Burdens, a leading supplier of products and services to the infrastructure, civils and utilities markets, has demonstrated the importance added value partnerships by helping long-term customer, Phil Reed of East Coast Construction (NE) Ltd use his rebate agreement to fund his racing team.
East Coast Racing is owned and managed by racing enthusiast Phil and champions upcoming motorsport star, the ‘General’ Lee Johnston. Burdens has a longstanding partnership with East Coast Construction (NE) Ltd through its branch in Leeds, whose Branch Manager Graham Price became aware of the adrenaline-fuelled sideline.
He explains: “Phil’s commitment to East Coast Racing and Lee Johnston in the nurturing of his race career is inspiring. When we became aware of all that he does for the sport, in his own time, we were keen to show our support, which is why agreed that part of his rebate agreement could go towards funding Lee Johnston and the team this season. It goes to show that when you have a strong partnership in place with Burdens, we are able to offer flexibility as and when the customer may need it.
“We understand Lee is fresh off the back of a win and wish him the very best of luck in his upcoming races - we can’t wait to see what accolade he achieves next!”
Phil Reed added: “Motorsport has always been a passion of mine and I have raced both cars and bikes of various forms over the years before starting East Coast Racing.
“Burdens has always been a reliable civils and utilities partner to my main construction business and Graham at the Leeds branch has been extremely supportive of East Coast Racing. It was fantastic that from the strength of our partnership they were able to be flexible and allow me to use my rebate agreement and add the Burdens logo on to our kit this year. We’ve just celebrated a Superstock race victory at the Vauxhall International North West 200 so we’re hoping it continues to bring us luck!”
