In the early 1990s, after an apprenticeship as a craftsman, a degree in mechanical engineering, experience in the bicycle trade and many cycling and triathlon events under his belt, Dirk Zedler, founder and managing director of the Zedler-Group companies, set up his own business as a bicycle expert. At the CCI, the business idea was commented on with the sentence: “Who needs that?“
Today, 30 years later, Dirk Zedler is content: “The Zedler‐Group has not only made a name for itself with courts and insurers, but also developed into a hidden champion of the global cycle industry with other highly specialised business fields.“
Open House Day
On April 1st, 2023, the company celebrates its company anniversary with an Open House Day. Then, the company building will be open to all interested parties inside and outside the industry. In the museum, the development of the bicycle can be experienced at first hand and a unique collection worth seeing from the last 200 years can be viewed. In house tours, the experts, test engineers and technical documentation experts will accompany the registered visitors for one hour through the rooms, which are typically not open to the public for reasons of confidentiality towards the company's business partners. Registrations via the company website.
