LCS S.p.A., an LCS Group company specializing in the field of automation for intralogistics, officially announces the sponsorship of AS Flyinghetto, a sports association active in indoor and outdoor skydiving.
More specifically, LCS supports AS Flyinghetto in view of the “Fun Buddies” team’s participation in national and international professional competitions, including the next FAI Indoor Skydiving World Cup. The latter is the most important competition in the field and will be attended by only 2 teams for Italy, including the Fun Buddies identified by the nickname “Italia 2”.
Full range support
The partnership with the Fun Buddies team features LCS brand on the athletes’ suits and various other materials used in pre-competition events and official training sessions, the first of which was held on 05-06 September 2020 at the Campo Volo in Reggio Emilia. Gianfranco Silipigni, LCS Group Founder & Executive Chairman, stated: “We are thrilled to have signed this sponsorship that will take us up in the sky all over the world. Accuracy, precision, control, teamwork are the hallmarks of LCS’s work method as they are of skydiving. A perfect match that reminds us to always have the courage to undertake new challenges with great dynamism, without ever losing sight of the goal”. This is the spirit that drives LCS towards ambitious projects around the world and that has led Emanuele Bielli and Gabriele Grossi, members of the Fun Buddies, towards a new Italian skydiving record set on July 26th together with seven other skydivers.
Fabio Zucchini, LCS S.p.A. Service Manager – R&D (pictured above with members of the Fun Buddies team), promoter of the sponsorship and skydiving enthusiast comments: “I approached skydiving in 2018 and from day one I noticed an incredible, as well as unexpected, resemblance with our work: make the best decision quickly, keep your concentration in all situations, pay attention to details, plan your activity carefully, find the timing with your teammates, don’t lose sight of time, listen to those who are most experienced, always check and keep your materials/equipment, always prepare an emergency plan, etc. Everyone should try skydiving because it is the only way to answer the question: who knows what it is like to cross a cloud (without being on a means of transport). You look at the sky and the earth in a completely different way”.
