We have enjoyed a successful partnership because our brands are highly complementary: we are family run businesses with a strong heritage, a history of innovation, and a desire to embrace new technologies. Strong partnerships are the lifeblood of an independent team like Williams and the continued support of Oris will help us fight for success this season.”
