However, the relationship between the two parties goes back much further than that, as Allcooper CEO, Roman Cooper explains:
"The whole Cooper family have been coming to watch Gloucester play since I was a boy and it feels like a home-from-home for us. So, when the opportunity to assist the club with its site safety arose; we jumped at the chance.
"Having proved our capabilities with a steady flow of smaller projects, when the extension and redevelopment of the stadium got the go-ahead in 2006, we were the first in line to consult on the fire protection and electronic security aspects and I'm proud to say that we now exclusively look after those needs for the whole of Kingsholm.
"Alongside this, we have developed our relationship with the Gloucester Rugby staff through membership of the 1873 Club, pitch-side advertising and sponsorship of the stewards' jackets. We always receive a warm welcome from the moment we set foot in the door and everyone involved goes out of their way to make it a first-class experience for us and our guests."
Recognising that there was a desire on the parts of both Allcooper and Gloucester Rugby to set the association in stone and reap the mutual benefits, early in the season negotiations took place and a deal was reached for Allcooper to become an Official Partner of the club.
Like Gloucester Rugby, Allcooper's roots are in the historic city, with founders Gary Cooper and son, Gerard setting up the business from their Gloucester home in 1987.
Today, Allcooper boasts a 60-strong team who provide tailored solutions to homes and businesses, through the installation, monitoring and maintenance of a range of products.
These include: intruder alarms; access control systems; CCTV; electronic barriers; fire protection equipment and a number of other state-of-the-art security and safety devices.
The insistence on high standards throughout the business and commitment to doing right by their customers has helped the company to get where it is today and most importantly, develop long-term relationships such as the one described here.
To celebrate becoming an Official Partner, Allcooper are offering all Cherry and Whites fans 10% off home intruder alarm systems, if ordered before Christmas*. Call 01452 543321 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to enquire and don't forget to quote 'rugby'.
