Appselec Becomes Major Sponsor
In our first major announcement for 2019 and extremely exciting news for the team, Victorian-based electrical construction company Appselec have not only continued their support of the team but have stepped up to become the teams’ joint major sponsor.
From next year onwards, the team will be known as Butterfields-Appselec powered by Van D’am Racing, showing the strong bond that has been formed between the teams two major sponsors.
While the team will still be primarily South Australian based, 2019 will see a larger number of Victorian riders represented which coincides with many of the National Road Series races being run in the state.
This sport is not possible without the generosity of sponsors and I personally am super glad Appselec have stepped up their commitment to the team. Having got to know much more of the company and community, including owner David Jonker, it is a pleasure to be associated with such a well run business.” Matthew de Vroet, assistant team manger.
The Victorian boys have been present joining the regular Appselec bunch ride along beach road in the mornings and are looking forward to interacting with the sponsor more throughout the year as the relationship grows.
The Melbourne based privately owned tier one company continued to run their extensive electrical construction business in Victoria, while their expansion in Queensland only got bigger this year. Appselec have divisions covering all aspects of design, construction and electrical installation services and have over 310 full-time employees. They continue to grow with a solid client base and a non-wavering commitment and reputation for “delivering without compromise.”
Owner David Jonker is an avid cyclist himself and believes in the team ethos of riders both focussing on university studies as well as racing their bikes. This balance between riders is a large part of the reason he has chosen to continue to support the team as he feels passionate about the project.
We look forward to rewarding Appselec’s commitment to the team by having our biggest year yet next year. The team has come a long way from its inception in 2016 and with some exciting things planned and some loyal sponsors returning, it is already looking like a good year.
This time of year is always filled with new announcements so stay tuned to hear more from the team as well as some exciting new signings in the coming weeks!
