Telford Tigers are delighted to add Standard Motor Transport as a 2018/19 sponsor.

Standard Motor Transport Ltd. was founded in the late 1920’s when motor transport was a serious alternative to steam lorries and horses and carts! At the same time. C.G.Batsford and Sons began to operate and in 1972 C.G. took over the ownership of SMT, his sons and grandson now managing the business. The original Diamond T trucks have evolved into a fleet of modern curtainsided vehicles ideal for the delivery of palletised goods.

Standard Motor Transport provides an established and comprehensive general haulage service. All our drivers are experienced professionals and our fleet is maintained in-house to the highest standards. Efficient use of load and resource planning has led to the use of our general haulage division by diverse market sectors from heavy industry to food and consumables.

James Batsford, Director from Standard motor transport commented “We’re looking forward to being part of the Tigers team this season and hopefully the guys on the ice will able to bring some silverware back to Telford. This is Standard Motor Transport’s first season sponsoring the team and we’re very excited for the season to begin.”

Tigers General Manager, Tom Watkins commented “The Tigers are excited to welcome new sponsors Standard Motor Transport to the club for the 2018/19 season. I’m very grateful to James Batsford for supporting the club who have taken on the individual player sponsorship of Jonathan Weaver along with a rink advertising board. ”
