Just over 2 years from opening a new site in Farnham, Surrey - E-Bikeshop announce their latest expansion, part of an on-going plan to cater for cycling's fastest growing sector. In early 2014 E-Bikeshop expanded from 2 regular bike shops into a new Sales & Distribution centre based in Surrey UK. Built specifically around electric bikes and located centrally in the UK as a hub, offering large showroom facilities, a specialist workshop, warehousing and parts centre. Within 12 months it was clear that they had already outgrown the new site, which was initially setup with 25% more space than required to allow growth. This set the stage for further expansion plans. Now another year on and months in the planning, the new site is complete. 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 actually started with a range of 4 bikes and now offer more than 80! We want an electric bike to suit anyone, hence the product base has grown rapidly and with our recent expansion, we can continue to be more focused on our clients' needs. "
As part of a 5,000 sq ft expansion, the new sales and distribution centre is now offering: larger demonstration areas, a bigger range, double the workshop facilities, built in specialist workshop equipment, a larger selection of spare parts held in stock and more room for warehousing. Mr Brown, continued :-
" Having everything to hand in one central site means we can offer the fastest and most efficient solution when it comes to holding stock and supporting the products we offer by having a full supply of spares to hand and the knowledge to back it up. It's really exciting to watch something grow so fast, in fact, we are already planning further ideas! "
New larger workshop bays mean E-Bikeshop can prepare bikes faster than ever before, often offering set up and delivery within 24 hours from the time of ordering. It also means that any further service and support time is cut, with a turnaround window of just 1 hour on most workshop bookings. E-Bikeshop continues to operate strictly by appointment. With product ranges now split into categories including Mountain Biking, Road, Town & Trekking in what's said to be the largest eBike display in the UK. Even the accessories area has been expanded to fit with the new company image with more options tailored specifically for the client's requirements. Other areas include a filming studio, packaging bays and a bar / chill out area. Not all the excitement's happening on-site either, the Surrey-based company has also expanded their website with new features, enhanced product lines and more informative guides. They completed a new world record this year (20,000km+ on eBikes around Europe) and their exclusive eBike Owners Club is growing at a huge rate with the monthly meets proving popular and more members than ever.To find out what electric bikes are all about, go here and click 'Begin Learning Now'.
