Redactie | 29 november 2010 | Epson

Epson kan zich van nu af aan Official Office Equipment Partner noemen van Manchester United. Epson, producent van o.a. printers, projectoren en scanners, is sinds vrijdag j.l. officiëel sponsor van de club.

Om de samenwerking te vieren, werd er flink uitgepakt. Epson nodigde ruim 100 relaties en pers uit om de wedstrijd op zaterdag 27 november tegen Blackburn Rovers (in Old Trafford) te ervaren. De uitslag was er eentje om bij te watertanden: 7-1 voor de thuisclub.

Tijdens het launchevent in Old Trafford sprak Epson’s Global President, Mr Minoru Usui (foto): “The partnership with Manchester United aligns Epson with an exciting and globally recognised brand, bringing us closer to our customers worldwide. Leading the way through constant creativity and innovation both brands share a commitment to achieving the highest standards. Our vision to excite and inspire customers is represented by Manchester United’s success on the pitch and the unique printer and projector technologies for which Epson is renowned”.

Door deze samenwerking hoopt Epson dichter bij haar klanten en hun belevingswereld te komen staan. Ook Manchester United is blij met de nieuwe sponsor. Manchester United’s chief executive David Gill: “We are obviously delighted to have Epson as one of our commercial partners with immediate effect and are looking forward to developing an exciting communications programme that helps us both achieve our business goals. Epson is a superb global brand, that sits perfectly alongside our existing partners.”
