Orchard back for another two years Date: 23/07/2014

Huddersfield Town is delighted to announce that one of Calderdale’s fastest growing businesses, Orchard Energy, has continued to support the Club for a further two years.

And this year Orchard Energy is literally backing the Terriers with their sponsorship of the Club’s PUMA tailored training wear. The company’s logo will feature on the back, as pictured above by First Team attacker Sean Scannell.

Orchard Energy joined Town’s family of business partners in 2012 and helped the Club improve its energy and waste supply at Canalside Sports Complex.

Since then, Orchard has sponsored the Club’s last two Keep it Up Pedal for Pounds bike rides and have already pledged their support again ahead of the sixth one next year. Also, the company’s branding will feature at every home match throughout the season courtesy of a 3D pitch banner placed to the side of the goal.

Orchard will also have a presence at the Club’s training ground PPG Canalside with two large scale banners.

Orchard Energy MD Gareth Henderson said: “Orchard Energy is pleased to be continuing its valued association with Huddersfield Town for another two years. As a business we strive for excellence, exceptional customer care levels and innovative thinking to aid our clients’ energy management.
Huddersfield Town shares this work ethic, and this makes for a very fruitful partnership.”

Huddersfield Town’s Advertising Manager Mark Jacobs said;

“We are delighted that Orchard has continued its official partnership with the Club. Just like us they are very proud of their Yorkshire roots and Orchard’s ethos fits perfectly with our own; so we can’t wait continue our relationship.

“They have been exceptional supports of the Club and its many offerings since joining in 2012 and this year is now different. They have stepped up their commitment by sponsoring the training tops as well as increasing their presence at the John Smith’s Stadium.”

A major local employer and specialist in helping organisations reduce energy overheads and manage costs; the Orchard group of companies includes energy management consultancy Orchard Energy, environmental waste division Orchard Environmental and IT and telecoms support firm Orchard Networks.

Orchard was launched in Huddersfield in 2004 by Managing Director Gareth Henderson and now has offices in Brighouse, Bradford, Newcastle, Glasgow, Bristol and Cardiff, with plans for further UK expansion in the pipeline.
