Investment in engineering excellence to validate power products
FG Wilson has opened a new Engineering Centre of Excellence at its manufacturing facility in Larne, Northern Ireland - the result of $26mn investment in advanced testing and validation facilities. This will not only significantly improve FG Wilson's product validation process but is intended also to enable the company to develop better products, faster and quicker than its competition.
The Duke of York, acting as UK representative for International Trade and Investment, opened the multi-million dollar investment.
Dr. Mark Sweeney, FG Wilson Managing Director commented, "This is an extremely important investment for FG Wilson. It will enhance sustainability at the company, one of our major corporate objectives, by streamlining the product development process and improving the performance and efficiency of our generator sets."
During his tour of the company, the Duke of York met staff involved in product validation, technical development and services engineering before unveiling a plaque which commemorates the opening of the Engineering Centre of Excellence.
