Huddersfield-based pharmaceutical manufacturer Thornton + Ross has extended its support of Huddersfield Town for a ninth consecutive season.
As part of the commercial agreement, Thornton + Ross has also sponsored the First Team squad’s travel wear.
The logos of its muscular ache and pain relief brand Radian B and its cough remedy Covonia both feature on the First Team’s travel kit, which is worn every match day.
Thornton + Ross, who initially became a partner of Huddersfield Town in March 2009, have also completed Covonia sampling over the winter months of the season, providing supporters with free throat lozenges.
Formed in 1922 in Huddersfield – the year Town lifted the FA Cup – Thornton + Ross employs over 550 people.
Thornton + Ross is the largest OTC liquid & cream manufacturer in the UK and continues to invest in new production lines to stay ahead of the game.
The pharmaceutical manufacturer was acquired by the STADA Group in 2013, and has subsequently merged with Genus Pharmaceuticals, and acquired Internis Pharmaceuticals, as well as acquiring Natures Aid, who manufacture and distribute vitamins, minerals and supplements.
Huddersfield Town’s Commercial Director Sean Jarvis and Senior Commercial Manager Tracy Nelson visited Thornton + Ross’ premises in Linthwaite to meet Director of Consumer Marketing John Chamberlin to mark the extended deal; they are pictured above.
Tracy Nelson commented:
“We’re all absolutely delighted that Thornton + Ross has renewed its commercial partnership with the Club for a ninth successive season.
“The support of major businesses in the local community is so important to us and Thornton + Ross has been a staunch supporter of the Club for a sustained period.
“We take great pride in the success of Huddersfield firms and Thornton + Ross’ growth has echoed our own since we have worked together.
“We are delighted that Thornton + Ross is sponsoring our travel wear and are proud to carry the Radian B and Covonia logos on our travel kit during our Premier League 2017/18 season.”
John Chamberlain, Director of International Marketing at Thornton + Ross said:
“‘It is a genuine pleasure to be continuing our support of Huddersfield Town for a ninth season.
“We began our sponsorship when the Club was in League 1 and have been delighted to share in its progression to the Premier League. We are looking forward to a strong finish to the season.
