American Bicycle Group (ABG) today announced the relocation of its corporate offices from Ooltewah, TN to downtown Chattanooga. The move is expected to be complete in July and help to accommodate additional staff and telecommunications needs related to the company’s expanding international brand exposure. “It’s a natural progression for us,” said CEO Peter Hurley. “The success of the new Litespeed carbon line, the favorable industry reception to the Quintana Roo CD0.1 and wetsuit offering, along with the improving economic climate, meant that we needed to reassess the physical amount of office space that we will need as we add staff.”
The company also plans to move its titanium production to a nearby facility concurrent with the sale of their existing building to Lynskey Performance, also of Tennessee. CEO Hurley adds, “The old factory has served us well and it has certainly played a role in the tradition of fine bicycle manufacturing here in Southeast Tennessee. At the same time, this was a great opportunity to see the structure itself remain a bicycle frame producer and an important employment base for this area.”
“We’ve seen exceptional domestic and overseas growth for both the Litespeed and Quintana Roo brands this year, added new materials to our family of bikes, and strengthened our core commitment to highly engineered titanium production right here in the USA.”
Fulfillment of 2010 inventory to dealers will not be affected in any manner. Dealers or distributors with questions are encouraged to contact ABG via the Dealer Priority email address.
