Aebi has been confirmed as another major co-sponsor of the 2013 Federal Wrestling and Alpine Festival in Burgdorf in the Swiss Emmental region. The organisational committee headed by its president Res Aebi has selected the renowned Burgdorf-based manufacturer of agricultural equipment for the sponsorship. This completes another important step in the financing of Switzerland’s largest sporting event of the year 2013.

The organisational committee of the 2013 Federal Wrestling and Alpine Festival in Burgdorf, Emmental (Eidgenössisches Schwing- und Älplerfest, 2013 ESAF) has officially announced Aebi as another major co-sponsor. Within the scope of a ceremony in Burgdorf, the sponsorship agreement was signed today by the committee president, Res Aebi, together with the majority shareholder and administrative board president of the Aebi Schmidt Group, Peter Spuhler, as well as Aebi Schmidt Group CEO Walter T. Vogel. Res Aebi is particularly pleased to have Aebi on board as a Burgdorf-based major co-sponsor. Walter T. Vogel expressed his delight, saying: “The 2013 Federal Festival and Aebi are a perfect match. Both in wrestling and in the manufacture of our products, the right technique and traction are the key factors for success.” Peter Spuhler added: “I’m very happy to be a part of the 2013 Federal Festival again. All the more so now that it’s taking place right at Aebi’s doorstep.”

With the addition of Aebi, five of the six planned major co-sponsors of the 2013 ESAF have now been confirmed. The commitment of the other major co-sponsors alongside Aebi, namely UBS, Migros, Feldschlösschen Getränke AG and the insurance group Mobiliar had already been confirmed in January 2011. The sixth partnership deal planned at this level is likely to be signed by the middle of the year.
