We have just recently got the FAUN Class 70 Heavy Ground Mobility System, HGMS. We tested and trialled the equipment over a number of years before placing an order. During the contract period no problems were experienced, and the manufacturing was of a high quality also delivered ahead of time and within budget. The equipment works simply and without any failure. This equipment has a superior quality and operates effectively in all conditions including extreme climates including Artic conditions. This is excellent equipment for the Swedish Armed Force Engineers.

This was the first time Switzerland had entered into such a co-operation with another country (Sweden) and it was surprising how successful this had been, I am sure this template will be copied on future projects.

It is unusual to have a project delivered ahead of time. Well done to the FAUN TRACKWAY team.

I am pleased to have the opportunity to visit Faun because the company are setting an example for other businesses on how to overcome the current economic downturn by specialising in a niche market. They are not just surviving the recession, they are set to be very competitive when the upturn comes in raising skills levels. It is great to see our grant has been used positively and I wish Faun every success for the future.
Rt Hon Rhodri Morgan First Minister for Wales
The investment and commitment to improving and developing skills levels at FAUN TRACKWAY are to be applauded. The Assembly Government's One Wales agreement has highlighted the significance of a strong skills base and we are investing heavily in the skills and employment agenda. I want to see individuals and industry working closely in partnership to reach our shared goals of a prosperous and well skilled Wales.
John Griffiths AM Deputy Minister for Skills, Welsh Assembly Government
