The possibility of becoming supporting member of the branch association VSF has been introduced beginning 2013. Meanwhile, the association has welcomed all in all seven supporting members. The latest new members are
Zedler – Institut für Fahrradtechnik und -Sicherheit as well as SKS Germany. "It was a pleasure for SKS to become a supporting member of VSF", says Marcel Spork, sales manager of SKS. "In our opinion it is an absolutely good thing that the VSF participates actively on the political and pre-political stage by promoting cyclists’ interests. In doing so they not only represent the interests of the VSF members, but makes the entire sector heard. We are convinced that these activities will become more and more important in future."
A VISIT TO DIRK ZEDLER
Another objective for the VSF is to be of assistance for the networking of the different industry participants and to cultivate creative thinking.
With this in mind the VSF recently organized a visit to the Zedler institute exclusively for VSF members and supporting members. "This visit was not only for the bicycle manufacturers very interesting, for the component manufacturers the insights into the test institute were very instructive, as well", says Uwe Woell, product manager of VSF. "These took the opportunity available to think outside the box and to get new inspiration for their own work."
Along with numerous expert presentations the participants got an overall insight into the work of the Zedler institute.
