Aggreko to power Solheim Cup

Temporary power provider Aggreko has entered into its first women’s golf sponsorship by agreeing to partner the 2019 Solheim Cup.

Aggreko will serve as the official temporary power supplier of this year’s edition of the biennial meeting between Europe and the United States, which takes place at Gleneagles in Scotland from September 9-15.

Aggreko is headquartered in the Scottish city of Glasgow. It has partnered seven Ryder Cups, including the Paris edition in 2018, and is a long-term partner of the European Tour.

European star, Mel Reid, will represent Aggreko as the company’s brand ambassador as she competes on the LPGA and LET Tours. She will use an Aggreko-branded bag.

Joe FitzPatrick, Scotland’s Minister for Public Health, Sport and Wellbeing, said: “This is more great news that yet another major business based in Scotland has come on board to support the 2019 Solheim Cup.

“Aggreko have a strong reputation for working alongside some of the world’s leading events and I’m sure they will be a valued partner as Scotland looks to deliver a truly world-class family-focused experience at Gleneagles in September.”
