Huddersfield-based pharmaceutical manufacturer Thornton and Ross has extended its support of Huddersfield Town for a 10th consecutive season.
Following on from the 2017/18 season, Thornton and Ross has sponsored the First Team squad’s travel wear for the 2018/19 season. The logos of its muscular aches and pains relief brand Radian B and its cough, cold and sore throat brand Covonia both feature on the First Team’s travel kit, which is worn at all home and away games.
Alongside this, the Huddersfield-based company has a box at the John Smith’s Stadium for members of staff to enjoy watching The Terriers, employees are Club Town members and they also take a pop-up retail shop on their premises to give members of staff the opportunity purchase Huddersfield Town products several times a year.
Thornton and Ross, who initially became a partner of Huddersfield Town in March 2009, also regularly offers Town supporters the opportunity to sample Covonia outside the stadium on match days over the winter months of the season – providing free packs of Covonia Double Impact Lozenges that have both a warming flavour and a powerful menthol vapour. Great for a cold Saturday afternoon!
Formed in Huddersfield in 1922 – the year Town lifted the FA Cup – Thornton and Ross employs over 500 people and exports to over 90 countries worldwide. The company’s product portfolio includes a large number of well-known medicine brands such as Covonia®, Hedrin®, Care®, Cetraben®, Radian B®, Flexitol® and Setlers®, as well as the UK’s leading household disinfectant Zoflora®.
Ed Round, Director of Consumer Marketing at Thornton and Ross, commented:
“We are once again delighted to renew our commercial partnership with Huddersfield Town for the 2018/19 season, which will be our 10th successive year. During this period, the Club have enjoyed considerable success on the pitch with two promotions and alongside this, Thornton and Ross have enjoyed a phenomenal period of sustained sales growth.”
“Thornton and Ross are proud to be part of the Huddersfield Hundred and look forward to continuing our long running partnership with The Terriers. UTT!”
