London Scottish is delighted to confirm a new sponsorship agreement with Cairnhill Structures, specialist fabricators to the nuclear, rail, oil & gas, power generation, infrastructure and construction industries.
The Scottish company will appear on the front collarbone of the brand new 2016/17 season playing kits, and will also become part of the match day experience at the Athletic Ground.
Cairnhill Group Managing Director Neil Watson welcomed the tie-up with the Scots. “Cairnhill and our parent company Watson Towers Group are delighted to be associated with London Scottish, who fly the flag for Scottish rugby in London.
“We are confident this new relationship will benefit the Club and our company, helping strengthen our relationships with clients who share our belief in the positive role sport plays in providing inspiration and role models for young people and bringing communities together.
“As a company which operates UK wide we are particularly looking forward to sharing the London Scottish experience with our London based clients, as well as those from other parts of the country”.
“We are excited about being involved and we wish the team every success in the coming season.”
London Scottish Sponsorship Manager Mark Kemp is hugely excited for the new partnership.
“It’s great to have another Scottish firm seeing the value that London Scottish can add to their business platform.”
He continued: “ Having worked with Neil on the initial sponsorship and activation plan, it is going to be an exciting season on all fronts. It’s a big warm welcome to Cairnhill Structures from all at London Scottish.”

They have also recently produced huge 6-meter square steel doors for the Dungeness Nuclear power station, large Pipework for Heysham nuclear plant, and complex steelwork for Sellafield. Their recent bridge repair contract in Folkestone Kent shows their diversity in the type of projects they can deliver and also the broad range of locations they work within the UK.
