Autex, based in Auckland and Elland and with a proud Yorkshire heritage, becomes Giants Kit Partner for 2019.

Foster Care

Autex Acoustics, the acoustics manufacturer with bases in both Elland and in Auckland, New Zealand have joined Huddersfield Giants as a kit partner for 2019. 

Autex Acoustics are a global leader in the development and manufacture of acoustic products, designed to enhance the way we live, work and play. With a rich history of over 50 years, Autex has built a reputation within the architectural community for being forward-thinking and innovative while ensuring exceptional customer service.

Autex has been supporting the rugby league community since 1979 when they sponsored the New Zealand Kiwis – which at the time was the biggest sponsorship deal in New Zealand sport. From there, Autex has continued its generosity and support with local New Zealand club Point Chevalier Pirates, The NRL’s New Zealand Warriors, and the inception of Autex House; a stable home environment for up and coming players.

In 2018, Autex took their love and support of Rugby League one step further with a joint-purchase of the New Zealand Warriors, keeping the club owned by people with a passion and love of the sport.

In 2019, Autex spread its wings and partnered with the Huddersfield Giants, a club based in the hometown of their UK Managing Director, Simon Senior.

UK Managing Director, Simon Senior said “Autex Acoustics are dedicated to supporting local business and the local community.

"The Giants have always followed this same philosophy so becoming a partner makes a perfect fit.

"Born and bred in Huddersfield and a lifelong supporter from the early days, I know how passionate the Giants are and we are proud to be part of this."  

Huddersfield Giants Commercial Manager, Brian Blacker said "It's fitting that Autex, a company with such good links with the sport, have partnered up with the Giants, the Birthplace of Rugby League, for the 2019 season, building upon the great work they do in New Zealand with Rugby League.

"We're delighted to be partnered with such a reputable firm and look forward to a long and successful partnership between our two companies"
