At ARC Specialties we believe it’s important to share with those around us. That’s the purpose of our monthly First Friday event. It’s an opportunity to join us and share SMILES, KNOWLEDGE, FOOD, & MORE.
Just in case you missed it…We held our monthly First Friday event where we get to showcase some of what’s new at ARC Specialties, and more importantly, get to network and share SMILES, KNOWLEDGE, and FOOD with our colleagues and clientele. This past First Friday we had an array of guests from different industries such as oil and gas, sensor solutions, welding equipment manufacturers, podcasters, etc…
This month brought in one of the recipients of the Ron Whitman Scholarship, Olivia Russell. Olivia is a materials joining/welding engineering junior at LeTourneau University, in Longview, Texas. Ron Whitman was a LeTourneau alumnus who taught and inspired our president, Dan Allford, back in the ’70s. To honor Ron, ARC Specialties endowed this scholarship. This was only possible thanks to the American Welding Society, which matched and administered the scholarship.
Tom Richardson gave an excellent presentation on one of our recent projects, a “Robotic Fiberglass Cutting System.”
We would like to thank our sponsor for this month’s First Friday: Employers Resource Group.
If you are interested in attending and/or even sponsoring next month’s First Friday, contact Johnny Tyler and we will get you signed up.
We hope to see you at one of the next upcoming First Fridays.
