Following the official renaming of the German subsidiary as “Bafang Electric GmbH”, Bafang continues its ongoing success story in the German market. An extended range of tasks and planned activity, plus additional new staff, make the move to much larger company facilities in October 2020 now essential.
Source Bafang Germany GmbH – Bafang, one of the world’s leading manufacturers of e-mobility components and complete drive systems, is moving its German branch to a new location in Hövelhof (near Paderborn), only a few kilometers south of the previous location, but with considerably more space.
Until now, the sales department for the DACH region, the technical service department and warehouse had occupied premises with a total floorspace of 250m². At the new 650m²+ location, however, 260m² of office space are available, including a 100m² training room for up to 25 people. In addition, there is ample storage space (225m²) and a further 170m² for the service workshop and the new test laboratory.
The installation of the testing facilities, in particular, demonstrates how critical the European pedelec market is for the Suzhou-based company, especially the German sector: Germany is by far the most significant and biggest e-bike market. Therefore, close proximity to existing and new customers – bicycle manufacturers – is just as important for Bafang as the opportunity to closely follow market developments and the emergence of new e-bike technologies, and to help shape them.
“We are looking forward to be working out of a modern building in an optimally developed industrial park. It is the ideal base for being an active participant in the ever-growing pedelec market. In addition, it is conveniently located, only 4 kilometers from the motorway,” a Bafang spokesperson says, adding that “close to the customer ” will be more than just a slogan for Bafang in the future.
