Creating brand awareness is essential to the KGN Pillinger business model.
For the past seven years we have participated in an active sponsorship program within the MCE British Superbike Championship. In 2011 we saw our sponsored team Swan Yamaha win the Championship Title in arguably the most thrilling finale in the history of the series.
We continue to support and build on our partnerships with teams and riders and look forward to the 2017 season as an official sponsor and Water Engineering Partner of the MCE BSB Championship together with a dedicated race for the new season whilst continuing our personal sponsorship of Joe Collier, the 2015 Supersport Evo Championship winner, who rides for the Boast Plumbing Supplies Team in the Ducati Trioptions Cup.
For 2017, KGN will be celebrating its 50th birthday. In recognition of this and our recent expansion of the KGN Motorsport Fabrication brand, supplying motor racing teams at the event with specialist stainless steel and aluminium products such as wash down tanks and tyre racks, we are delighted to announce that KGN will have a dedicated race named after us in the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship – The KGN Pillinger 50 Round of the Pirelli National Superstock 1000 in association with Black Horse.
The Pirelli National Superstock 1000 Championship was held on Sunday 16th April 2017 and was won by Richard Cooper.
We are delighted to be recognised for our achievement in engineering for the past 5 decades and, as keen supporters of the BSB Series for many years, to be rewarded by the championship itself.
Our expanded portfolio into motorsport sponsorship, matches our continued investment in engineering technology, stainless steel and aluminium fabrication services which we believe will benefit all teams in the future.
Working over the years with SMR Yamaha, Be Wiser Kawasaki and ePayMe Yamaha along with the BSB Series provides excellent opportunities for us to create brand synergy with like-minded companies whose ethos fits our own.
