Significant growth for e-bike firm means new staff

EBC Ltd expands sales force

Following last year’s growth totalling 70 per cent, electric specialist EBC Ltd has bolstered the sales force with the addition of both Larissa WIndsor and Nigel Watson.

EBC’s Rick Stanforth said of the recruits: "With the huge growth we have seen in our business over the last 2 years and the forecast growth in the e-bike market to come for 2015 / 2016 we are delighted to have Larissa on board. She will be supporting our existing customers for EBCO and Ave and also working with Nigel Watson to develop our growing network of premium Bergamont e-bike dealers".

Windsor said of her new role: "I’m a cycling enthusiast and enjoy the outdoors in my free time, and wherever there are wheels involved, I’m there! Rick and Paul from EBC Ltd have given me the opportunity to combine my passion for cycling and my sales administration background together, so its the best of both worlds. I will be on hand if any dealers wish to check on the status of their deliveries or expected delivery dates. I look forward to working with the team and speaking with the dealers in the near future."

Paul Stanforth recently suggested to BikeBiz that the business aims at a further 100 per cent growth in 2015.

Both Larissa and Nigel can be contacted through the EBC website.
