Kennards Hire and the West Coast Eagles are flying high as they join forces in a new deal that sees them become Official Partners in 2018.
Being one of the most reputable and reliable equipment hire companies in Australia and New Zealand, the family-owned business never lacks quality in their products. Committed to building local communities, Kennards Hire were key in providing equipment to help construct the 60,000 seat Optus Stadium, home of the Eagles, and their new training ground at Lathlain Park Stadium.
Tony Symons, General Manager for Kennards Hire Western Australia and Northern Territory, said that having supported grassroots sports and local club football, he is delighted that Kennards Hire has been able to back the West Coast Eagles in more ways than one.
“We’re excited that Kennards Hire is joining the West Coast Eagles as an official partner in 2018. We were at their new home ground, supplying equipment, as it was built from the ground up and are doing the same at Lathlain Park. So to be right there alongside the team this year as they run onto the field is a great opportunity.”
“Over here in Western Australia, many of our staff, customers and suppliers are West Coast Eagles supporters. We’re looking forward to building our partnership with the Eagles and providing many opportunities for the community to come together in their love of AFL.”
Trevor Nisbett, CEO of the West Coast Eagles, believes that this collaboration is a natural fit for the two iconic Australian brands.
“Kennards Hire have been important to us on the ground for the development of the club’s new training base and administration facility at Lathlain Park. They have also played a significant role in the building of our Optus Stadium, so we are delighted to have them commit as an official partner too.”
The Lathlain Park base should be one of the best sporting facilities in the southern hemisphere, and with Kennards Hire’s help, it is on track for us to relocate in about 12 months’ time.”
The Kennards Hire and West Coast Eagles partnership kicks off at the start of the 2018 Toyota AFL Premiership Season in March.
