OUT OF THE BOX
Manor Marussia F1 Team and Flex Box announce Team Partnership for the remainder of the 2015 season
Silverstone, UK – 2 July 2015
The Manor Marussia F1 Team today announced a new partnership with Flex Box, a leading worldwide manufacturer and supplier of new shipping, storage and reefer containers. As an Official Team Partner for the remainder of the season, the relationship gets underway with effect from this weekend’s 2015 Formula 1 British Grand Prix, the team’s home race, where Flex Box branding will make a striking new addition to the team’s MR03B Formula 1 cars.
An international company based in Hong Kong, Flex Box manufactures and ships in excess of 25,000 containers of all types worldwide every year, with inventory in China, Europe, Australia, New Zealand and North & South America.
“We are very pleased to welcome Flex Box to the Manor Marussia F1 Team. We are two very ambitious businesses, aspiring to dramatic growth on the international stage and making a major impact in our respective industries, said John Booth, Team Principal. “This is our second partnership announcement in just a few weeks, so these are exciting times in our team’s development. It is very rewarding for us to be able to welcome likeminded brands to join us on that journey and assist them in achieving their own global objectives.”
“I am delighted to have agreed a partnership between Flex Box and the Manor Marussia F1 Team, and to be announcing this at the team’s home Grand Prix this weekend,” said Henrik Nielsen, Managing Director & Owner, Flex Box Ltd. “We have a strong pedigree in sports car racing, with partnerships across nine different categories, so Flex Box already has a presence in motor sport. We are very pleased to be extending that presence into Formula 1 for the first time, a move that is representative of our global ambitions for the growth of our business.”
