Spanninga Celebrates 99th Anniversary in Retro Style


JOURE, the Netherlands – Yesterday on May 1, it was 99 years ago that the Spanninga company was founded. Three generations later it is still a family-owned company. This has proven to be a real advantage in the challenging market of bicycle lights.

Over the past 99 years Spanninga has built many strong relations in the cycling industry. “We realize that without these relations, it would have been impossible to have reached this respectable age and to  celebrate our anniversary. A big thank you is therefore in place,” says the Dutch component maker.

Spanninga prefers not only to look back on the past gone by but also to look ahead. “Especially now, feeling younger as ever, as we still bring the most actual and innovative technologies into the market for bicycle lights. Next year, a real milestone will be met and our 100 years jubilee will of course be celebrated in style. So for now we will keep the champagne bottled and save it for 2018 while we silently make a toast to all our partners.”

That toast comes also with the introduction of more and appropriate retro styled headlamps and rear lights. Next to the earlier introduced chrome lights these are now also available in copper/gold, rose/gold as well as other shiny colours.
