Crawley Town are delighted to welcome Pirtek Crawley to our growing family of sponsors as our official shirt sleeve sponsors for this season’s Emirates FA Cup competition.
The Pirtek logo will be seen for the first time on the Reds’ shirt on Saturday when we take on Southend United at Roots Hall in the first round.
Since it entered the UK marketplace in 1988, Pirtek has grown to become the number one provider of fluid transfer solutions and on-site repairs with its local base in Stockwell Business Park, Stephenson Way, Crawley.
Specialising in hydraulic hoses, pipe fittings and couplings, Pirtek Europe has service centres and on-site teams working in Belgium, Germany, Ireland, Netherlands and throughout the UK.
Commercial Manager Joe Comper said: “I’m delighted that Pirtek Crawley have agreed to be our sleeve sponsors for this season’s FA Cup shirt and I hope the Pirtek logo will be seen for many weeks to come because it will mean the Reds are having a good FA Cup run.
“It’s the first time we have had FA Cup sleeve sponsors since the run to the fifth round in 2012 so hopefully that’s a good omen for Saturday and this season's competition.”
Head Coach Gabriele Cioffi met with the team from Pirtek Crawley on Friday ahead of the trip to Southend, and was happy to pose for some photos showing off the new Pirtek branding.
