Regularly placed in the Top-8 World Cup, the French bobsleigh team has set itself an ambitious objective: to go for a medal in Beijing in 2022. To help them achieve this objective, the Bontaz industrial group, an automotive equipment manufacturer based in Haute Savoie and an official partner of the French Ice Sports Federation (FFSG), is supporting the French team thanks to the work of its R&D teams on bobsleigh.

Bontaz, TECHNICAL PARTNER OF THE FRENCH BOBSLEIGH

As a leading automotive equipment manufacturer, Bontaz is specialized in the development and production of hydraulic systems. Nearly one vehicle out of two is today equipped with a Bontaz part in the engine.

Operating in 10 countries around the world, Bontaz is committed to the FFSG and more specifically the French bobsleigh team to support them until Beijing 2022. In addition to financial support, the objective is to design a bob made in France. An innovative and major challenge that the engineers of the industrial group are trying to meet.

"This partnership with the French bobsleigh team is a great opportunity for our R&D teams to apply our industrial know-how. We are very excited to see a "Bontaz" bobsleigh participating in the Games." said Daniel Anghelone, CEO of the Bontaz Group.

This enthusiasm is shared by Nathalie Péchalat, President of the FFSG: "The work provided by Bontaz is a real added value for our athletes. This partnership is very important to us because it is a real team effort that allows the involvement of our champions, who are eager to perform on the slopes. Some of them, like Romain Heinrich, are very involved alongside the R&D teams."

As part of the partnership, the Bontaz Group has launched a web series to follow the backstage of the French team: EN GLISSE VERS PEKIN 2022. These short videos (3 to 5 minutes) are mainly broadcast on the social networks of the Bontaz brand, the French Ice Sports Federation and the athletes concerned.
