Carbon Specialist Opens New Taiwan Facility

CHANGHUA, Taiwan – The company calls itself specialist in carbon frames. What the company displays in its brand new facility in Changhua, Taiwan underlines this statement with beautiful curved and finished frames.

However, it is not making these frames as Axam Enterprise Co. Ltd. focuses on providing know how and mould making expertise to customers all over the world like Corratec from Germany, BH from Spain, Halfords from the UK (for which Axman produces the hi-end Boardman and Carrera bikes) as well as QPB and Salsa in the US. With the Axman made moulds the carbon frames are for a big part made at CarbonTec in China.

Painting installation

After receiving the carbon frames from China the bikes are assembled at Axman’s brand new factory that started operations last September. The 8,000 m² and US$ 3 million costing facility includes a modern painting installation also capable of powder coatings.

Axman, headed by Jackson Jiang (see second photo), produced 100,000 models with alloy frames and 15,000 with carbon frames in 2008. 2009 targets include more carbon bikes (to 20,000 units) as well as 120,000 alloy ones.
