Durham & Katem Logistics Agree New Partnership

  • +1

Katem Logistics are helping to drive forward Durham Women – after agreeing a new partnership agreement with the club.

The Bowburn-based firm will see their logo featured proudly on the reverse of Durham’s home and away kits during the 2022/23 season after agreeing to become the club’s latest partner.

Katem are a family-managed logistics and warehousing company who have been based in County Durham since their inception – although their distinctive vehicles travel across Europe thanks to their wide range of work.

They have now been in operation for nearly 30 years and employ a large number of people from the local community, as they remain committed to providing a sustainable business in the heart of Durham. Katem also have women at the heart of their business, with the company name derived from Kate and Emily – daughters of the founders who work in the company today.

And it’s that focus that has seen Katem agree to partner with Durham Women ahead of the new Barclays Women’s Championship campaign.

In addition to their logo featuring on both shirts this season, Katem will also have a major presence at Maiden Castle with some striking ground boards – designed by Catherine Boland – and will also see their logo feature on our social media graphics.

To launch the partnership, Durham Women’s first-team squad visited Katem’s headquarters in Bowburn to meet with staff and see first hand the work the local firm carry out on a daily basis.

Commenting on the partnership, Katem’s chairwoman Clare Davison said: ‘’Females are at the heart of our business and at the heart of our community.

“It is an honour to be able to be a part of Durham WFC’s incredible journey.  It feels like there is now a fantastic opportunity to support a game and a movement for equality and empowering women within sport and the community.

“We can’t wait to be supporting the team and we wish them all the best for the coming season.’’

Durham Women’s Lee Sanders added: “It’s testament to not only how well the club is doing locally, but how women’s football is doing generally in the country, that big local businesses like Katem Logistics have a passion to get involved with ourselves and the sport.

“We can’t thank Clare, John, Katie, Emily, Matty and James enough for the support and it’s vitally important that we grow and maintain our partnerships within the local community.”
