E-Bikeshop has announced its latest expansion as part of an ongoing plan to cater to the fastest-growing sector in cycling: e-bikes.
In early 2014, E-Bikeshop expanded from two bike shops to include a new sales and distribution centre based in Surrey. The space was built to accommodate electric bikes, offering large showroom facilities, and a specialist workshop, warehousing and parts centre.
Within 12 months of moving to the new site, the company said that it had become clear that it had already outgrown the property, which was initially set up with 25 per cent more space than required to allow for growth. One year on from this expansion and after months in the planning stages, a new site is now complete and in use.
The UK Electric Bike Company’s director Martin Brown, commented: “We are really excited about our new expansion and are confident we are set up as the UK’s leading independent electric bike supplier to cater for this ever-growing market.
“We started with a range of four bikes and now offer more than 80! We wanted an electric bike to suit everyone and due to this, the product base has grown rapidly. With our recent expansion, we can continue to be more focused on our clients' needs.”
As part of the new 5,000 sq ft expansion, the sales and distribution centre is now offering larger demonstration areas, a bigger range, workshop facilities that have doubled in size, built-in specialist workshop equipment, a larger selection of spare parts held in stock, and more room for warehousing.
