is a good match for our sustainable corporate philosophy: 'Energy for today.
Caring for tomorrow.'. Energy and sports are both dynamic components which
harmonise well together. What's more, the Schleck brothers' continued success
goes very well with our strategy for growth: our aim is to provide our
customers with a comprehensive, combined electricity and natural gas package,
whilst also continuing to expand our international business operations."
Enovos has already established an attractive customer base in Germany,
France, Belgium and Austria and intends to strengthen and develop its
presence in the B2B segment of the natural gas and electricity sectors of
these countries. The international team, headed by Luxemburg brothers Andy
and Frank Schleck, will guarantee media presence across Europe, featuring
cyclists such as Fabian Cancellara (Switzerland), Jens Voigt, Linus
Gerdemann, Fabian Wegmann (Germany), Daniele Bennati (Italy), Stuart O`Grady
(Australia) and Maxime Monfort (Belgium).

provider is aware of the passion for cycling in Luxemburg and has been
actively involved in the sport for some time. Amongst many other sporting
events, Enovos has been sponsoring cycling events like the "Gala Tour de
France" and the "Tour de Luxembourg" for quite some time.
