R.J. Chicken & Sons is now formally known as Chicken CycleKit, with a new logo. The registered office of Chicken CycleKit remains unchanged. Robert Chicken has retired.
CEO Cedric Chicken said: "Following Robert’s retirement his shares have passed to the company, effectively owned and controlled by myself. The management team remains unchanged. The warehouse has been further extended in order to assist the smooth flow of goods."
The move comes as the company approaches its 95th year in business.
Robert Chicken thanked staff for their efforts during his many decades in the business. He said: “I would like to say how much I enjoyed working with Mike Catlin, Lee Halling and the team; one of the highlights being their efforts and achievements post fire, that was a remarkable few weeks. I am so delighted the company has really thrived since and I really hope it continues to do so.
"After virtually 40 years with the company and now in poorish health, I have now retired and any direct dealings I had with any company matters have terminated.”
The company, which recently expanded its Leighton Buzzard headquarters, has most recently acquired the distribution rights to Vermarc clothing and is working towards an agreement with Briko, the new owners of LAS helmets. Velomann computers, now part of Bianchi, remains in the Chicken Cyclekit portfolio.
