SPONSORS: Sussex announce new major partnership with Palmer and Harvey31-Mar-2014
Sussex County Cricket Club are delighted to announce a new major sponsorship with Palmer and Harvey, which will see their logo displayed on both the LV=County Championship kit and the Royal London One-Day Cup shirts.
Palmer and Harvey is the UK’s number one delivered wholesaler, serving multiple, convenience, forecourt and retail outlets. Since their inception over 80 years ago, the company has grown through a mixture of organic growth and targeted acquisitions.
Their industry-leading delivery network of 12 regional depots serves over 90,000 UK retail outlets, and places Palmer and Harvey within two hours of each and every customer. A diverse fleet of over 1,000 vehicles makes more than 60,000 deliveries every week, in every UK postcode. However they are based locally in Hove and only a stone’s throw away from The BrightonandHoveJobs.com County Ground.
Their representatives met the playing squad this morning at Sussex’s Press and Media Day and Martyn Ward, Managing Director of Palmer and Harvey said, “I’m delighted that we have been able to agree this partnership, which brings together our two organisations. The partnership is a perfect fit - like Sussex CCC our headquarters are in Hove and also, like the cricket club, we have a long history of leading the field.
“Both organisations have leading roles in the community, Palmer and Harvey as a major employer and Sussex CCC as sporting role models.
“The partnership will also help to positively raise the profile of Palmer and Harvey among our current and potential customers.”
Zac Toumazi, Sussex’s Chief Executive said, “We’re absolutely thrilled to welcome Palmer and Harvey to the Sussex family. They are an incredibly successful company and it is great to be involved with a national organisation who are based so locally to the ground.
“It makes sense to be partnering with one of the premier employers in the county and with us being the oldest professional cricket club, turning 175 years old this year, it really is a natural partnership.
“We will make sure that Sussex Cricket and Palmer and Harvey always deliver - be it a fast ball or quality service!”
