A prestigious sports event has scored a significant corporate sponsor.
Hytec, which manufacturers bath products, will be a major sponsor for the 2014 RBC Cup, which takes place at Greater Vernon’s Kal Tire Place May 10 to 18, 2014.
“We believe in being part of our community, so when a national sporting championship of this calibre comes to this area, we want to support it,” said Michael Sanfilippo, Hytec marketing manager.
The national junior hockey championships will draw players, officials and fans from across Canada.
“It gives us an opportunity to strengthen our brand awareness and remind people about our presence in this area,” said Sanfilippo.
Hytec, which is owned by the Kohler Company, operates a 130,000-square-foot facility in Spallumcheen and employees 150 to 215 people.
Although the bulk of its activity is for the residential market, Hytec has also created custom products for Wynn Hotels in Las Vegas and Vernon’s Sparkling Hill resort.
RBC Cup officals welcome Hytec’s participation.
“Hytec is deeply rooted in the North Okanagan and a prominent contributor to the region’s economy,” said Mike Lane, tournament chairperson.
“It’s good for our event to have a partner of Hytec’s stature and we certainly appreciate their support.”
