We support speed and a lot of power!
What happens when passion, respect, integrity, descipline and emotion come together? Exactly! A team achieves more, is constantly moving forward and motivated to face all challenges. This applies not only to companies like tectos but also in sports.
Such a team is the wheelchair basketball team RBB FlinkStones Graz and that is why tectos is now one of the main sponsors of the amazing team.
“I am very pleased that we are now supporting a team which respresents passion, teamwork and ambition in the same way like tectos does. Other similarities: facing every challenge, staying focused and at the same time flexible enough to live out-of-the box thinking“, explains Dr. Dieter Hoefler, CEO of tectos.
Wheelchair basketball is played in more than 80 countries all over the world with more than 25,000 athletes and has been an integral part of the Paralympic Games since 1960.
