Our March members’ meeting was held at ARCO’s National Distribution Centre, with the focus firmly on innovation and education.
The evening began with refreshments and networking, followed by a round up of the work of the FEO Education group. Our special guests were a group of students from Wilberforce College in Hull, who had recently completed an FEO Masterclass day. Their innovative product idea, Solar Bolt was presented to FEO members before they faced a challenging Q and A session about their business plan.
Thomas Martin, a founder member of FEO then gave a truly inspiring presentation about the work of ARCO and it’s mission to influence industry standards and to develop, source and supply the highest quality products.
The evening continued with an onsite tour, showcasing ARCO’s recent £5m investment in the original £20m site.
Thanks to ARCO, the FEO Education Group and Solar Bolt for helping to make the event inspiring and enjoyable in equal measures.
