Finding European companies especially Italian, willing to invest euros in sponsorship with the current economic crisis is almost like winning at the lottery for satellite or private teams.
Despite the the construction business in Italy being down almost 18% in 2012 (requests for new mortgages are down 50%) Palladio SpA who is market leader in the development of systems for stainless steel and zinc-coated doors and windows has signed a collaboration agreement with Team Go&Fun Honda Gresini and will become one of the team’s official sponsors.
Palladio’s logos will visible on the leathers of both Alvaro Bautista and Bryan Staring as well as in the team hospitality, which will also contain information about the company’s activities and products.
Team Go&Fun Honda Gresini with Bautista will be present at the MotorBike Expo at Verona later this month (January 18-20) with their MotoGP racing pit garage, two show bikes and mechanics truck.
Leonardo Valente (Palladio Spa Managing Director): “Through this sponsorship agreement Palladio is able to extend its brand image overseas and establish itself in the international market, as well as associating itself with the world of sport and all the positives values this represents. The importance of teamwork and continual technological research are cornerstones of development here at Palladio®, where we work alongside architects and project managers to create avant-garde products - from thermo-acoustic isolation to anti-break security and anti-flood protection – that are extremely personal, professional and aesthetically pleasing.
Fausto Gresini (Team Manager Go & Fun Honda Gresini): “It is always an important moment to welcome a new sponsor on board, especially when an established company Palladio opts to collaborate with Team Go&Fun Honda Gresini in order to develop its brand in specific overseas markets. We are looking forward to enjoying some exciting times to come with them in the future and sharing the passion for technology and professionalism that we have in common.”
