Sir Robert McAlpine to join the ParalympicsGB family
ParalympicsGB are proud to announce Sir Robert McAlpine as an official partner ahead of the Tokyo 2020 Paralympic Games.
With less than 200 days to go until the start of the Paralympic Games, the partnership aligns with Sir Robert McAlpine’s commitment to creating an inclusive workplace environment and culture, that values the diversity of individual talents.
Building Sir Robert McAlpine’s 150-year legacy of technical excellence and innovation, this partnership celebrates the company’s values and its vision to become the best place to work.
Their core values of inclusivity and diversity are ones which align very closely to our own and which are fundamental to the Paralympic movement.
The family-owned business has close links to sport having been involved in the construction of a number of the nation’s most iconic sporting venues.
As the main contractor behind the London 2012 Stadium they are closely connected to some of ParalympicsGB’s most memorable moments from the Games, such as Jonnie Peacock’s historic gold medal win in front of a capacity crowd.
Mike Sharrock, CEO of the British Paralympic Association said: “As Tokyo 2020 draws ever closer we are delighted to partner with Sir Robert McAlpine to support their ambition of creating positive change across the engineering sector.
“Their core values of inclusivity and diversity are ones which align very closely to our own and which are fundamental to the Paralympic movement.
“By working together to challenge and change perceptions, we look forward to seeing what this partnership will bring to the BPA, Sir Robert McAlpine and its employees.
“With their support, we can help to ensure disabled people are represented throughout society and, like our Paralympic heroes, become Impossible to Ignore.”
Paul Hamer, CEO of Sir Robert McAlpine, said: “We are proud to support ParalympicsGB because we share the same values. As a family run inclusive business, we support individuals to be the best and fulfil their potential.
“As we build up towards Tokyo 2020 we wanted our Sir Robert McAlpine family together with their loved ones, to have the opportunity to find out more about what it takes to make it to the Games and to get personally involved in supporting members of the team and have some fun along the way.”
The BPA is proud to work with Sports Sphere across the commercial rights sales programme for Tokyo 2020 and beyond.
