Student Testimonials:

Emmy Zimmerman, Technical OQ Fusion Trainer with Groebner

"The training received at George Fisher has been invaluable to our knowledge and skillset as trainers in the natural gas field. As trainers we have been able to take the samples created to show as what does and does not make a good fusion. As trainers the training received has made us better educators."

Heather Brown, OQ Account Manager with Gajeske, Inc.

"Gajeske, Inc. has been a long time purchaser and trainer of George Fischer products. Recently, we had some new hires needing training and it was super easy and efficient working with the GF team to get everything set up and scheduled. They are quick in their responses and my team had a great time in Shawnee. I think one of them even won at the casino, which made it even better for them. I enjoy the working relationship that we have and that is such a plus in this industry to know that we will be taken care of."

Sam Messenger, Corporate Trainer with ASTAR, Inc.

"As an individual that knows the world of plastic fusion in many aspects, I was very impressed with the professionalism and outstanding training that I received while attending Georg Fischer Central Plastics internal training course. The staff was very gracious and the Trainers were very knowledgeable in plastic fusion technology. They went above and beyond to please us and treated us like family. As a trainer and certifier for ASTAR, Inc. I would highly recommend companies send their trainers and certifiers to Georg Fischer for training. The plant tour, while there, was an added bonus. These guys have a good wrap on the industry."

Marcus Rinke, Fusion Equipment Specialist with Core & Main LP

"I attended the Feb 4th LDC training class at GF Central Plastics. It was my first time visiting the plant and being in the Innovation Central Training Facility. Having worked with their electrofusion equipment and products for 14 years I found the experience very informative. The training facility is setup extremely well and allows for people to actually see all the different types of products applied in real work applications. The hands-on training area is setup very nice and I took away some new techniques even after doing it for so many years. I also found the burst destructive test and plant tour to be a great part of the experience as well."
