Day one gave Fusion’s own staff the opportunity to develop their understanding of products that Fusion Group Companies and its key suppliers manufacture and hire. It was refreshing to talk with all who visited the TT-UK stand as, irrespective of their role within the company, they all took a keen interest in the TT-UK product range and how it links in with Fusion Group’s other products and equipment.
Don Wilkinson, TT-UK Sales Manager, explains the trenchless technology methods available.
Day two - the main event - saw several hundred customers visit the Chesterfield exhibition from all over the country. Many visitors were already familiar with the products on display, however it provided the opportunity to demonstrate the latest cable and pipe laying technology and, in some cases, correct inaccurate perceptions of trenchless technology.
TT-UK exhibited a substantial part of its equipment range including: GRUNDOMAT and accessories, GRUNDOBURST 400G QuickLock rod pipebursting system, Grundex pump, Grundowinch, and Cobra glass fibre rodding reels.
The event was a great success and was a credit to the Fusion staff who contributed many hours of planning and preparation.
TT-UK manufactures and supplies a wide range of trenchless technology equipment, providing the most cost effective method for installing/replacing existing pipes/cables underground without associated traffic disruption and environmental impact.
