FSW Group Chairman, Dermot Byrne, addressed the audience with a speech talking about the origins of the business, its highs and lows, humour and challenges since starting in Ireland in the 1960s. He also highlighted the main FSW differentiator in the market, namely that the business is a 'technical wholesaler in the engineering business', helping customers solve problems with their knowledge and experience.
Dermot Byrne thanked his customers, saying:
“Without customers, we are nothing. Thank you to you all.”
The guests raised £1,350 on the night for the charity, Marie Curie.
