  Rath trombones has gained the award from Huddersfield Town Football Club

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.

Recognition

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."

This is the reason we run the Shooting Stars Award in association with Lucas Lee & Partners to discover companies based in our region that like the football team, put Huddersfield on the map Huddersfield Town FC

Amazing work

John Williams, Huddersfield Town FC Commercial Manager added: "The work Mick and the team do is amazing, and their craftsmanship is renowned for its excellence.

This is the reason we run the Shooting Stars Award in association with Lucas Lee & Partners to discover companies based in our region that like the football team, put Huddersfield on the map."
