PaucoPlast AG, a company specialising in the manufacture of carbon/composite parts, has announced it has expanded it’s partnership with Formula One team Sauber.

PaucoPlast will become the Technical Partner of the Sauber F1 Team. The PaucoPlast logo will be displayed on both the car (on the rear section of the sidepods) and the team’s equipment.

“We have been working very closely with PaucoPlast for many years now,” says Monisha Kaltenborn, Team Principal of the Sauber F1 Team. “For us, PaucoPlast represents a guarantee of production quality and delivery reliability when it comes to complex carbon-fibre parts such as the floor, brake ducts and body elements. The close geographic proximity of the two companies to one another also assists our partnership. I’m delighted that we’re now stepping up our cooperation another notch.”

“The passion and efficiency of the Sauber F1 Team when it comes to a challenge as complex as Formula One excites and inspires us time and again,” says PaucoPlast CEO Philipp Schranz. “It is a philosophy that we apply in every one of our projects. That’s why we’ve been keen to explore a more in-depth partnership.”

PaucoPlast was founded by Paul Pfenninger and Conrad Rapp in Erlenbach on Lake Zurich in 1970. The company produced its first body for the Sauber C3 in 1973.
