Meakins had a strange start to Spring...
Around early February, Colin and Andrew got called to a meeting by Robert Hayward, the owner of TEXO Scaffolding & Construction. Thinking it was to do with ARC Promotions & Events Management's Boxing Event, (the company they started in January with Rob Bowyer) which was being held at Five Lakes on April 9th (check out ARC Promotions Facebook page for more information), they left with their events management hats on.
As TEXO were the main sponsor for the evening, alongside JD Contracts, they were just expecting some details from them. However, there was a huge shock in store, as Mr Hayward broke the news that he was the main Sponsor for the Anthony Joshua World Title Fight at the 02 Arena on the same night! When we reminded Rob of the date, he was a little upset, but being the gentleman that he is, he left his sponsorship money in the ARC Event.
Happily for Meakins, TEXO decided to use us for all their merchandise (T-Shirts & Jumpers) and his vehicle graphics! (Pictures below). Rob Hayward needed someone he could trust to give him the best quality at an affordable price. Under the harsh time constraints, he knew who to call!
Meakins achieved everything required of them, with time to spare and to top everything off, when AJ knocked Martin to the canvas, he only sat down on the end of the TEXO logo!
ARC's event went off fantastically and Rob was even kind enough to pay to have thee AJ fight on in the Crowne Plaza hotel to the delight not only of our boxing guests but the rest of the hotel.
Its not everyday you get to produce for a world title fight, so we were proud to deliver, just like AJ on the night!
Thanks again to Texo's Rob Hayward, and JD Contracts.
