The partnership will provide Grant with the opportunity to increase the profile of its range of heating products. Perimeter board advertising will be erected at the team’s home ground, The Rec, where matches are regularly televised, increasing local and national brand awareness. The ground has a crowd capacity of 12,200 and 16 home fixtures have been confirmed for the season.
The 2015/16 season is a momentous one for Bath Rugby as the club is celebrating its 150th anniversary this year. This occasion neatly precedes a significant landmark for Grant UK who will be celebrating a 20th birthday in 2016. Since establishing in 1865, Bath Rugby has been known as one of the most prestigious clubs worldwide and, throughout their history, they have topped European and national tournaments. Meanwhile, Grant has been providing products to the heating market for nearly four decades, starting with Grant Engineering of Ireland, and expanding with Grant UK in 1995.
The company is based in Devizes, Wiltshire, which is only a short drive from the city of Bath.
Anna Wakefield, marketing manager for Grant UK commented: “We are honoured to have been given the opportunity to support a club whose reputation is held so highly both locally and further afield. The strong teamwork amongst the players, which is so clear to see when they step onto the field, is just one of the club’s characteristics which Grant values. Bath Rugby’s professionalism, success, and undeniable resolve to be the best in their game are additional values which we as a company share.”
