Golden’s Motor Tech Enterprises has joinned forces with Banner Recreation and Marine.

Banner Recreation and Marine, with operations in Kelowna and Vernon, has signed a strategic alliance with Randy and Daun Baun of Motor Tech Enterprises. In addition to bringing together two very reputable names in the western Canadian power sports industry, this partnership is expanding Golden’s current authorized service contract to a full sales and service dealership.

Owner of Banner Recreation and Marine, Derek Bannister, said that he looks at this partnership as an extension of the working relationship that they have had for years.

“This is a win-win for not just the Banner and the Baun family, but most importantly for the customer. The Golden trading area offers some of the most diverse and amazing riding areas in Western Canada,” said Banner.

“This partnership has allowed the Baun family to expand upon their current offering, and to offer the same level of service the customer has become accustomed to in Golden. They are the perfect partner for us as we expand our company into other key markets.”

Bannister pointed out that Randy and Daun Baun have been involved in the evolution of the power sports business for more than 30 years. Randy currently sits on the Golden Backcountry Recreation Access Committee (GBRAC) where it represents motorized vehicles annually for both commercial and recreational interests for more than 10 years. Dawn is currently the secretary treasurer of the Golden Snowmobile Club.
