Trust have pledged their support to ECTA Racing and their brilliant, brave and talented Isle of Man TT road race rider Mark Purslow.
ECTA Racing is the passion project of Stockport business ECTA Training. ECTA Training is based on Lancashire Hill and provide training to the utilities industry. This sees them specialising in gas, electric and plumbing training. While the recent boom in the smart meter industry has seen them lead the way in that training specialism too.
Trust have worked with ECTA since 2014 helping them to rebrand, launch a new website and to cement their position as the UK’s leading provider of smart meter, gas, electric and trade skills courses in the UK. The two Stockport companies also recently worked together on an ambitious nationwide recruitment campaign to highlight the benefits of retraining as a smart meter installer with ECTA.
So when the opportunity came to create an extension of the ECTA Training brand, ECTA immediately turned to their branding partner Trust. This has seen Trust creating the main racing team’s brand, but also designing Mark’s race helmet, the vehicle wrap for the team bus and the sponsorship stickers for the team’s three road racing bikes.
Dave Berry from ECTA said,
“It was the natural extension of our working relationship with Trust to use their branding expertise with the new racing team. It was also great that they wanted to put their support behind the team.”
Stuart Bradley from Trust said,
“It’s not every day you get the opportunity to sponsor an Isle of Man TT road racer! We love working with ECTA, and their passion for training and their passion for racing is infectious. It’s great to be able support them. We hope Mark has a successful and safe season and that he can get the names of all the sponsors on the podium.”
Mark Purslow and ECTA Racing are currently taking part in North West 200 in Northern Ireland. You can watch live coverage of the event here…on the BBC
