All about bicycles, pedelecs, 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.

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-Group wins Grand Prix of Small and Medium Business

Award for a longstanding partner of TOUR magazine: The “Grand Prix of Small and Medium Business” was presented to the Zedler-Group

The award was presented to Zedler-Group for an innovative business model and the operations management of strongly increasing the owner’s capital share during an enormous growth while binding the employees for many years at the same time. “This award is a great gift for our 25th company anniversary and confirms once again our performance. At the same time it is a motivation to present us with innovative ideas and entrepreneurial spirit in the industry and to continuously enhance our business fields,” declared Dirk Zedler.

Under the motto “Shaping the Future” the Awards Gala of the Oskar-Patzelt-Foundation took place on the occasion of the 24th competition for the German federal states Baden-Wuerttemberg, Hesse, Bavaria and Thuringia. In the evening hours, the executive board members of the foundation, Dr. Helfried Schmidt and Petra Troeger, presented the prestigious statue to 14 companies which had prevailed over more than 2,400 competitors. All in all 4,917 small and medium-sized companies as well as banks and local communities had been nominated for the competition nationwide.

“Zedler-Institut is possibly the smallest major corporation in the world and has shown a double-digit growth for many years in succession”, Gunther Jahnke of Jahnke & Hofmann Partnerschaft Steuerberatungsgesellschaft justifies the nomination. And further: “It is not only the economic success that characterises the Zedler-Group, it is also their commitment to social and sustainable issues - on a local level as well as worldwide. In addition to an educational partnership with three schools in the vicinity, the group has also been donating bicycles for Africa for years.”

Dirk Zedler has been working for the German special-interest magazines TOUR and BIKE as permanent freelancer in the technology department for many years. Together with Robert Kühnen he developed the first test stands for bicycle tests at TOUR in 1995. To date all TOUR test stands originate from the cooperation with Dirk Zedler, founder and managing director of Zedler Group.
