” Chang underscored.

“With exponential growth in the meat, poultry, produce, and bakery sectors, we are in the right place at the right time to meet this demand.”

In December 2022, the company moved into its new corporate headquarters in a high-tech business park in Richmond, British Columbia, Canada. The corporate headquarters was the fifth location to open in the Richmond area, in addition to its existing nearby manufacturing and office locations.

Chang noted that growth has been accelerating year-on-year, and “we have been able to keep on track forecasting additional space needed for global business expansion.”
