DCS Stadium Named at Banbury Rugby Club

06 Sep 2017

The UK’s largest distributor of health, beauty and household brands has become the Club’s inaugural Stadium Sponsor at Bodicote Park.

To support its aim of becoming a £300m business within 5 years, DCS Group has just opened a new Head Office on a 25-acre site at Noral Way in Banbury. The company has a policy that ensures it plays its part in the local community and Banbury Rugby Club is delighted to be announcing a 3-year partnership with such a successful business.

The DCS Group was founded in 1994 by the current Chairman and Chief Executive, Denys Shortt OBE. The business opened its first commercial premises in Stratford upon Avon in 2001 before adding a manufacturing plant in 2005.

The company boasts some of the world’s biggest companies as suppliers including Proctor & Gamble, Unilever, Colgate, PZ Cussons, Reckitt Benkiser and SC Johnson and delivers to over 500 retail chains and wholesalers in the UK.

Banbury Rugby Club Commercial Manager Simon Grieve said; “We’re thrilled to be helping grow awareness of DCS in the Banburyshire area, a key component in their growth plans. It is clear that the Club will benefit in many ways from working with Denys and his DCS team as we continue to raise our game, both on and off the field.”

Denys Shortt commented; "We are absolutely delighted to support Banbury Rugby Club. We have been very impressed with their professional approach and their plans for the future. The club is an impressive venue for meetings and events and we have already booked our summer family day there next year!"   He continues; "DCS Group is growing and we now have over 300 staff. We hope many will get involved in playing Rugby or Touch Rugby."
