Gillingham have announced a new three-year deal with MEMS.
The generator hire specialists were previously main sponsors over a seven-year period, up until the end of last season.
MEMS chairman Colin Jarvis is a boyhood fans of the Gills and is delighted to be back as the club’s main sponsor.
He said: ”We look forward to being part of the continued rise of the club.”
The new deal starts on June 1 and the club’s ground will once again be named the MEMS Priestfield Stadium.
During their previous spell as sponsors the club won the 2012/13 League 2 title.
Gills chairman Paul Scally said: “I am absolutely delighted to welcome Colin and MEMS back to the Club.
“They have been terrific supporters of the business for a very long time, they are passionate about Gillingham FC and I thoroughly look forward to having them on board again.”
MEMS were first main sponsors at the start of the 2011/12 season and continued for seven years. This season’s main backers have been Medway Council, who agreed a deal without a financial commitment.
Under that deal the Gills had access to the training facilities at Beechings Cross and renamed the stadium the Medway Priestfield Stadium.
The announcement was made before GIlls’ home game against Shrewsbury Town, where MEMS were matchday sponsors.
