Northland-based company Coresteel has been announced as the new back-of-shirt sponsor for the Northland Taniwha, as the team prepare to build up for the ITM Cup.
Coresteel is owned and operated by the Donovan family from Whangarei, and has 22 building franchises nationwide, including the local franchise run by Hill Construction.
Company director Kyle Donovan says sponsorship of the Northland Taniwha was an opportunity to celebrate the company’s success over recent years and also put back into the community where he and his family grew up.
“We’ve lived all our lives here so it’s nice to be able to give something back. Our family have always been strong supporters of the game and our local team, so it’s great to be in a position to give back.”
Kyle runs the business alongside his brother Brett and father Graham, who are both also company directors.
Kyle believes the company’s rapid growth over recent years has come from its uniquely patented steel building system which has made construction of large buildings, particularly industrial and commercial builds, more cost-effective.
