Fusion Tech Welcomes New Smokehouse Technology Manager & Food Scientist

Fusion Tech welcomes Nick Brown, Smokehouse Technology Manager and Food Scientist to the team.

Nick holds a Masters Degree in Meat Science from the University of Nebraska – Lincoln, specializing in processed meats. He has worked as a food scientist in the cooked meats division for some of the world’s largest meat processing companies and learned under some of the best in the industry around thermal processing, product development, manufacturing, process control, and more.

As the Smokehouse Technology Manager and Food Scientist, Nick will be teaching customers basic meat science in consultations and our short courses, as well as helping to diagnose and provide solutions for their smokehouse and processing challenges.

Nick is excited to be joining Fusion Tech, saying…

“Fusion Tech has a very good product portfolio and technologies I wholeheartedly believe in and allows discussions with customers much easier. Also Fusion Tech has invested into an Innovation Center which allows me to test ideas and make adjustments to continue my own education and development along with sharing those findings with customers and the rest of the Fusion Tech Team.”

When he’s not busy solving client challenges, Nick spends time on a small family ranch in southwest Oklahoma, running a small herd of registered Full Blood Fleckvieh Simmental Cattle. He enjoys being outdoors doing things like hiking, hunting, long-range shooting, and wildlife habitat improvement. He also enjoys nice restaurants, theater shows, museums, and city life.

If you’re looking to improve your smokehouse technology or have a processing issue you just can’t solve, contact us to set up an appointment with Nick. He’s more than happy to help figure out a solution with you.
