Westlake sponsors NTDA annual golf day
Westlake Tyres has announced that it will sponsor the NTDA’s annual golf day, which will be held on 15 September at the Oxfordshire Golf Club. The brand’s sponsorship will make it the title sponsor of the day. “Westlake Tyres strongly believe that the NTDA is doing a great job of promoting the interests of tyre retailers to a higher professional standard and that is why it is an enormous pleasure sponsoring their Golf Day event. We really look forward to strengthening our partnership with this particular trade association in the UK,” stated Jorge Crespo, European general manager of Eskay Tyres.
NTDA national officer, Peter Gaster, stated: “We welcome Westlake’s involvement in what is already one of the highlights of the tyre industry’s social calendar. Not only will the sponsorship increase awareness of the Westlake brand, but what they have planned for the Golf Day will greatly enhance the event. Westlake has, over the past nine years, become a well-established brand in the UK and this sponsorship underlines the already-close relationship between the brand and many UK tyre dealers.” Westlake will provide a unique trophy, to be played for every year, with the competition winner picking up a replica to keep.
The Westlake NTDA Golf Day is open to all Association members, from the largest national groups to the smallest family run businesses –whether retailers or suppliers– and on the day, participants will be placed in various divisions, according to handicap. Eskay’s Crespo and sales manager Clive Mansfield will represent the Westlake brand at the event. “The annual golf day has always been a popular and prestigious event, but having Westlake on board and involved has raised the bar,” stated Richard Edy, director of the NTDA.
The Westlake NTDA Golf day will culminate in a dinner for all guests, hosted by the sponsor, after which various prizes and awards for the successful golfers will be handed out. This event will be the first time that it is being held and it will be a fitting and relaxing end to what is usually a keenly-contested day’s golf.
