Tripled production numbers
With the multi-million investment the e-bike production at the Hildburghausen facility is to increase to an annual output of up to 90,000 units by 2022. “Currently we produce about 2,000 e-bikes per month in Hildburghausen. This year's annual capacity will be around 18,000 units. By 2020, we want to increase this to 30,000 units,” confirms Renner pointing to the company’s response to growing demand exclusively for Merida and Centurion branded e-bikes fitted with Bosch mid-motors. Only these are assembled at the German production facility and these are primarily for the German-speaking markets but also for other neighboring European countries.
