Rugby fans out there may spot the Prestige Aluminium Bi-folding Doors logo adorning the back of Sale Sharks’ new home and away shirts.
As part of our summer 2014 launch, we signed a two-season deal to become an Official Partner and kit sponsor of the Club. We are also sponsoring the team’s Director of Rugby, Steve Diamond, or ‘Dimes’.
As a Lancashire-based manufacturer, we are proud to support the North West’s only Aviva Premiership Rugby team at what is a very exciting time for the sport with England set to host the Rugby World Cup in 2015.
There are lots of synergies between rugby and our aluminium bi-folding doors, such as strength, performance and security.
Like the most successful rugby teams, our doors are tough and built to be unbeaten. They are so strong, secure and attack-proof that they are the only commercially available type currently recommended by the Association of Chief Police Officers’ Secured by Design initiative for protecting homes and commercial premises against crime.
Behind every great team is also a strong leader like ‘Dimes’. Having regularly attended Sale Sharks’ games over the years, our management team has been fortunate to meet Steve Diamond on a number of occasions. We admire his commitment and passion for the sport and found his personality, as well as his keen interest in property development, were a close match to our own.
Andrew Lamb, Head of Commercial Sales at Sale Sharks, commented: “We are delighted to secure a two-year partnership with Prestige Aluminium Bi-folding Doors. The partnership with Sale Sharks will see the Prestige brand delivered across the North West and beyond, at an extremely exciting time for the club. We look forward to working closely with Prestige as we form a strong alliance over the next two years.”
