NETCO and EC-OG Partnership

Stuart Smith 2016

EC-OG are pleased to now be supporting the North East Trail Centre Organisation (NETCO).

Through this partnership, EC-OG will provide NETCO with invaluable business advice and guidance. Since establishing the high growth engineering services company in 2013, the team at EC-OG have developed a wealth of entrepreneurial experience. This entrepreneurial background will be very helpful to NETCO who are in the early stages of bringing a large, high quality mountain bike trail centre to the North East. This trail centre would bring an easily accessible and fun activity to the area to encourage people to explore the outdoors.

Formed as a charity in April 2015, the NETCO vision has been sculpted by a group of enthusiastic volunteers. Prompted by a gap in trail centres in the North East, the keen mountain bikers came together to discuss the prospect of making it a reality. Over a year on, significant progress has been made. The team has set up a website ( and has succeeded in raising some much needed funding to go towards site feasibility studies. Other fundraising avenues are being considered, including events and sponsorship.

To make the process of establishing the North East’s first trail centre more efficient, EC-OG have come on board to share their knowledge.

NETCO are currently running a jersey design competition to find a design for next year’s racing jerseys. The deadline for entries is midnight on the Wednesday 9th November. For more information, please click on the following link, .
