Rix Petroleum is pleased to announce the joint-principal sponsorship of The Kenilworth Show, which returns on Saturday June 7th, alongside hosts Stoneleigh Park.
Rix has now been a main sponsor of the show for five years running and Paul Doherty, director of our Rix Petroleum Midlands branch, said the firm is looking forward to one of the region’s biggest one-day agricultural events.
“We’ve enjoyed having a large presence at the show over the last five years and being a main sponsor has worked extremely well for us. The Kenilworth Show gives us the opportunity to meet up with our customers as well as make new contacts and is an important date in the calendar for the team.”
“The agricultural sector is extremely important to our business and we try to get along to six or seven shows every year, we also sponsor and support Warwickshire Young Farmers, their clubs, ploughing matches and farming events.
“We have increased our farming customer base by 40 percent since this time last year, taken on new staff and invested in a new tanker which takes our fleet to eight, so it’s been a successful period for us which is very positive.”
Gordon Gatward, chairman of event organisers Kenilworth and District Agricultural Society, added: “Making a major event like the Kenilworth Show a success requires the support of lots of parties and we’re delighted Rix Petroleum are with us again.
"We value the fantastic backing we get from our sponsors as without them we wouldn’t be in a position to continuously add new features and attractions to make the event better than ever.”
