As the second largest¹ market in the global food industry, the Americas food industry is projected to grow by $300¹ billion between 2022 and 2027. Where manufacturers are looking to automation to reduce downtime and rework, AutoCoding can offer a solution to get things right the first time, eliminating errors and recalls due to incorrect packaging or date coding.

“We are excited to have Keith join the US team. Keith’s prior experience working for specialized technology companies and his genuine interest to listen to our customers and advise on the best solution, makes him a huge asset to our team and our growing business,” said Barrie Fallon, VP Operations – AutoCoding North America.

With a background in mechanical engineering and experience working in controlled manufacturing environments, Keith also holds an MBA in Data Analytics.

“I am very excited to share AutoCoding System’s core product throughout North America to help food and beverage manufacturers prevent recalls and eliminate errors from the packaging line. I’m from the Connecticut, New York area – one of the country’s largest hubs of food and beverage production and distribution. I’m eager to talk about AutoCoding’s data acquisition, reporting, and visualization modules as I know how beneficial data is in driving decisions and improving efficiencies. It’s important to me that human error is eliminated, and that consumer safety is improved, which is the whole premise of an AutoCoding system,” explained Keith.

Keith will be attending several trade shows to introduce himself to the industry and showcase AutoCoding’s latest offerings.  Visit the following shows and meet Keith in person at AAMP 1-3 August, IFPA 18-19 October, and Pack Expo Chicago 3-6 November.
