This cooperation has existed for a good 15 years now - and it really feels a bit like it always has been and always will be: 4ever in the Czech Republic and WM trading in Winnenden, Germany.
Behind 4ever is the Broz family. Two brothers, an old LPG pig farm and half a world trip to even get there. Situated before the Beskydy Mountains, with 2 meters of snow in winter, the circumstances could hardly be more adverse.
And yet life and the common desire to produce high-quality folding bikes and other special models here in Europe and not in China and Hong Kong brought us together in 2008. Our task: to set up a top assembly facility that is capable of providing the best specialist retailer quality for the discerning German bicycle dealer. At least that's what we wholeheartedly promised our partners in Asia.
And because we always keep promises, we didn’t let the parameters deter us: neither did the Broz brothers in Studenka or our team at WM trading: less than 12 months after our first visit to the Czech Republic, we were already manufacturing custom bikes there – back then it was for Winora & Dahon.
To date we are all very happy with this cooperation with which we have already manufactured bicycles and e-bikes for the most illustrious addresses in Europe. Today the factory is a little gem: completely renovated and expanded step by step and logistically well connected to the European trunk road network. With contacts to all important manufacturers of the best bicycle components. In other words: we can have almost everything assembled there that we need.
And what is relationship-building: the people there brew a perfect beer at home - and distil an even better slivovitz. Ve prospěch.
