In recent years it became clear that the dependency of a long and vulnerable supply chain, with longer lead times, compromises in quality, higher costs, and of course unsustainable processes is coercing the bike industry to change direction. The only Asia-oriented approach is unsustainable in the long run – from commercial, financial, technical, logistical and environmental perspectives.
Fortunately, a change of mind was already about to happen a few years ago and is currently gaining more momentum! Bicycle, eBike, cargo-bike manufacturing is reshoring, near-shoring, friend-shoring for ALL the right reasons. Creating many new opportunities for the producers in Europe aiming to meet the expectations of the consumers with better products at lower cost and a better carbon footprint.
The sppot for the sixth year in a row addresses the bicycle and sporting goods industry with color trends and effects. This year they come bolder, bigger and with more ambitions. Hosted by Posterama Screen Productions - leading European decal manufacturer, and all partners form the sppot ecosystem: TIGER Coatings – global producer of high quality powder coatings, Berlac AG – leader in development and production of liquid coatings, WAGNER – one of the leading global producers of application systems for coatings, EuroTherm - design and construction of coating systems, Duthoo – care and repair products for surface finishing and Lesta – self learning robots and automations for surface finishing – Color Trend Days are offering solutions to the industry.
Manufacturing is coming home, is the topic of this year’s conference. Leading bike producers and design studios will present their motives, burdens, results and experience through the reshoring process. Along with the presentations & discussions, event guests will have a chance to participate at the open space table-top installations for smart and sustainable products. All dedicated to find the right technology for the perfect surface finishing of a bike or any other sporting good.
