Welding winner in Wales

Huntingdon Fusion Techniques has reported ongoing success since moving to west Wales from Cambridgeshire


Welding technology company Huntingdon Fusion Techniques has reported ongoing success since moving to west Wales from Cambridgeshire six years ago.



Turnover and staff levels have doubled in the last two years as the company, which manufactures welding ancillaries, has continued its innovative development programme.



The company’s patented device for preventing contamination during welding, Quick Purge, provides efficient and low cost inert gas coverage during the welding of pipes. The equipment has been sold extensively to pipeline constructors across the globe, but in particular to aid the fabrication of the massive natural gas pipeline currently under construction from Milford Haven and across Wales.



Managing director Darren Sewell praised his staff for rising to the challenge of meeting the specialised requirements of the welding industry, saying: ‘Credit for our continued progress has to go to the entire team at HFT who have worked so hard throughout the period. Our disciplined commitment to our customers is a primary consideration for us and we feel sure that the personal support we are able to give them all has played a major part in our success.’
