Vacon continues Alpine Ski Team cooperation

AC drives manufacturer Vacon continues as the official main sponsor of Alpine Ski Team Finland and Ski Sport Finland during the season of 2013-2014. This renewed sponsorship agreement continues the active and long-term cooperation the parties started in 2006.

"Alpine skiing is a dynamic sport which shares characteristics of the Vacon brand such as a passion for excellence, solid professionalism and speed control," says Joni Lampinen, Director, Brand and Marketing Communications of Vacon. "It is therefore natural for us to continue our cooperation with Alpine Ski Team Finland as the team looks forward to the 2014 Winter Olympic Games."

"We are very proud that a successful company such as Vacon continues as a partner for Alpine Ski Team Finland. This tells us that the business world and alpine skiing share similar values: to be on top and succeed. Our target is set on the 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Sochi. This agreement will give stability to our teams while they prepare for this important goal. We believe that the dynamic, international and positive image of alpine skiing will be connected to Vacon even stronger in the future," says Janne Leskinen, CEO of Ski Sport Finland.

Vacon is the main sponsor of Finnish men's, women's and junior alpine ski teams. Alpine Ski Team Finland will participate in Vacon's customer and personnel events as per agreement. "Both alpine skiing and the AC drives business require long-term dedication and the ability to react quickly. this cooperation also gives Vacon a great opportunity to offer inspiring experiences to our customers and personnel in Finland, the Nordic countries, Central Europe and North America," Lampinen concludes.

Vacon's logo will be visible on the official clothing that the Alpine Ski Team wears during races, training and PR events. Additionally, the logo will be used in the official training and racing clothes of the Finnish Junior Alpine Ski Team. Stories, videos and news of preparing for Sochi 2014 will be published on Vacon`s website and in social media channels.
