Last Thursday, barely 100 days after Thomas Binggeli, the new CEO of BMC, took a stake in the BMC Group, he presented the future of the BMC Group of Velo Friends.
With a clear commitment to the Swiss bicycle production plants in Grenchen and Oberwangen and with a new group strategy, Thomas Binggeli is leading the newly renamed BMC Group into the future. The management team is being reorganized and the personnel strengthened. The bicycle brands BMC and Bergamont as well as the electric bike brand Stromer receive honed brand profiles and a model range aligned toward synergies.
More detailed information about the new strategy and the press release can be found on the BMC website.
We are delighted to have the opportunity to shape the future together with you, whether you are a customer, commercial partner or fan, and we hope that you enjoy reading this February newsletter.
