    The OCMW is a public center for social welfare that provides a number of social services and thus ensures the well-being of citizens in need. Many people in Belgium have insufficient means of subsistence or even no permanent place of residence. All these people can receive social assistance from the OCMW, because everyone who legally resides in Belgium is entitled to it. Each municipality or city has its own OCMW that offers a wide range of services.

    Could it also be done with Trenergy, Madame Vélo asked

    A few months ago, a tender was issued via the OCMW in Bruges for the purchase of 16 e-bikes. The bicycle shop Madame Vélo of Syl de Baets had participated in that tender and had originally used bicycles from QWIC. That was just before they went bankrupt. When the QWIC models were no longer available, De Baets had to look for another suitable bicycle brand. During that period she met Pascal Chow, dealer manager of Trenergy in Belgium, at a fair where test bicycles were on display. “We then started talking and she asked if I wanted to come over,” says Chow. “She had a number of QWIC bicycles included in a lease application, but that was no longer possible due to the bankruptcy at that time. The question was: Would it also be possible with you?”

    That question was easy for Chow to answer and an appointment was quickly made. They then went through the Trenergy collection together to make a good selection. “The choice ultimately fell on the Trenergy Performance Belt 2.3 SE, our second most expensive bicycle. This is a real all-rounder and very fully equipped with a powerful Bafang mid-motor and an intube battery, belt drive and automatic lighting,” continues Chow. Once the choice was made, Madame Vélo first became a Trenergy dealer and they successfully participated in the tender. We were their lifesaver, they said.”

    Travel target group employees by bicycle as much as possible

    Like many other companies, sustainability is also a spearhead at OCMW Bruges and welfare associations. They encourage employees to travel as sustainably as possible. Through a subsidy call from Flanders, a total of sixteen new bicycles were purchased through the Buurtsport and De Blauwe Lelie sub-projects. Two Birdy folding bikes from Riese & Müller plus the Performance Belt 2.3 SE from Trenergy. These bicycles are mainly used for assignments within the local service economy (LDE).

    “The mission of Buurtsport Brugge is to encourage all Bruges residents to exercise more, including those who belong to vulnerable target groups. Exercise promotes mental and physical health,” says Pablo Annys, alderman for social affairs. “That is precisely why we also encourage our target group of employees to make as many small (work) trips by bicycle as possible. These people often come from poverty and do not have the means to purchase a decent bicycle. Service bicycles partly solve this problem. With the support of Flanders, we were able to invest in sixteen electric bicycles, two of which were folding bicycles.”

    “The purchase of new company bicycles shows that as an employer we promote a cycling culture”

    The bicycles were supplied by the bicycle shop Madam Vélo from Bruges, which proudly supports the project within SPOOR and De Blauwe Lelie. “The employees of OCMW Brugge regularly use their personal vehicle for business travel. These trips are necessary, especially for the people of Buurtsport, who constantly work at external locations. But car traffic causes high mileage reimbursements and extra CO2 emissions,” says Christian FILLET, deputy general manager of the City of Bruges. “With the electric bicycle, we tackle these two bottlenecks efficiently. The purchase of new company bicycles shows that as an employer we promote a cycling culture and leave the car on the sidelines more often. In summary: better for our people, our organization and our planet.”

    Dutch Electric bike brand Trenergy is coming into the new year with a renewed focus on communication for the benefit of its customers and business.

    As reported in industry publication, nieuwsfiets.nu, the makers of electric bicycles continue to value communication as a core principle, and have committed to more deeply optimize this area on numerous points. This is especially vital in cooperation with dealers.

    AZ Import, creator of Trenergy, has always aimed to provide the best products and service, but knows that there can still be room for improvement. Commercial Assistant Maik Coobs was quoted: “By means of a survey, we asked our dealer network where we could improve ourselves. The points that emerged were improving the quality of our e-bikes and optimizing our communication flows. And we really do have news to communicate. For example, the further development of our bicycles, with the aim of improving the quality and reliability of our e-bikes. A number of employees have traveled to our factory in Portugal to contribute to optimizing the quality of our ebikes,” he explained, “but it’s also about the website. Our portal is not really optimal at the moment, which is why next year we will also focus on updating our website, which will make it easier for dealers to find their way and which will work much more efficiently and faster. Both for the dealers and ourselves.”

    Users can expect more visual content and an optimised experience both for dealers and consumers, along with faster performance speed and the most up-to-date information. The one-stop-shop will aim to let dealers take care of stock availability, documentation downloads and even warranty settlement.

    Digital communications and print brochures are to be reinvigorated, with professional and diverse photography set to show off the bikes at their very best over the coming year. Trenergy is also ensuring the approach is holistic, followed through both online and offline, with high-quality, locally sourced printing, strategic QR codes for a smooth user experience.

    Following excellent development, LEVA-EU member and e-bike brand Trenergy relocated into an upgraded facility, and now offers dealers the chance to explore the new location

    For Trenergy, this year’s dealer cycle was not only dominated by the innovations in its collection, but also by the presentation of the new building. Dealers were offered a tour of the offices, the spacious warehouse, and finally the showroom, where the bicycles were presented. Trenergy director Taco Reydon also shared that additional development of the showroom is planned for the future, further amplifying Trenergy’s offering to prospective clients.

    Reydon and sales manager René Driessen notice that the dealers are becoming more careful when ordering new bicycles, and have observed shifts in market behavior, “The past year has been crazy. Some customers ordered two to three more than usual because they wanted to be assured of bicycles. But someone who normally does 100 bicycles will not suddenly sell 300,” explains Driessen. “And when we wanted to deliver the ordered bicycles, it sometimes didn’t work out. In good consultation, we then started canceling bicycles, which we were able to sell to other dealers. That is why we now prefer that entrepreneurs order slightly less, but then purchase it.

    But besides telling the dealers to think carefully about their order, they naturally do that themselves too,” adds Reydon. “They notice that many other suppliers are also starting to deliver. Moreover, the prospects are uncertain due to, for example, the high energy bills. We hope, of course, that people will leave the car at home more often and take the bike more often, but dealers are not all ready to anticipate this yet. But if you ensure that you have a nice range and an organization with which dealers can work well together, then you will be fine.”

    Outside of hometown developments, Trenergy expanded into the Belgian markets during 2021 and will continue its development through this year.
