Decmil Australia extends sponsorship
Leading building and civil construction company Decmil Australia has renewed its support as coaches’ sponsor of the Fremantle Dockers for a two year term through to the end of the 2013 season.
The partnership with Fremantle will provide significant brand exposure for Decmil Australia in line with the company’s long-term growth strategy.
Fremantle Dockers CEO Steve Rosich today described the contract extension as a positive endorsement of the club’s direction and strategic plan.
“Decmil Australia has been a partner of the club since 2006 and we are excited to be extending Decmil’s support as coaches’ sponsor, as well as assuming sponsorship rights of the Live the Dream program,” Rosich said.
“On behalf of our club, I would like to thank Ray Sputore and his management team for their continued support of the club.”
In announcing the two year extension, Decmil Australia managing director Ray Sputore said that the agreement offered a great opportunity to be involved with an organisation with similar values, and the sponsorship of the Live the Dream program meant Decmil could reach out in to the areas in which it operated and give something back to those communities.
“Decmil’s values include leadership, people and teamwork, and these values can be found in the Fremantle Football Club through their coaching staff, the leadership group and their hunger to win. I wish them all the best for season 2012 and congratulate them on such a great start in round one,” Sputore said.
“Also, we feel it’s important to give back to the local community in which we work and live, and Decmil is proud to be the sponsor of the Live the Dream program.
We will be working hard with the Fremantle Dockers to promote the program in regional areas, including Karratha, Newman, Port Hedland and the Kimberley.”
Decmil Australia, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Perth-based Decmil Group Limited (DGL), works with many of the resource industry’s blue chip companies and employs more than 900 employees and contractors Australia wide.
Decmil Australia also partners the Clontarf Foundation, which uses the passion Indigenous youths have for football to increase engagement at school, develop life skills and successfully transition into the workplace and many other community initiatives situated in their project areas.
