As 2015 draws to a close, we take a look back at the successes for FCL Organisation this year and what’s in store for 2016.
Earlier this year saw the launch of the brand new revamped website – www.filtrationcontrol.com. The new website showcases our engine filtration technology, batteries, solutions and components for the commercial vehicle, rail, automotive, marine and industrial sectors worldwide, as well as giving an insight into the company’s history, the people and the locations.
There are now several to purchase filters and components from FCL Organisation. Via our new online shop, via our Amazon shop, via our ebay shop or by talking to one of our sales team on 01604 707762 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Alternatively you can reach out to us via our newly added Live Chat feature on our website.
September saw the annual Coach and Bus Live exhibition at the NEC Birmingham. The sell-out 2015 event was a resounding success, with over 200 exhibitors & more than 90 vehicles on display. Our stand created a buzz over the two day show with crowds gathering to participate in the virtual golf tournament for the chance to win a bottle of champagne.
Our guest of honour, Toby Somers, also created a buzz with his very own fan club on the final day of the event, he even had a job offer from Bus and Coach Buyer for the future! Dave Heptinstall, Engineering Director at Stagecoach, presented Toby with a 12 month bus pass, a Corgi Model and thoughtfully had created a camping chair in Stagecoach Livery. According to Toby Somers it was “the best day ever!”
Throughout the year, FCL and FCSL have won several major contracts including a 3 year contract to supply antifreeze to the Stagecoach Group.
Looking Ahead to 2016
With 2016 fast approaching, the future looks bright for FCL having been selected as the exclusive distributer of a fuel saving device with fuel savings of up to 7% and with new product launches such as the Donaldson DPF Cleaner, we will be introducing several cost effective products to help you keep your fleet efficient in 2016! In addition to this we will also be launching some of our own branded products to the market.
We will be saying goodbye to one of our long standing members of staff, Mark Russell, after 11 years of working at FCL. He is leaving in February to volunteer full time with his wife Laura in Malawi. We wish him good luck and safe travels.
Work has already started on our online portal for our clients to order and check stock for parts they regularly purchase and we hope to have this live in early 2016.
The larger of the bus and coach exhibitions, the Euro Bus Expo, will be taking place over 3 days in November 2016. FCL will be returning with our golf simulator, giving visitors another chance to win the coveted golf tournament prize! There is plenty of time to start practicing! In the evening we will again, be hosting our Route One Awards pre-drinks reception at our exclusive invitation only platinum lounge, which was a real success this year.
We would like to wish all our clients a very Happy New Year from all at FCL Organisation. We are looking forward to seeing what 2016 brings!
