CD Group has been a sponsor of Ulster Rugby since 2013, with key support for the Ulster A team, where the team jersey features the CD Group logo on the sleeves and the Apec Braking logo on the back.
As the largest distributor of vehicle replacement parts in Ireland, CD Group uses their trademark white vans with red stripes to make deliveries to over 350 customers every day, throughout the 32 counties, from locations in Mallusk, Dublin and Cork.
Managing Director, Terry Knox, re-enforced the company's sponsorship in saying "We are a family business who identify with the professionalism of Ulster Rugby. We are proud to trade throughout Ireland and we are proud of where we hail from. This association allows us to show our support for rugby and rubber stamp our commitment to the province. To be able to specifically support the A team works well for us as it provides opportunities for up and coming players whilst also offering game time for more of the senior squad. This mirrors the support function that we feel that CD Group offers our customers to best service mechanics in Ireland."
