Australia's leading hydraulic hose and fitting company, Enzed have announced on the eve of the Sandown 500, a long term partnership with Brad Jones Racing and his OzEmail Racing Team.

Enzed and its franchisees will continue as a major sponsor of the Albury based team for a minimum of another two years.

"We have been delighted with our partnership with Brad Jones Racing over the past eighteen months and it was unanimously decided last week by the Enzed Franchisees to continue to build on the relationship well into the future," said Enzed Franchisee Advisory group chairman, Mr Clive Jacobs.

"A unique part of our arrangement with BJR is that a majority of our franchisees receive benefits. When you consider the size and vastness of our service centre and Hose Doctor network, it is a credit to the team at BJR that they have been able to work so successfully with us.

"I know that the franchisees are very excited about working with the race team for at least the next two years," Mr Jacobs concluded.

For team principal Brad Jones, the signing of Enzed to a multi-year contract has a special meaning: "I cannot tell you how happy we are to have Enzed with us for the long term. We have worked extremely hard with their network this year and I feel their commitment to us for the future is the best 'pat on the back' we could receive.

"V8 Supercar racing is getting more expensive every year and it's no coincidence that the most successful teams have the strongest partner and sponsor base. Enzed are one of our major sponsors and their support and strength will only make us more competitive in the future," Jones added.

"I'd like to sincerely thank the franchisees for their vote of confidence and their fantastic support over the last eighteen months."

The length of the partnership between Enzed and BJR wasn't the only area to increase, with Brad Jones also announcing an increased investment from the fluid connection giant.

"In a competitive marketplace, Enzed have continued to grow their business and I'd like to think, that in some way, our partnership has helped them achieve that. With our marketing program to the Enzed network increasing from next year onwards, so will the financial support that we receive. All in all, it's a great marriage," Jones concluded.
