As exclusively revealed at the club’s AGM last night, Deveronvale Football Club is proud to announce that Motive Offshore Group Ltd. is the club’s new main sponsor. An initial three-year deal has been agreed from the start of the 2019/20 season that will see the marine equipment fabrication and equipment rental specialists involved in a major partnership with the club.
Established in 2010 and headquartered in Boyndie, near Banff, Motive Offshore Group provides high quality marine equipment and associated services to the onshore and offshore oil and gas and marine industries.
Commenting on the deal, Deveronvale’s Commercial Manager Calum Lawrie said. “We are absolutely delighted to have secured this partnership with Motive Offshore Group, an organisation that already enjoys a close relationship with the club. In addition to their sponsorship of the club and the club carrying the Motive brand on the new home and away kits, we were keen to build a mutually beneficial partnership and the staff and players at Princess Royal Park will be contributing towards Motive’s local community initiatives alongside their employees as part of the wider Team Motive campaign. We are also happy to announce the re-naming of our lounge at the stadium to The Motive Offshore Group Hospitality Lounge.”
“I would also like to take this opportunity to thank Des Cheyne and The ‘Famous’ Spotty Bag Shop for their support over the past three years, which has been very much appreciated by everyone involved at the club.”
The group, which comprises of Motive Engineering, Motive Rentals, Motive Spooling & Inspection, Motive Fabrication and Motive Industrial Services, specialises in the manufacture and rental of high capacity winches, umbilical deployment equipment and specialised subsea equipment. Its services include wire rope spooling, inspection and testing, bespoke design and fabrication.
Motive Offshore Group also operates Motive Rentals AS from Stavanger, Norway; Motive FZC from Dubai, UAE; and Motive Spooling & Inspection LLC from Houston, North America.
Dave Acton, Motive Offshore Group Managing Director, added: “Motive has always been highly active in supporting many local and community initiatives and groups, as well as charities across the North east so we are delighted to be the main sponsor for Deveronvale FC over the coming three years. Many of our staff are great supporters and we are looking forward to cheering on our local team as they climb the league whilst proudly sporting the Motive name. Since we launched in 2010 we have helped many community teams and organisations and have raised more than £26,000 for charities, so it is very much part of the Motive ethos to give something back to the community that we live and work in.”
