All about bicycles, electric-assisted bikes, technology and safety in the press

In our daily work as we deal with bicycle safety, technology and user manuals we come across lots of safety risks. The most frequent ones are published in articles of the leading German special-interest magazines TOUR – Europas Rennrad-Magazin Nr. 1, BIKE – Das Mountainbike Magazin Europas Nr. 1 and E-Bike – Das Pedelec-Magazin to make this information important for the sector accessible to a wider public.

For many years now the Eurobike Show Daily accompanying the annual international Eurobike Show has given us the opportunity to publish our perspective on major developments in the cycle industry in full-page articles.

We also speak regularly in independent lectures about all topics relating to bicycle technology and bicycle market. In addition, we are regularly cited by further special-interest magazines or trade journals as well as more and more by radio and television and in their media reports, which shows us that we are completely right with our information. The section NEWS informs you about the latest news from our specialist fields. The reports and publications of this section are listed chronologically or according to topics of interest.

Zedler builds a new company building

More place for tests and training:

After constant growth in the past years, Zedler-Group has set the course for the future with a ground breaking ceremony. First parts of the new building are planned to be ready for occupancy in spring 2017 already.

Flanked by Ludwigsburg’s City Councillor for Building and Construction, Michael Ilk, the Deputy Chairman of Volksbank Ludwigsburg, Thomas Küster, the architect Harld Jahnke from Kelzenberg + Jahnke as well as the building contractor Matthias Schüle, the start of the construction was initiated together with managing director Dirk Zedler. "Without any doubt we’ve come to our borders in terms of space and logistics in our present company building. The construction of the new building is therefore a logical step for us which will enable us to provide a consistently high level of service to our customers in future as well," declared Dirk Zedler.

The new construction of the efficiency house planned exclusively from concrete, steel, wood and glass is projected as three-storey building. The working groups of the experts, the Technical Documentation department and the Testing Technology department will move to a 1300 sqm big, innovative new building in late spring 2017, which grows only 100 metres away from the current location. The new company building will not only provide much more space to the test laboratory which had experienced a disproportionate growth in the past. The training facilities will be enlarged significantly, as well. They are planned to open in autumn 2017. These facilities will be also attractive to external companies, because they host the extensive collection of historical bicycles collected by the Ludwigsburg bicycle enthusiast Helge Schultz together with company founder Dirk Zedler.
