TAIPEI, TAIWAN - “It’s a bit of an understatement to say that we have had a pretty busy year,” stated Joshua Hon, Tern vice president at the celebration of the first anniversary of Tern yesterday.
“Since June of last year, we have launched a completely new brand, developed twenty-two new bike models and a matching line of bike accessories, set up and stocked Service Centers in the US, Germany, and Taiwan, established distribution companies in the US, UK, Taiwan, and China, and built a global network of over 44 distributors”, said Joshua Hon.
Today, the company has 44 distributors worldwide in 44 countries throughout Asia, Europe, North America, and South America. Tern expects total shipments to reach 100,000 units by the end of 2012.
Though just barely over a year old, Tern has already received a number of design awards for its bicycles, including a 2011 Eurobike Award for the Eclipse S11i, a 2012 Taipei Cycle Design & Innovation Award for the Verge X10, and a 2012 Red Dot Award for the Verge Duo. At Eurobike Tern will be showcasing its 2013 product line up as well as a number of new products and accessories.
