The largest bicycle manufacturer in Romania and one of the largest in Europe
The company was founded 2008 following the conclusion of a long-term cooperation agreement for the production of bicycles and spare parts, with one of the largest players in the European sporting goods market, Décathlon France. As a result of this strategic partnership, the bike with the number 3,500,000 was assembled by VeloCity, our factory in Resita, on February 21, 2020.
According to the development plan of the factory, NextCity S.A. started manufacturing aluminum rims in 2014 and plans to implement a series of specific projects related to the production of components (frames, forks, seat tubes, handlebars). In a larger context of development, the company plans to expand the project of a new factory, SportCity, for new customers, in the field of regular and electric bikes.
NextCity's bicycle manufacturing center in Resita, established 2008
An €3.5 million investment was deployed to help us to become from „zero“, in less than 4 years, Romania’s leading bicycle manufacturer by far.
Almost €1 million were dedicated, in 2014, to boost a new rim manufacturing process meant to reach 800,000 units per year.
Another €500,000 were invested, in 2016, in order to sustain a 1 million bicycles order book for the next period.
Until today, our factory has produced over 3.8 million bicycles, with an average of 1,240 units/day but also with peaks of 2,000 units/day.
