Castleton Timber and Heywood Plastics has become the new sponsor of the Willbutts Lane Stand of the Crown Oil Arena.
The local company is also sponsoring the back of the players’ warm-up jackets.
Owners Iain Fay and Chris Walker are both big Dale fans and have supported the club in recent years with perimeter boards, but with the expansion of their business, they found that the natural progression was to increase their sponsorship and visibility at the Crown Oil Arena.
Adrian Hunt, Rochdale AFC’s Head of Commercial, said: “From the very first conversation we had with the guys, they were interested in increasing their support of the club and using the club’s platform to promote their brand to the fans of Rochdale AFC and the local community.
“Here at Rochdale AFC, we are extremely thankful to Iain, Chris and the teams at Castleton Timber and Heywood plastics for their continued support, and we look forward to welcoming them along to the games at the Crown Oil Arena during the season.”
Castleton Timber and Heywood Plastics Managing Director Iain Fay commented: “Being a newly formed local business, we understand how important it is to help and support other local businesses and sports club/teams.
“We have been watching the Dale from a young age, so it’s a great honour that we are now able to help and give something back to ‘our’ home town team, especially after the very tricky last couple of years on and off the field.”
The Dale sponsorship is the latest in a long line for the company, which has also provided sponsorships for 14-year-old karting and rally driver Sandro Ballesteros, the Royle Bowling Club, the Royle Bowling Club football club, Littleborough and Rochdale Cricket Clubs and Roach Dynamos Pink U9s.
Castleton Timber has also covered costs for a defibrillator in Castleton, supplied materials for the village’s memorial garden, and supplied and made planters at the railway station.
A charity golf day last year by the business raised £1,810 for Springhill Hospice.
