Where would we be without our BIKE tests. Every month we test the newest bikes for their load bearing capacity and performance. A well equipped test laboratory is essential for an objective, differentiated assessment. That is exactly the point where Zedler Group has supported us since 1994. This year Zedler Group is celebrating their 25th anniversary and inaugurated their new company building at the same time. The special thing: The new building has not only a fancy look, it is environmentally friendly in addition.
The modern building was built from only a few selected materials and covers most of their energy needs on their own. Sunlight and waste heat keep their own ecological fingerprint as inferior as possible. Bikers would destroy the woods. As if! Apart from lots of offices and meeting rooms, the house itself also includes a museum with original milestones of bicycle history, a chamber of horrors with all kinds of burst bike parts, appropriately enough named “Walk of Fail” as well as, of course, the bicycle test stands.
The anniversary celebration and the opening of the new building were attended by more than 140 guests – among them Baden-Wuerttemberg’s Minister of Transport Winfried Hermann. Hermann praised the bike sector, as it was built up and designed with heart and soul by decision makers and enthusiasts.
