Posted by Hosokawa Micron | April 17th, 2015

Hosokawa Micron Ltd entertained customers and suppliers with lunch and an afternoon of rugby at Preston Grasshoppers RFC.

1st XV match between Hoppers and StourbridgeSponsoring the 1st XV match between Hoppers and Stourbridge, Hosokawa Micron personnel and  guests cheered the lifting of the clouds and rain just in time for the match, only to disappointingly watch the home team beaten, in what had been billed as an opportunity for Hoppers to pull away from the end of season ‘drop zone’. The Hoppers team had long spells of possession but were unable to capitalise on this in return for points despite a final and loudly cheered play just before the whistle.

Hosokawa Micron Ltd, MD and Hoppers Senior Colts Coach, Iain Crosley said, ‘As a committed supporter of local amateur sports and enterprise we are proud to sponsor the Hoppers v Stourbridge match, particularly as our company has a long connection with the Preston club through past employees. This year Hosokawa Micron Ltd celebrate 50 years in the UK and we look forward to next year when Hosokawa Micron Group celebrate their centenary.’

The club’s renowned atmosphere of camaraderie and enjoyment of every level of the sport of rugby ensured that Hosokawa guests had a warm welcome to Preston Grasshoppers and enjoyed a relaxed lunch and pleasurable afternoon of rugby and lively banter.

‘We thoroughly enjoyed this opportunity to meet customers, suppliers and friends in a more relaxed setting which gives us a better chance to thank them for their continued and valued support of Hosokawa Micron Ltd. We look forward to continuing to build and maintain the strong links, friendships and business relationships with our customers and suppliers; which are so vital to our company.’
