Altherm Window Systems partner with NNZ and Silver Ferns

Netball New Zealand and Altherm Window Systems are excited to announce a new major partnership.

Altherm Windows Systems will be a major partner of Netball New Zealand and the Silver Ferns, which will see the Altherm logo added to the black dress.

Altherm Window Systems is a brand of APL Window Solutions, who are a leader in the supply of aluminium extrusion and systems for windows and doors for the New Zealand construction industry. APL Window Solutions have a passion for sport and have a long history of supporting high performance sport, community initiatives and athletes across New Zealand.

The three year partnership will be launched during the Silver Ferns three-Test series against England in Christchurch on the 20, 22 and 24 September.

Netball is well-engrained in the culture of New Zealand, and is the number one sport for women with 140,000 players competing at different levels across the country. The Silver Ferns are the current world champions, having beaten rivals Australia in a tense 2019 Netball World Cup final.

Altherm Window Systems have been part of the New Zealand construction scene for 40 years, producing New Zealand made high performing window and door systems. Altherm has a network of 19 independent manufacturers, many of who are family-owned.

“Netball New Zealand and the Silver Ferns partnership was a natural fit for Altherm Window Systems, and we are proud to be in a position to support the talent and passion of the Silver Ferns, and nurture the culture that netball has built in the community game,” said CEO of APL Window Systems Dave Downey.

“Many of our staff, our manufacturers, builders and homeowners have either stood at the side of the court cheering on family members or played themselves – netball is a part of our lifestyle and we are excited to be involved through our Altherm brand.”

Netball New Zealand CEO Jennie Wyllie said she was delighted to welcome Altherm as part of the Netball New Zealand and Silver Ferns whānau.

“Netball New Zealand, the Silver Ferns and Altherm share a lot in common, most importantly engaging with and producing the best outcomes for our wider New Zealand community. The valued support of Altherm is a exciting partnership for the Silver Ferns as they prepare for our pinnacle events of the Commonwealth Games next year and the Netball World Cup in 2023."

The Silver Ferns have a packed schedule over the next three years, with the Constellation Cup, the Commonwealth Games and the Netball World Cup all falling within the sponsorship agreement catchment.
