Alan Ransom of Net-Tex Industries has won the 2011 annual Connecting Industry circulation prize draw.

Ransom’s prize – the latest Apple iPod Touch – was presented to him by Datateam’s managing editor, Neil Mead, at the Net-Tex Industries headquarters in Hoo Marina, Kent. Alan is a regular reader of Factory Equipment magazine and finds the content “an interesting and useful read” that helps in his role of purchasing manager.

Formed in 1983, Net-Tex was originally geared to service the needs of the veterinary and agricultural industry with high technology solutions, nutrition and animal husbandry equipment products. The company’s aerosol range for niche markets has now expanded to include general automotive, fire and stove, equestrian products and an insecticide range.

Net-Tex has invested in full laboratory facilities and expanded its chemical and aerosol division. This enables its technical chemists to carry out extensive research and development. Structured to cater for contract manufacturing in any industry, the company can plan all aspects of a product from initial consultation, branded product formulation, artwork origination to packaging presentation. Facilities include the dedicated production of liquids, creams/pastes, greases, nutritional and industrial powders, aerosols, silk- screen printing (aerosols) and labelling.
