Newlands discussed their recent success, their business model, and how the company may be affected by Brexit.

Newlands lodged an Early Day Motion to give recognition to their success as an SME. Commenting on his visit, Newlands said:

“It was great to meet the team at FE Live, and I am proud to have their operation within my constituency of Paisley and Renfrewshire North. FE Live are just one example of Renfrewshire’s diverse economy, which has SME’s in every field as well as leading international companies like Terumo Aortic and Glasgow Airport. I wish them all the best in continuing to provide their leading service across Scotland and beyond”

Ryan Mcilravey, Managing Director from FE Live commented on the visit and recognition received:

“It’s always nice to be recognised for the things you’ve worked hard for but I think our success really just comes from a desire to see our customers receiving the best end product that we can possibly provide. Our mantra has always been to invest in the best equipment and the best people so that we can provide a superior service for the end client. Receiving recognition from the local Chamber of Commerce and in the House of Commons I suppose is testament to the success of that mantra! We’re excited about what’s coming next however with our recent investment yet again in the latest technology from d&b audiotechnik and the year ahead is already looking very busy. Our customer base is so diverse from small scale corporate events to huge arena shows – this diversity arguably presents our biggest challenge.

“It’s one that we love to meet head on though as we provide the best service that we possibly can for all of our customers.”
