Adey Professional Heating Solutions

ADEY Professional Heating Solutions

ADEY Professional Heating Solutions is a dynamic young Gloucestershire company built on the humblest beginnings and incredibly proud to be the new main sponsors of Gloucester Rugby.

While our history may not stretch back to 1873 and we've only been in business for around a decade, we have more in common than you might imagine. Like Gloucester Rugby we are incredibly ambitious with a desire to achieve success not just in the UK, but also in Europe.

ADEY invented MagnaClean® technology and is the UK's No.1 manufacturer of magnetic filters delivering best practice protection for household central heating systems.

Like Gloucester Rugby, we're proud of our Gloucestershire roots and thrive as an independent company investing in ongoing product development. Gloucester Rugby boasts one of the most exciting playing squads in British club rugby today with incredible potential while ADEY's talented design teams are delivering some of the most exciting developments in the UK heating industry.

A winner of Gloucestershire's Business of the Year, ADEY is also the proud recipient of the Queen's Award for Innovation.

We're now looking forward to even greater success working with Gloucester Rugby in the seasons ahead, both the rugby season and the heating season.

Molson Coors

Official Pouring Rights Partner

Worthington's is not only the "most popular ale in the West Country and Wales" but is also synonymous with its association with rugby. Its support and passion for rugby goes from its proud partnership and shirt sponsorship with the Gloucester Rugby (which has run continuously since 1983) but also its long term involvement with "grass roots rugby" in Gloucester and surrounding areas.

As the parent company has progressed and evolved from Bass Brewers to Molson Coors Brewers (fourth largest and biggest family brewers in the world) one constant has been Worthington's support of the great game. Worthington's recognises there is nothing that goes together better than a "pint of good ale and the great game of rugby". No where is this appreciated more than with the knowledge and passionate Kingsholm supporters.
