‘Many thanks to the Fusion Group for giving our members the opportunity to see for themselves the Company’s extensive and world class manufacturing, test and inspection facilities. I was personally impressed with the level of investment being made on the manufacturing side through the ever increasing use of automation and robotics. Also the testing and inspection regime that exists from the delivery of the raw material through to temperature, hydrostatic and destructive testing of the finished product was truly impressive. A really interesting and informative experience. Thanks again’
