Fusion Tech worked with us to take our current operation of processing frozen beef trim blocks that took 2 shifts and 22 employees to reach our product goals and reduced it to a 1 shift operation manned by 7 people. They designed a new piece of equipment for us that took our semi-frozen trim blocks and gently broke them up so we could treat each piece to eliminate any bacteria. We told them what we needed the system to do, and they went to work researching options and designing a system that met our needs and saved us time and money. We are able to process the same amount of product in 1 shift that we did in two. I would highly recommend working with the team at Fusion Tech.
I’ve been in the meat industry for 33 years and have used all kinds of equipment, but now I’m a Cove by Fusion Tech customer for life. I have used Enviro-Pak horizontal smokehouses, Alkar smokehouses, as well as others, and nothing compares to the Cove Smokehouses.
I have an older 2-Truck Alkar smokehouse that was retrofitted with the Cove Total-Flow-Control (TFC) airflow system. With the TFC system, now I can use that smokehouse for all of my jerky products. The TFC allows me to concentrate the airflow virtually anywhere I want in the oven, so it allows me to put more capacity on a rack and still maintain excellent consistency.
I basically get two smokehouses in one with the Cove Smokehouse by Fusion Tech, a horizontal and a vertical smokehouse. The Cove gives me better consistency and 20% more capacity per rack.
Fusion Tech designed an impressive adjustable floor stand that met our needs for durability, sanitation, and a cleanable non-slip surface. These stands have endured a 2 shift operation since 2008 and are still in great condition.
Our experience in working with Fusion Tech has been one of professionalism, quality, and willingness to adapt to our customer’s needs. By working closely with production managers and maintenance, Fusion Tech was able to create a high-bred crossover of a variety of different carts resulting in a cart that was able to move product in a safe clean and efficient manner. Their 3-D modeling really allow the customer to see the finished product before it was even produced, allowing them to make necessary changes before production. The relationship we have built between our two companies is allowing us to offer customized solutions that we may not have been able to offer in the past.
Fusion Tech designed, manufactured, and installed a number of custom platforms, crossovers, and access catwalks for a box line addition to a large beef processing client of mine. These platforms, crossovers, and catwalks were designed to integrate perfectly with the rest of the equipment they designed. All of the platforms were coated with a heavy duty anti-slip application that has held up to rigorous use and cleans easily during the plant’s sanitation process.
Thank you for providing such great service and quality equipment for the water jet project.
Nick is a top notch manager and a pleasure to work with. His work ethics and commitment to quality are commendable. Having Jeremy in the office allowed us to communicate ideas through out the project, and I am very impressed with Jeremy’s computer skills and vision of equipment assembly.
I received positive comments from management on the project layout, installation, and start-up.
