Fellow European internal hub gear maker SRAM is looking to appoint former Sturmey designers

REVISED: SRAM wants Sturmey staff

SRAM Germany is on the look-out for Sturmey staff, specifically design and test engineers. "German language an advantage but not paramount," says Robert Priest of SRAM in the UK.

SRAM will soon be placing a recruitment advert in the Nottingham Evening Post.

Any former Sturmey employees who’d like to apply before the ad breaks should email

the Swn’furt factory manager, Kia-Uwe Ruede at kruede@sram.com

However, many of the key people already have new jobs, including design manager Steve Riccalls, who now works for Brompton.
