Mecatecno – Caroline Sandiford
Since the launch of the brand into the electric market in 2011, Mecatecno and Jim Sandiford’s have worked tirelessly to establish the brand. They always knew that it would be a fair task pitching against the market leader but a belief in their products gave them the drive. With a ‘tip of the hat’ to the models of the past the ‘Dragonfly’ was always the goal. It’s been two years of ‘almost’ there but at this year’s Dirt Bike Show they will launch the T18 model.
With a machine on display on the stand and one for customers to ride in the try-out area, Caroline of Jim Sandiford Ltd is undoubtedly very excited about the launch: “We’ve been waiting for this model but did not want to launch until we were sure it was absolutely ready. With three base models in the range, we have been building and building the brand awareness for six years now. Committed and passionate, I’ve been lucky to see glimpses of the development and also to be there when it was debuted in France at the World Electric Event in June.”
To expand the brand in the UK further and give customers in both the north and south of the UK a base to view the machines, Sandiford have rationalised their UK Dealer Network with the appointment of two ‘Prime Dealers’. Sandiford Off Road, based in Burnley, Lancashire for the north, and P and J Vehicles of Latchingdon, Essex for the south, where all models will be on display at all times. Stand 14a Hall 3, Dirt Bike Show, 26th to 29th October 2017.
