The partnership will be focused on streamlining, optimising and reducing the costs of the MK Dons office and IT operations, so the club can redirect important spend and funds on to other areas to help with its growth.
Sam Bendall, Managing Director of STORM says, “We feel excited to be partnering and supporting MK Dons. Both STORM and MK Dons have a lot of similarities; we're both professional organisations, striving for excellence in our respective fields, we're both building a critical mass of supporters & customers and are, of course, local to each other. Our dream would be to look back in 30 years time and feel proud of the impact the MK Dons & STORM partnership has had to each other and to Milton Keynes as a whole.”
STORM have agreed to increase their support of MK Dons to club partner level for the next two years. The print support includes provision of a high speed Riso machine that prints the team sheets on match days, as well as additional large multifunctional and desktop devices throughout the organisation.
Bendall continues, “STORM are big believers in supporting the local community wherever possible, whether that be through partnering with the MK Dons through to raising money for local schools near to where we live. We realise the fantastic potential the MK Dons have, the stadium, the facilities coupled with a team with a clear passion and focus on achieving the next phase of their journey makes us proud to be a part of it ourselves.”
STORM was formed in 2016 and have gone on to become one of the fastest growing office photocopier and printing solutions companies in the UK. The company were established to help businesses large and small to deliver significant cost savings within their office operations.
