The Bicycle Manufacturing Center in Resita
Production was launched in 2008 with an initial investment of € 5 million. In less than 5 years, starting from “zero”, VeloCity became the leading bicycle manufacturer in Eastern Europe. The average output was 1.240 units/day and reached peaks of 2.000 units/day frequently during the summer season. After passing the 3.7 milllion units' threshold at the end of 2020, we are preparing now to overcome the 4 Million Bikes milestone.
According to the company’s development strategy, the factory in Resita started producing aluminum rims in 2014 and will enter into partnerships to produce other bicycle parts (wheels, frames, forks, saddle tubes, handlebars, gears, etc.).
