Taranaki Rugby is excited to announce the re-signing of major partners Atlas Professionals and TSB. The companies join principle partner Yarrows and fellow major partners, the Devon Hotel and Canterbury Clothing Company, to form a key partnership ahead of the 2019 season.
Atlas Professionals, which is a dependable service provider in the energy and marine industries, has committed to the end of 2020.
David Bishop, Manager of Atlas Professionals New Zealand, said the company is extremely pleased to be re-committing to Taranaki Rugby which includes introducing new initiatives.
“Our partnership with the rugby union, along with our continued support to the local community, is very important to us. Atlas Professionals NZ have been long standing advocates for growing mental health awareness and wellbeing and are looking forward to working with the TRFU this coming year to develop some new exciting initiatives to raise awareness in the community”.
TSB, which is 100% New Zealand owned and proud of its Taranaki roots, has signed on until the end of the year. “TSB is proud to support sport in our Taranaki community,” says Justine St John, TSB General Manager Marketing and Customer Experience. “We’ll be cheering for our local team every time they hit the field this year."
Taranaki Rugby Chief Executive Jeremy Parkinson is delighted that both Atlas Professionals and TSB have re-committed to the union. “We really appreciate the support from Atlas Professionals and TSB. They share similar values to ours and are fully involved in the community”. Taranaki Rugby says goodbye to long-time sponsor Shuk Engineering who has partnered the Union for the last 12 years.
Taranaki Rugby is continuing to work on an offering for the season at Yarrow Stadium, which will include sideline seating for season members and fans including corporate hosting; an announcement on these details will be made in the near future once these arrangements are finalised.
