British Rowing announces three-year supplier agreement with Andrews Sykes


British Rowing has announced a new long-term association with Andrews Sykes as an Official Supplier until the end of 2020.

The deal will see Andrews Air Conditioning provide temporary cooling equipment to be housed inside the various training camps where the GB Rowing Team prepare for international competitions.

This summer, a number of Andrews Air Conditioning Polar Wind units have been deployed within the team’s training base in Varese, Italy, where the women’s squad selected to represent Great Britain at the World Rowing Championships are currently training. Varese is situated in north-western Lombardy, not far from the Swiss border. Temperatures during this month’s camp have reached 35 degrees so the addition of Andrews Air Conditioning units has been important for quality indoor rowing training in preparation for the World Rowing Championships in Sarasota-Bradenton, Florida this September.

Andrews’ supplier agreement with British Rowing has been extended for a three-year period and will culminate in them supporting the GB Rowing Team’s preparation for the 2020 Olympics and Paralympics in Tokyo.

As the UK’s most prominent provider of portable climate control solutions, Andrews Air Conditioning are pleased to be supplying one of the country’s most successful sports teams with equipment that will aid their training, saying: “We wish the squad the very best of luck both with preparing for and competing in the upcoming World Rowing Championships and look forward to following their progress on the BBC once things get started.”
