January 2015: Gil Dudson Sponsorship – Widnes Vikings

Gil Dudson SponsorshipWidnes Vikings are pleased to announce that Kaltek Automation UK Ltd has secured player sponsorship of newly signed Gil Dudson.

George Brady, a resident of Widnes for many years, enjoyed a long standing relationship with the Widnes Vikings and through his own business Kaltek Automation UK Ltd, sponsored matches for a number of years.

This year, Kaltek Automation UK Ltd will continue its association with the Club in honour of George and Gil Dudson's sponsorship is one of a number of ways the company will be backing the Vikings in the First Utility Super League 2015 season.

Dave Rolt, Commercial Manager of the Widnes Vikings commented: "Kaltek Automation UK Ltd are a longtime sponsor of the Widnes Vikings. I am delighted that they have renewed their sponsorship this year. They jumped at the opportunity to become player sponsor for Gil Dudson in addition to joining the Knights of Naughton Park and offering match ball sponsorship at the Warrington and Leeds games."

The company, based at the Heron Business Park, was founded by George Brady who sadly passed away last year.

Rolt added: "It's great to see that the new management are keen to follow in George's footsteps and are continuing to support the Widnes Vikings. Their support is very much appreciated." Dianne Grant from Kaltek Automation UK Ltd commented: "The Widnes Viking matches always have a great atmosphere and really bring the Widnes people together. George had always liked this aspect and sponsored the matches in the hope to help carry this wonderful community spirit on.

We, at Kaltek Automation, would like to continue this on in George’s memory and are delighted to be given the opportunity to sponsor Gil Dudson. We believe Gil will be a great addition to the team and will help them improve on the brilliant year that they have just had. Kaltek Automation UK Ltd would like to wish Widnes Vikings every success in the coming season."

George had been putting up a courageous fight against oesophageal cancer but the last week had seen his health deteriorate rapidly, although George’s renowned positive attitude was with him to the end. George has been Managing Director of Kaltek Automation UK for 18 years, many of you have known him longer than that. The staff here at Kaltek will miss him immensely.


Kaltek Automation was of enormous pride to George and he was adamant that the ‘show’ must go on. His work ethics were installed in every member of staff here, and we will ensure that his visions for Kaltek will always be foremost in our minds. We would like to thank you all for your support and concerns during this difficult time, it has been overwhelming the amount of support George has received from you all.
