DY Corporation has been announced as the latest partner of the PyeongChang 2018 Winter Olympic and Paralympic Games.
The South Korean company will be listed as a sponsor in the category of car washing machines and, in addition to providing financial support, will ensure that all Games vehicles are kept clean for the duration of the multi-sport events.

We are sure that they will be proud to be part of the Games journey with us and will ensure our Games fleet is kept to the highest standard of cleanliness.”
