The new relationship will also see Saints’ Grounds and Maintenance teams rely on Shurtape’s products around Northampton’s stadium, training facilities and commercial offices.

“We’re thrilled to have secured a new partnership with Shurtape,” said Northampton Saints’ Head of Commercial Partnerships, Ulundi Makhanya.

“Shurtape’s products are found across the world, with the company based in the United Kingdom, United States, South America, Middle East, Nordic Region, Asia and Australasia.
