Roger Federer to be JURA’s new Ambassador

12.07.2006 | Off Court

Niederbuchsiten, 12 July 2006 – JURA, the Swiss innovation leader in fully automatic household coffee machines and Roger Federer, the world’s #1 ranked tennis player and reigning Wimbledon, US Open and Australian Open Champion, have entered into a partnership. The Swiss eight-time Grand Slam Winner will represent JURA as an Ambassador both in Switzerland and internationally and spread the message of their common values across the world: performance, precision, prestige and passion for excellence.

 

JURA General Manager, Emanuel Probst, said: “Roger Federer stands for the same qualities as JURA. We share authentic Swissness and we look forward to a long-term partnership. Obviously, Roger Federer is one of the greatest tennis players of all time, but what is equally impressive is his relaxed and genuine personality.” JURA is convinced that this step will further strengthen their international brand profile and fill it with emotions. Roger Federer, too, is looking forward to the cooperation: “JURA and I grew up in Switzerland and conquered the world from there. Their high-quality espresso and coffee machines provide coffee connoisseurs all over the world with enthusiasm. I myself am one of them.“

 

Starting in the Fall of 2006, Federer will be featured in the new JURA image campaign. In addition,

he will personally attend the JURAworld of Coffee event at the company Headquarters in Niederbuchsiten/Solothurn on the occasion of its VIP opening at the end of September.

 

 

About Roger Federer

Born August 8, 1981, in Basel, Switzerland, Roger turned pro in 1998 and has set numerous records and established new standards for his sport ever since. The international superstar is not only celebrated for his victories, but also for his style and grace on and off the tennis court. Just last Sunday, he won his fourth consecutive Wimbledon title, his eighth Grand Slam title. Last year, he became the first man in almost 70 years to win both Wimbledon and the US Open in consecutive years equalling Don Budge in 1937-1938. He won 11 tournaments in both 2004 and 2005, another record. So far in 2006, Federer has won six titles including the Australian Open and Wimbledon and now has won 39 career titles; second most among active players behind Agassi’s 60.

He founded the Roger Federer Foundation in 2003 which currently focuses on helping disadvantaged children in his mother's home country of South Africa. In the spring of this year, he was named a Global Ambassador for UNICEF.

 

 

JURA Elektroapparate AG, a Swiss company with worldwide operations, leads the field of innovation for fully automatic household coffee machines. Founded in Niederbuchsiten, Solothurn, in 1931, the company has 255 employees in Switzerland and 194 abroad working with its foreign distributors. JURA's consolidated revenues in 2005 totalled CHF 294.0 million, 15.9% of which was generated in Switzerland and 84.1% in international markets.

Any company who chooses Roger Federer as its spokesman is well served, not just by the reflection of a superb athlete but in the magnificent qualities of the man himself.
It now weighs on the manufacturer to live up to Rogers’s level of excellence.
