Scottish Rugby renews commercial pact with Saltire Energy

The extension ensures that Saltire Energy will continue to be the official partner of the Scotland Men's Team for a further two years.

The governing body of rugby union in Scotland, Scottish Rugby has announced a partnership renewal with Saltire Energy, a leading supplier of drilling tools to the global offshore oil and gas industry.

Both entities originally collaborated in 2021, and the extension ensures that the brand will continue to be the official partner of the Scotland Men’s Team for a further two years.

Significantly, the multinational family business ensures its backing of “Saltire Energy Rugby Schools Week” and “Saltire Energy Caledonia Cup,” highlighting the beneficial effects of sport on young people’s lives and reaffirming its dedication to the areas in which it operates.

This year’s Saltire Energy Rugby Schools Week attracted an unprecedented amount of young people, with 270 schools signing up. The Saltire Energy Caledonian Cup, held last month, featured over 600 young players from the region competing in Scotland’s largest regional rugby Finals Day.

Mike Loggie, CEO of Saltire Energy, said, “We are delighted to continue our official partnership with Scottish Rugby. As a passionate follower of rugby, and during such an exciting time for the National teams, it is fantastic to continue our support. We feel strongly about the role sport has in the lives of young people; its ability to motivate and empower which we witness during the school’s competitions which saw over 20,000 pupils engage in the game in one week. Our core values at Saltire Energy very much align with the game; respect, leadership, achievement, enjoyment and engagement and because of that we are excited to continue the journey and be part of the future successes too.”

Scottish Rugby Interim Commercial Director, Chris Healy, said, “The commitment from Saltire Energy to support Scottish Rugby for five years is testament to the many shared values that we hold. Both organisations are aligned with the passion to support the game at grassroots level through our community clubs and schools. Saltire Energy has been a much valued official partner of Scottish Rugby and I am delighted that we can continue working with them and can’t wait to grow the already very positive and successful partnership.”

Scottish Rugby Director of Rugby Development, Gavin Scott, said, “The partnership that Scottish Rugby has built with Saltire Energy over the past three years has allowed for significant leaps in our development of activities both within their local region of Caledonia North as well as across the whole of Scotland within our schools’ initiatives. This is aligned with our own strategic work to break down barriers and create wider access to rugby for boys and girls across Scotland. Saltire Energy has been great to work with and I am really excited with where we can take this partnership over the next two years.”

With its headquarters located in Aberdeen, Saltire Energy is the top provider of equipment rentals for oilfields to the global energy industry. Since its founding in 1986, the company has expanded to support multinational operators’ activities throughout the world owing to constant investments in its cutting-edge facilities and innovative product offerings.
