As we approach the end of our debut season in ice hockey’s top flight in the UK, the Smith Recycling Milton Keynes Lightning are delighted to announce another positive update regarding sponsorship.

Aritco UK is already a team sponsor, and now will extend its backing to include sponsorship of defenceman Evan Stoflet.  The news follows last week’s announcement that health drink manufacturer Coco Fuzion will remain an MK Lightning partner next season.

The staff of Aritco UK recently enjoyed a VIP matchnight as part of their backing of the team, when MKL hosted Manchester Storm at the Planet Ice MK Arena.

Aritco take the very best in lift design from their headquarters in Stockholm, providing a dedicated support division catering for the UK market, for both the public and private sector.

The group’s lifts can be found in more than 25,000 buildings and private homes across the world, making them the leading platform lifts manufacturer in Europe. Established in 1995, the company has gained an enviable reputation for their focus on technological advances, design and standards.

MKL’s Commercial Manager, Sarah Jane Smyth, commented:

“We’re delighted Aritco have added to their backing of the team.  We’ve been able to provide fantastic brand exposure this season with their logo prominently on the ice pad, and now we’ll also announce them every time Evan Stoflet starts a home game and also when he scores a goal or makes an assist.  There’s still plenty of points to play for this season so we hope Aritco enjoy the run in to the end of our campaign.”
