Shimano Europe is pleased to announce the move of Shimano Belgium and Lazer Sport to a brand new office in Mechelen, Belgium as per 1 July 2021. Better facilities are needed to meet the future growth ambitions of both companies. Shimano Belgium and Lazer Sport will remain two entities, but will share facilities for more efficiency and synergy.
Marc van Rooij, President of Shimano Europe, commented: “We are preparing for future growth. Our current facilities in Mechelen for Shimano Belgium and Antwerp for Lazer are not convenient anymore. We intend to prepare for further future growth and meet customers’ expectations even better. The new office will give us more opportunities for dealer trainings, customer meetings, presentations and enhanced test facilities for our helmet business. Furthermore it features a smooth reachability for retailers, customers and distributors being only 20 minutes from Brussels' Zaventem Airport and close to motorway E-19. We are confident that with this move we will be able to serve our customers even better.”
