Another industry that is currently shifting at the speed of lightning is that of e-bikes. For example, nearly 550,000 electric bicycles were sold in 2020, over 30% more than the year before*. Moreover, no less than half of all new two-wheelers are now electric, and e-bikes account for 75% of the industry’s turnover. In addition, you now need to wait for six months for your new bike due to the growing demand.
So there is still plenty of work for e-bike manufacturers. Of course, all these parts must be manufactured and coated, such as the casing, protective caps and gears. NFB has gained extensive experience in this area. Think of pre-treatment, the actual cataphoresis painting (KTL/e-coating), and powder coating.
