Fusion Tech Featured in Illinois Country Living Magazine

Fusion Tech Integrated, a custom design and fabrication shop located in Roseville, Illinois, was featured in the September 2018 issue of McDonough Power Cooperative’s Illinois Country Living magazine.

The article focused on Fusion Tech’s story — how we started with three employees in a two car garage and grew to become an international provider of custom designed food processing equipment. As Kelly Hamm, Energy Services Manager at McDonough Power Cooperative, said, “Fusion Tech has such a neat story and we thought it would be interesting to share it.”

Kelly is right, our story is unique. Not many growing international companies have their start on a family farm, using borrowed tractors to move food processing conveyors and other equipment around.

“We never expected our business, based out of garage in the rural part of west-central Illinois to become a brand name known and preferred by some of the biggest names in the food processing industry,” Brandon Bentz, Fusion Tech co-owner, says. “But that’s what we did.”

From our small start on a farm in rural Illinois to making a name for ourselves around the world, Fusion Tech continues to be known for quality, custom fabrication not found anywhere else.

Illinois Country Living is a monthly publication serving the communications needs of the locally owned, not-for-profit electric cooperatives of Illinois. With a circulation of more than 189,000, the magazine informs cooperative members about issues affecting their electric cooperative and the quality of life in rural Illinois.
