La-Z-Boy secures Clarets deal

La-Z-Boy UK has become a sponsor of Burnley FC.

The manufacturer purchased Colne-based Furnico Furniture last October, which had previously manufactured upholstery under licence, and was keen to find a way to strengthen links with the local community.

The company is also sponsoring two players at Colne Cricket Club and is looking for more ways it can support clubs and initiatives in the area. 

‘Since we bought our manufacturing facility in Lancashire, we’ve been keen to become an active part of the local community and give something back to the area. We are proud to sponsor Burnley FC and we hope it will help people recognise us as a major local employer and encourage them to apply for opportunities to work with us in manufacturing our world-famous recliners, chairs and sofas,’ says Keith Wilson La-Z-Boy International president.

‘It was fantastic to meet the La-Z-Boy directors at Turf Moor recently to welcome them to the Clarets family. It’s great to see the company investing in Lancashire, producing locally and becoming ingrained in the local community. These are qualities that are important to us here at the football club. We’re pleased to have La-Z-Boy onboard as Business Club Plus members and I look forward to enjoying a successful partnership together,’ says Alan Pace, Burnley FC owner.
