Brother International SA announces associate sponsorship of Team Emtek Yamaha

Brother International South Africa, the leader in quality innovative print, imaging, labelling and sewing markets, is proud to announce its partnership with Team Emtek Yamaha for the balance of the 2013 National Super Series South African season.

Brother International is a brand that is well known and trusted in South Africa. Its key products include laser printers, multifunction centres, fax machines, labellers, label printers and a wide range of home and industrial sewing machines.

Being no stranger to motorsport, Brother SA has been involved in off-road racing for a number of years and is now broadening its market by getting involved in road racing as an associate sponsor of Team Emtek Yamaha.

Yamaha SA re-entered the South African road-racing scene after an absence of three years and concluded a partnership arrangement with Team Emtek Yamaha at the beginning of 2013.

Team Emtek Yamaha is made up of three male riders and one female rider. Rob Portman and Dylan White compete in the Superbike class, while Dean Vos and Janine Mitchell compete in the very competitive Supersport class.

“We are really excited and thrilled to welcome Brother International as a partner to our team. It is an absolute pleasure to be aligned with such an amazing company and brand and I am sure the team will make them proud,” said Team Manager of Team Emtek Yamaha, John Mitchell. “We look forward to a very successful and rewarding association with the team at Brother,” he continued.

“There is a lot of synergy between the two brands, both being focused on superior Japanese build quality by companies with diverse product ranges. In fact, both companies are more than a century old,” said Marketing Manager Dale de Villiers. “This is our first venture into road racing and we are happy to announce our partnership with Team Emtek Yamaha. We wish the team all the success for the remainder of the season,” De Villiers concluded.
