Sahara Force India is pleased to announce the extension of its partnership with communications firm STL for a further three years. The agreement marks the continuation of a long-term relationship that has been in place for over ten years.
With a long track record of working with Sahara Force India, STL understands the communication requirements needed for the demanding word of Formula One. Their support includes voice and data communications services, such as the Samsung OfficeServ telephone system installed at the team headquarters in Silverstone and on-location at Grand Prix circuits around the world.
Dr. Vijay Mallya, Team Principal and Managing Director of Sahara Force India: “STL plays an important role in our operations at the factory and at the race track. For example, the telephone system installed at our Silverstone head office and at the wind tunnel in Brackley helps create a virtual office across two sites. As well as this, our travelling staff can attach themselves to our main communications network and use their usual telephone extensions, make calls and access voicemail wherever they are in the world. Understandably, this technology improves the efficiency of our organisation and helps generate significant cost savings.”
Brendon Cross, Managing Director of STL Communications: “We have supplied communication solutions to the team for over a decade now and are delighted to be continuing our relationship with Sahara Force India. As the team’s supplier of voice and data communications, STL has a thorough understanding of the requirements needed to support a successful Formula One team at race venues across the world from the factory at Silverstone. The continuing collaboration between STL and Sahara Force India demonstrates an important synergy between two organisations who share the drive for success through technology, innovation and teamwork.”
STL was established in 1995 by Brendon Cross and has grown to become one of the UK’s leading providers of telephony solutions. Our long-term partnerships with the world’s leading equipment suppliers, means STL offers the very best in systems, network services and mobility. STL is recognised as a pioneer in innovative communication solutions such as GreenMinutes, Online Billing and OneBill.

About Sahara Force India Formula One Team
Sahara Force India Formula One Team is currently in its fourth year of competition in the FIA Formula One World Championship. The team was born in 2008 when Dr. Vijay Mallya, Chairman of India’s iconic UB Group and Kingfisher Airlines, launched the first-ever Indian Formula One team, introducing a whole new era for Indian motorsport. The team incorporates the colours of the Indian flag and is a sporting representation of the emerging generation of young, aspirational, fast-paced global Indians and the growing strength of India as a nation. In 2011 a historic partnership was agreed as Sahara India Pariwar became co-owners of the Silverstone-based team.
