Interior Specialist Sponsors Hit Automotive TV Series
San Diego & Montebello, CA, December 21, 2011 – Transforming otherwise mundane automotive interiors is what California-based Katzkin Leather, Inc. is best known for, and will demonstrate in signing a major sponsorship agreement with Motorz™ (www.motorz.tv), the highly regarded automotive TV series.
Based in San Diego, Motorz will showcase Katzkin’s custom leather interiors and their installation as a part of their hands-on, ‘how-to’ TV series. Chris Duke, Motorz host and producer said, “Our relative proximity to Katzkin made it ideal to show how to order and properly install their kits to our growing audience on the Internet, DirecTV and DISH Network. Katzkin is not only the most respected leather seat interior manufacturer, they are also being used by the automotive manufacturers themselves as upgrades in many of their most popular vehicles.”
Katzkin’s Vice-President of Marketing, David Giddings stated, “Chris’ on-air talent and production capabilities are what first attracted us to Motorz. The opportunity to build awareness of our company and product line through a partnership with Motorz is very exciting to us. We believe Chris’ personality, expert installation, and demonstration of our kits will really resonate with the automotive enthusiast market. This, in addition to some innovative promotions, should make for a really exciting season!”
