Fengate Fasteners Golf Day

Sarah Horden with her winning team

At RML we recognise that taking time to maintain lasting working relationships with our suppliers, customers and partners is just as essential as the everyday operations of the business. As we have experienced such significant growth, it has never been more important to network and ensure that our newly improved capabilities are communicated.

With this in mind, our Head of Joist Design Sarah Horden jumped at the chance to be involved in a golf day hosted by metal work suppliers Fengate Fasteners. Sarah was particularly eager to build on her contacts within the industry, but in a more relaxed – and slightly competitive – environment.

We have been working with Fengate Fasteners for over 15 years in the supply of metal hangers that are utilised for both our floor joists and trusses. Although the day was a chance to reconnect with familiar faces, Sarah was pleased to have the chance to meet people that work for companies less known to her such as the golf day sponsors Simpson Strong-Tie.

Despite the inevitable unpredictability of British weather on the day, Sarah felt particularly proud to be the first woman to play and win the event with her team on 89 points. Ensuring that women are well represented in a mostly male dominated industry is something RML have a particular area of interest in so news such as this is always well received. As well as taking home a pair of golf shoes as part of her winnings, the networking experience the day provided was an all round success.
