Company Profile

The company is founded in 1988 by a group of engineers and bicycle experts. At the beginning, it was a small manufacturer with capacity less than 1,000 set a month. From then, the company kept on developing in themselves in term of manufacturing technology and design.

With the support from customers and suppliers, it is no become leading bicycle part manufacturer in Thailand with capacity reach 30,000 bicycle a month and have more than 1,000 items of products to choose from.

The product line covers almost the entire bicycle ranging from hubs and chain wheels with cranks to bicycle frames, forks, and handle bars.

Many share the same pain in management of inventory and production and integration with back end office.
