“BRAND” NEW SPONSOR FOR HUDDERSFIELD TOWN Date: 16/03/2016

One of Calderdale’s best known business names, Orchard, has teamed up with Huddersfield Town in a new corporate partnership deal that will showcase the firm’s rebrand to Orchard Facilities Management.

Orchard Facilities Management has become the official sponsor of Huddersfield Town’s White Rose Club where the company’s fresh new branding is already in place.

The partnership comes hot on the heels of Orchard FM’s pledge to support the club’s charity Town Foundation by sponsoring its Early Kick-Off breakfast clubs and offering recycling lessons to pupils and operational support to schools.

The new brand brings together IT managed services business Orchard Networks and waste management division Orchard Environmental under one facilities management banner.  Orchard FM will offer IT, data, waste and recycling management alongside other business support services including pest control, building services, cleaning and maintenance.

Gareth Henderson, managing director of Orchard FM, said: “As long term supporters and corporate partners of Huddersfield Town and Town Foundation, our relationship with the club and our fellow sponsors has become extremely important to us.

“That’s why we have put that relationship at the heart of our rebrand and pledged to strengthen our ties with the club and its charity.

“This is a very exciting year for Orchard and our aim is to be an invisible army, working behind the scenes to help businesses in Calderdale and Kirklees to be as efficient, effective and environmentally responsible as possible,” added Gareth.

“Orchard has been working with local companies for more than a decade and by bringing our operational support services together under one banner we feel we can be even more effective in helping them cut down on time and costs.”

Tracy Nelson, Senior Commercial Manager at Huddersfield Town, said:

“Everyone at the Club is delighted to see Orchard FM continue its support of Huddersfield Town in this way.

“We’re confident that the brand awareness the White Rose Club will offer Orchard FM will aid its transition of bringing its outstanding array of services together under one name.”
