BIEL, Switzerland (Jan 27 )– Swiss DT has established a full subsidiary in Taichung, Taiwan, DT Swiss Asia Ltd., and has recently closed a co-operation agreement with Alex rims for the manufacture of wheelsets for Taiwan-made bicycles. (Alex supplies to Giant, Merida, hodaka, Fairlybike, etc.). The DT Swiss slogan as used on their present wheelsets (‘100% Swiss’) will be adapted to ‘Swiss Technology’ for the Asian-made DT wheels.
DT Swiss Asia has started production of spokes and nipples, and will add entry-level and medium-level hubs.
R&D plus the production of high-level DT Swiss products (some spokes, nipples, hubs, suspension units, some rims, 100% Swiss wheels) will remain in Switzerland. To underline this commitment, DT Swiss has just completed a new factory with a production surface of 5000 m2 in Biel, Switzerland.(OB)
