Meet the team ACE Plastics, Egypt
Fusion Group’s investment in ACE Plastics, Egypt, has led to a dramatic increase in manufacturing floor space, new machinery and an increase in employment to add to its growing workforce. 03-08-2021
We wanted to take this opportunity to introduce some members of the ACE Plastic team and give an insight into their lives.
We recently introduced General Manager Andy Horner as he celebrated 25 years of working for Fusion Group. Andy relocated to Egypt in October 2020 and wanted the challenge of moving overseas to a manufacturing plant that he could help develop and put his own stamp on.
Andy thinks its ‘amazing’ that he has had the privilege of being involved in so many positive changes over the years that has seen Fusion evolve from a small family run business into a globally recognised solutions provider.
You can check out Andy’s story here and below are some of the team who support him in ACE Plastics.
