The local hydraulics firm has one of their four UK depots based in the town, they are a premier distributor and service provider of Hydraulic, Pneumatic and Industrial Hose, fittings, and all associated products throughout the UK, including 24-hour emergency repair services and more.

Mend-A-Hose is a well-known name to Castleford Tigers supporters and the visiting opposition fans, since 2014 the business has held the stadium naming rights and as such our ground has been called The Mend-A-Hose Jungle.

2020 has been a difficult financial year but thanks to the financial support shown by club partners, such as Mend-A-Hose, the club is hopeful of coming out of the Covid-19 pandemic in a strong position.

John Duff – Managing Director of Mend-A-Hose Hydraulics commented on the news saying:

“In these adverse times, it is important to us to be able to honour our responsibilities, not only to our staff and our customers/suppliers but also our sponsorship pledges.

“Mend-A-Hose are proud to be able to satisfy this year’s commitment and to also continue our sponsorship of the club into 2021, our 17th season. Castleford itself needs the Tigers and the sport needs the passion that Castleford brings with it, we need to do our best to keep supporting our club.”

Head of Commercial Partnerships at Castleford Tigers Craig Jeffels thanked Mend-A-Hose for the continued long-term support:

“This year has been tough for us all, but especially for businesses that have been significantly impacted by the pandemic. Mend-A-Hose is one of those businesses, and for them to offer their full support in this way through these uncertain times is truly humbling, and a sign of how well the company operates as a business.

“I know what this club means to John, and he knows what Mend-A-Hose means to the Tigers. This is just another act of unselfishness and loyalty as they enter their 17th year as club partners in 2021.

“Everyone at Castleford Tigers would like to thank you wholeheartedly for the level of commitment and support you have shown over the past 17 years, as we look forward to another season at The Mend-A-Hose Jungle.”
