Shop4bikers a Chesterfield Derbyshire based Company and the Italian connection.(October 21, 2011)
A business story to beat the UK and global downturn! The whole World is under going a huge change and it is effecting everybody. To ensure that your business survives you must move with the times by working together with International counterparts!
In August 2004 Philip Churm and I, Caroline Moore, successfully launched Securit (GB) Ltd, manufacturing motorcycle garages, mobility scooter stores and retailing a small range of motorcycle accessories from a unit on Foxwood Road Sheepbridge, Chesterfield, Derbyshire.
The company has gone from strength to strength over the last 7 years, with a highlight being receiving a Barclays Bank award as a national finalist in the Trading Places competition.
With the accessories side of the business rapidly increasing, we noticed that our customers were constantly complaining that the accessory market in the UK had become stagnant and boring with most retailers only selling the same items. We therefore decided to do something about it and embarked on an exciting new project, Shop4bikers (www.shop4bikers.co.uk).
We visited the Milan Motorcycle show in 2009 to try and find new products different enough to what was available in the UK. We came across an Italian company called LAMPA (www.lampa.it) .Their ideas were the same as ours, to offer quality, affordable but innovative products and were looking to forge a long time relationship with a UK company.
After selling their products online and at motorcycle shows in the UK and Holland over a period of 18 month , we returned to Italy for a successful meeting at their head office and distribution centre after which where we were awarded the UK distribution for Lampa motorcycle products as well as an agent for all their other products including car, lorry and bicycle accessories.
In order to raise the profile of the Lampa brand, we hope to exhibit at the largest UK motorcycle trade show at the NEC Birmingham in January (www.motorcycle-expo.co.uk) .The export staff from Lampa will be joining us on the stand
We continue to visit the Milan show every year to cement our relationship with Lampa S.pA and also to find other companies offering the quality and innovation we are looking for.
Although we are no longer a manufacturer, we have not forgotten about the need for motorcycle garages or secure stores for mobility scooters and now offer a new range of stores from a partner company. To view this range, go to www.securitgb.co.uk.
