Norths Devils have announced that energy innovators PATHION Inc will become the club’s principal partner for the next two years.
The partnership will include PATHION appearing on the front of the Devils’ jersey, training apparel and other significant club properties.
“This is great news for Devils fans because PATHION is a leader in its field and this partnership is one that will benefit both parties,” Norths CEO Terry Reader said.
“PATHION has enjoyed a strong relationship with the Brisbane Bullets as their principal partner in this National Basketball League season and we welcome their increased involvement in the city’s sporting scene.”
PATHION’s mission is to power the world more efficiently and sustainably to develop, build and sell safe, intelligent energy storage solutions for commercial, industrial, utilities, marine and government customers.
With offices in the US, Europe, and Australia, PATHION delivers renewable and intelligent energy storage solutions that address today’s critical problems of electric quality, reliability and increasing costs.
“PATHION is delighted with the signing of the Devils knowing that the club is committed to developing the game throughout the community and to performing at their best. We’re excited to be part of the broader Devils community,” PATHION CEO Mike Liddle said. “We’re aware of the history of this club with rugby league greats such as Clive Churchill, John Sattler, Cameron Smith and Billy Slater all playing for the Devils. We look forward to seeing the next generation of players emerge.”
Mr Liddle said PATHION’s solutions result in maximized energy savings, ongoing energy resilience and security, delivering broader economic value and grid stability across both customers and communities.
Terry Reader said the Devils Leagues Club was already working with PATHION on its energy efficiency, saving funds that can be channeled back into the playing ranks.
“We have some exciting announcements in the coming weeks about our new partners for 2018 and PATHION is chief among those,” Reader said.
“This announcement continues an exciting off-season for the Devils. We can’t wait for the start of the new Intrust Super Cup season.”
The Devils will play their final pre-season match on Saturday when they travel to the Gold Coast to play the Burleigh Bears and Tweed Heads Seagulls. The Devils will play one half against each team in a unique three-way trial.
The Intrust Super Cup begins at Bishop Park on Sunday March 11 when the Devils host Tweed Heads.
