We have sponsored this unique festival ever since it was launched 30 years ago and we are delighted to have seen it grow over the years to become an internationally renowned event.

Keeping Huddersfield Town’s Heritage Alive
We are proud to support our local team. Several of our employees (directors and staff) have been season ticket holders for many, many years. Over that time, we have endured defeats and relegation and enjoyed the triumphs of promotion and even the odd trophy – never more so than on 29th May 2017 when the Terriers won promotion to the Premier League.
In 1994, when Huddersfield Town moved from their Leeds Road ground their new stadium nearby (now known as the John Smiths Stadium), the team at Shaw Pallet decided that some heritage from the old ground needed retaining and so bought the fabric of a turnstile gate from the Bradley Mills End of the Leeds Road ground; which was subsequently re-constructed ‘brick by brick’ next to the company’s main Slaithwaite factory gate.
The old turnstile stood as the company’s official personnel entrance for ten years until it was damaged by a heavy storm; it was then donated to the club who organised a second rebuilding exercise and incorporated it into a secure area at the John Smiths Stadium where it has been featured on TV on numerous occasions and especially so upon the club’s return to the top flight of English football.
We were delighted to see the turnstile gate used as the backdrop for Huddersfield Town’s 2018/19 home kit launch.
