Belgian Distributor Seeks to Connect E-Bikes in Europe
TURNHOUT, Belgium – A&C Solutions in August announced that it had signed an exclusive agreement to distribute products from China’s HIGO, which makes electric cabling for e-bikes.
Based in Belgium, A&C will provide European manufacturers and assemblers with a full range of high-voltage products that link batteries with power plants, controllers, displays and sensors.
“HIGO is the perfect match for the kind of connector solutions that many of our e-bike customers are looking for,” Franky Vanlerberghe, the A&C general manager, said in a release. “We immediately felt they could be a complementary partner to further build our E-bike business in Europe.”
Praised for their compact sizes, HIGO’s products are made at a factory in Changsu and A&C will maintain a large stock in its warehouse in Turnhout. In partnership with A&C, the companies intend to develop custom-made cable assemblies as part of the distribution agreement that promises to shorten lead times for Continental deliveries.
“Together we are ready to face the opportunities and the challenges to help E-bike manufacturers further grow this beautiful business in Europe,” Vanlerberghe said.
