Huddersfield Town has teamed up with facilities management firm Orchard FM for an additional two years on its longstanding partnership with the Club, teaming up with FM Energy as dual partners.

Orchard’s estates management service operates an easy to use ticketing system which allows businesses to log maintenance and repairs direct with the Estates Helpdesk. Waste services cover waste strategy, waste management, recycling and environmental compliance. Orchard also operates a comprehensive IT service, from infrastructure planning to desk-side help, handling hardware and software installations, repairs and upgrades. Data services provide enterprise level backup at the company’s Yorkshire data centre.

FM Energy delivers straightforward advice on buying energy to secure the best value contract depending on priorities and usage. The team will manage energy relates queries and check for billing errors as well as advising on efficiency and compliance.

Orchard Facilities Management chairman Gareth Henderson said: “Orchard FM has enjoyed a very long relationship with Huddersfield Town and we are delighted to have signed up to support the club for a further two years.

“Together with FM Energy we are committed to playing an active role in the local community and we will be cheering the team on as they embark on another thrilling Premiership season.”
