Robert Slade,  Whitaker Services MOD Contracts Manager, recently attended a Ministry of Defence Industry Day (DPRTE) at Motorpoint arena in Cardiff. He attended with his invited guest, Mr. Simon Weston OBE. Simon has become very interested in the work that Whitaker Services does in raising awareness of fire retardant textiles, not only supplying the military but in the wider community as a whole. Simon firmly believes that if his contribution in promoting fire retardant textiles saves even one life it’s worth all the effort. He plans to continue working closely with Whitaker Services and the Vision Group both now and in the future.
