CG Engineering & Construction - Business of the week

CG Engineering & Construction - Business of the week

28th September 2017

During each week of the closed-season, Widnes Vikings will showcase a business that has pledged their support to the Club in the 2018 season. Meet our first Business of the Week, CG Engineering & Construction...

The Vikings Media team caught up with Chris Gilhooley, Managing Director at the Company, to get the lowdown on their services and why they choose to back the Vikings.

Chris, tell us a bit about your business….

“We are a local engineering company that was established in 2002. We carry out structural and mechanical work throughout the North West of England. 

We have a special focus on industry-based work and have a number of big industry clients, such as Network Rail.”

 What makes your company special?

 “We are a highly skilled and committed company.  We pride ourselves on our loyalty, both to our staff and our customers.” 

 As a local business, was it important for you to support your community’s Club?

 “100%. For us, it’s about recognition, getting our name out there and being seen by a big audience. We back the Vikings because we are a North-West company, getting behind a North-West team.”

 You are the sponsor of our sold out Annual Gold Day, and always support this event. Is this another example of how you have partnered with the Vikings to raise your profile, network and support the Club?

“It certainly is. We’ve always had a great time and love getting behind the event. We actually won it a couple of years ago, so fingers crossed we can have another good result too!”

What inspires your loyalty to our Widnes Vikings?

“Even though the team has had challenges on the field this year, you have to take the high and lows in sport, so we still wanted to back the team. We see the Club doing great work in schools and in the community, and we want to continue being associated with the Vikings.

Dave Rolt, and everyone at the Vikings, does a fantastic job and goes the extra mile. The Club have looked after us time and time again, and we couldn’t ask for a better team to support.”
