We’re excited to announce that we’ve become the latest Business Club Plus member at Burnley Football Club to strengthen our commitment to the North West.

This move has followed on from our acquisition of Furnico Furniture, based in Colne, which is the factory where we manufacture our chairs and sofas. We were keen to find ways to strengthen our links with the local community which is where a lot of the team at La-Z-Boy Manufacturing live and we’re hoping that the deal with Premier League team Burnley FC will help La-Z-Boy UK firmly establish our presence in the area.

Our president of La-Z-Boy International Keith Wilson visited Turf Moor stadium to meet the team including owner Alan Pace and see our infrastructure in place.

Mr Wilson said: “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.”

Alan Pace, the US businessman who took over the Clarets in December 2020, said he welcomed us as the latest Business Club Plus members.

“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.”

Mid-tier La-Z-Boy branding will be at all Burnley’s home matches as well as on the concourse and external stadium screen, set to launch at the next home game, against Watford on 5 February.

We’re also sponsoring two players at Colne Cricket Club and are looking for more ways it can support clubs and initiatives in the area. Please contact us if you have any ideas.
