We’re pleased to have recently had the opportunity to complete another rotomoulding contract for a leading UK company – this time for Bikebox, the UK’s leading retailer of bicycle carriers. After looking at a number of other plastic manufacturing companies, the team at Bikebox ultimately chose Excelsior to manufacture their brand new product, the Bikebox VeloVault2.

Developed by Bikebox, the VeloVault2 has been specially designed to carry and protect road and mountain bikes. It’s the latest generation of their product range, and is designed to fit road and mountain bikes with all manner of wheel types, including ‘29ers’ and those with disc brakes, or any other essential travel accessories.

Hannah Mann, Director at Bikebox commented “For Bikebox Online, this was our first step into rotational moulding, and the team at Excelsior provided advice and support right from the mould designing stage. Before choosing Excelsior, we researched and spoke to other companies, but Excelsior stood out above the crowd as the people we really wanted to work with.

‘As soon as we met Giles and Russell, we knew that we had made the right choice for us and for the product, and that Excelsior would make a real success of it. The whole process was very easy – Excelsior deliver our boxes on time and often ahead of schedule. Any initial challenges to get the box right were ironed out very quickly by Russell, and the communication from everyone at Excelsior is always excellent. That’s  extremely important to us, as we have to give our customers quick answers. Friendly, knowledgeable and diligent, Excelsior have certainly met and exceeded our expectations and our product is all the better for it.”

Giles Fielding, MD at Excelsior commented “We were extremely pleased to win the Bikebox business. The product is particularly well designed – in what’s now a competitive and growing market, the Velovault 2 really stands out in our opinion. Sales are going very well for Bikebox, and they have smashed their initial targets so we have been delighted with its performance. Bikebox are adding new colours all the time, and our ability to stock 12 colours for plastic products makes that further scalability easy for them to achieve. Hannah and the team are great to work with, so if you are in the market for a bike box be sure to visit www.bikebox-online.co.uk.”
