Passion for improvement
Raymond McLaren’s innate drive to improve the way things work has led him to develop an innovative range of ropes and slings that are exported around the world.
When we met Raymond McLaren, the founder and owner of Amdromeda Industries, he was excited about an upcoming visit to the ITER (International Thermonuclear Experimental Reactor). ITER is an international nuclear fusion research and engineering megaproject, which will be the world’s largest magnetic confinement plasma physics experiment. It is an experimental tokamak nuclear fusion reactor built next to the Cadarache facility in Saint-Paul-lès-Durance, in Provence in southern France.
“I learned about thermodynamics as a young man and it sparked my interest in power,” Raymond says. “I am very interested in energy – wind and solar energy is too diffuse – we really need concentration and I am fascinated by nuclear fusion.”
