Particular interest was shown for friction stir welding, as Yesilova are major suppliers of Al extrusions.
Yesilova Holding Chairman, Mr Ali Ihsan Yesilova was very impressed with the TWI site and the examples he was shown.
There were also discussions around the opportunities for collaborative applications for European funding.
