Oswego, NY – Universal Metal Works, Rombough Electric and the Tri-Oswego Triathlon teamed up in 2012 to manufacture new bike racks for use with the event, according to Shane Broadwell, Tri-Oswego Race Director. Their multi-year sponsorship continues in 2013.
Universal Metal Works is a metal fabrication company based in Fulton, New York, and Rombough Electric is an electrical contractor located in Oswego. Both companies service clients throughout Upstate and Central New York.
“We greatly appreciate the support we have received from Universal Metal Works and Rombough Electric,” said Broadwell. “The bike racks they provided us last year were outstanding, and will be very beneficial to our athletes once again this year and going forward.”
