Hitachi Construction Machinery (HCMUK) have been fantastic partners to the club over the past 6 years, with several commercial initiatives they have supported, truly highlighting their similar values an ethos as a “community asset” within the town.
The extended partnership sees Hitachi Construction Machinery become the clubs newly built stand (behind the Sportsy end goal) sponsor, with the stand now named “The Hitachi Construction Machinery Stand”.
Hebburn Town CEO Stephen Rutherford said “Since the re-birth of the club back in 2017, Hitachi Construction Machinery as a local business and employer have been right behind us as a club. The partnership goes beyond a commercial/financial agreement as both organisations share similar ethos and values that demonstrate passion about community involvement, community spirit and engagement. I’m pleased to extend this relationship; we are looking forward to continuing to work closely with HCM UK as we explore further opportunities to create community engagement such as local apprenticeship channels etc. I’d like to thank David and all the staff at HCM UK for their continued support and look forward to welcoming them to Hebburn Sports Ground over the coming seasons”.
Hitachi Construction Machinery CEO David Roberts shared, “In 2024, Hebburn will have been home to Hitachi Construction Machinery UK Ltd for 20 years and over that period the business has experienced significant growth and development, not least thanks to the hard working and loyal team who work here at our UK headquarters and the numerous local supply partners and community organisations that we have built really strong relationships with. So, it is only right that we deliver back to the local community that has been so good to us, and our partnership with Hebburn Town FC; in it’s 6th year; is a perfect example. It is clear that HCMUK and Hebburn Town share the same values, and it has been great to play a small part in the growth and success that the club has enjoyed in recent years, and I look forward to seeing how our journey progresses over the coming years”.
We hope spectators enjoy the newly built “Hitachi Construction Machinery Stand” at our home games as we continue to provide a great match day experience.
