Rath Trombones has become the latest local company to win Huddersfield Town Football Club's 'Shooting Star' award.
The Premiership football team already enjoys a musical link to the brass banding world with Terrier Brass, the ensemble that helps provide a great upbeat atmosphere at the John Smith's Stadium.
Now they have also recognised the excellence of another local musical phenomenon with Rath Trombones who export over 60% of their products around the world.
Mick Rath, Managing Director of Rath Trombones told 4BR: "It's wonderful to be recognised by Huddersfield Town for our efforts."
Meanwhile, Chris Lee, Managing Director at Lucas Lee & Partners who are the partners with the football club in the scheme added: "Rath Trombones is yet another Huddersfield hidden gem. It's fantastic to see their work going worldwide.
Being the only UK based trombone maker and to be based in Huddersfield is just another great reason we should be promoting the town and what it has on offer."
