Bath-Based BMT will be giving Bath Rugby some very local support by signing a partnership deal with the Club for the coming season.
BMT Group Ltd (BMT), the leading international maritime design, engineering, risk management and programme management consultancy, has announced that it will be supporting Bath Rugby as an Official Business Partner for 2014/15.
BMT has a major presence in the city with its four Bath-based companies. BMT Defence Services, BMT Hi-Q Sigma, BMT Isis and BMT Reliability Consultants employ over 500 people supporting major local, national and international clients including the Ministry of Defence. BMT’s heritage runs deep in the city and it is proud to be maintaining a tradition of maritime and engineering excellence previously established by Lord Nelson who lived in Bath between 1758 and 1805 and the Admiralty which moved to the city in 1939.
The partnership with Bath Rugby is the latest in BMT’s recent commitments to the area which include support of Dorothy House and other local, national and international charities, the community covenant supporting the integration of Armed Forces personnel into local life and the agreement with Bath & North East Somerset Council to redevelop the Bath Quays South site. BMT has also developed strong links with local universities and schools through its support of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) programmes; partnership with the University of Bath’s School of Management; prize givings and work experience.
BMT’s Regional Director for UK and Europe, Gary Smith commented: “We’re delighted to be supporting Bath Rugby and wish the team every success in Europe and on the domestic front for the coming season.
"We see the partnership with Bath Rugby as a logical progression in BMT’s investment and engagement with the City of Bath. We look forward to a bright future, in partnership with Bath Rugby as key members of the community.”
