BBB Opens Logistic Center in Taichung

TAICHUNG, Taiwan – Last Sunday BBB owners Chris Koppert (left on photo) and Frank Moons together with their Taiwanese partner Carrie Tsai from EC Sports, opened a new logistic centre in Taichung, Taiwan. Next to the opening of the new warehouse BBB also celebrated its 20th anniversary together with their about 80 Taiwanese suppliers.

Almost all (85%) BBB parts and accessories are made by Taiwanese partners. The produced parts are collected at the new 2,000m² logistics centre located in Taichung. It forms BBB’s hub for shipments to the 39 distributors the company currently has all over the world. Here also the collected parts and accessories are ‘consolidated’ for shipments by full container.

Six people are currently working at BBB’s new logistics centre. Next to handling all orders and shipments they also check all products on quality.

At the opening party Chris Koppert and Frank Moons looked back on the 20 years of BBB which started in 1991 with 0 customers. At this moment the P&A retailing specialist operating its BBB shop-in-shop OTC system, serves 15,448 dealers in 39 countries. About 120 sales reps from the 39 BBB distributors call regularly on the almost 16,000 dealers.

In 1991 BBB (which stands for Bike Parts for Bikers by Bikers stemming from the road racing background from both Koppert and Moons) started as a 2-man company. Currently the workforce stands at 40 including 2 product managers and 4 product designers. Product development, marketing  and brand-building through Pro Tour sponsoring forms the heart and soul of the company for which it spends yearly over 3 million US dollar.
