Fort Vale are delighted to be involved with Colne Grand Prix again, this time as headline sponsor. It fits with their ethos and their commitment to local people, as well as giving them the opportunity to develop relationships with the cycling community. They are stainless steel precision valve manufacturers, and both in work and out they are passionate about developing talent, providing opportunities for young people and supporting the whole local community – they are very proud to sponsor the 2019 Colne Grand Prix. They have dedicated apprentice training facilities where we continually support just under 30 apprentices through their practical and academic studies; their hope is that our apprentices will go on to be the future key people at Fort Vale, within either engineering and manufacturing or other areas of our company. They recently officially opened our Wilson Fort Sports Club at Fort Vale Engineering’s Simonstone factory, which is part of their commitment to a healthy workforce. Additionally, the support for the Colne Grand Prix is part of their commitment to a healthy community.
