“The launch campaign is something our team is very passionate about. There is nothing better than a brand seeing the value in highlighting the people in its organisation,” AusGarage Director and Founder, James Payne, said.
“Through the `local heroes’ campaign we will use a strong narrative to connect local communities with their nearest auto electrician location.”
“I feel there is enormous scope and opportunity to work closely with the Century Yuasa team in launching this brand in New Zealand,” AusGarage Account Director, Bernard Raffaut, said.
“I for one am looking forward to helping knit the brand into the cultural tapestry of the New Zealand community; raising awareness of the brand, placing the spotlight on their quality offering and highlighting the significant backing from an internationally recognised brand that is Century Yuasa”.
“This is a new concept and direction for us in New Zealand; we’re very excited to be partnering with AusGarage to develop the creative and execute the campaign to the NZ market place. It was a no brainer once we met with the AusGarage team; they have worked with some prestigious brands in the Automotive industry and know their stuff when it comes to digital marketing,” Century Yuasa Marketing Manager, Andrew Bottoms, said.
