"The company started as a one man band back in 2008 but with dedication and persistence, company director Martin Brown has grown the business into the UK’s largest independent eBike supplier - and it is now one of the biggest in Europe. With a new Sales & Distribution centre in Farnham, Surrey opened last year; they are already planning their next expansion. Well done."
