Partnership with Coventry Rugby
Robinson Manufacturing Ltd (RML) is proud to partner with Coventry Rugby to support a wide range of sports and community activities run by the club in the West Midlands – where RML has a major joist manufacturing factory.
RML CEO Simon Kidney, pictured right with Director of Rugby at Coventry, Rowland Winter, has a strong association with the club, coaching the under 18’s with Phil Boulton.
“Our relationship with Coventry Rugby was born out of a rugby relationship – I was director of Rugby at a rival club to Rowland Winter’s Cambridge RFC when we first struck up a working relationship,” explained Simon “RML’s Inspire, Innovate and Deliver charter has seen us grow from a small regional player to a national manufacturing business competing at the top level of our sector; Coventry’s achievements under Rowland’s lead echoes our business success, and both organisations will benefit from this partnership.”
The partnership, which runs from 2019 – 2021 includes kit sponsorship for the club’s first team and:
