FULL DESCRIPTION

A Dutch company has developed a range of large bags like XL bike trolleys, which are being sold under their own brand in The Netherlands and the rest of the world. In The Netherlands the company has a dealer network of bicycle specialists and for the rest of the world the products can be bought directly at the companies’ website. At the moment the production of the trolleys takes place overseas.
However, an important mission statement of the company is to create as little as possible carbon dioxide(emission) to help preserve our planet for future generations. This was a main reason why the company decided to re-shore the production back to Europe and not carry tons of material around the globe, but find a local partner with local materials.
Additionally to this, the company is seriously looking for a manufacturer within Europe to have more grip on the production process and the opportunity to adjust production quantities in order to quickly respond to the market, like colour changes and so on. The company needs a production partner, who can produce the waterproof trolleys for bike and e-bikes and has the equipment and know-how for sealing textiles.
Besides reducing transport cost and emissions, the company is also exploring ways to use circular materials for the bags. Partners should be open to explore innovations in this area together with the company.
Therefore the company is looking for a flexible manufacturing partner. The company envisages in a long term manufacturing agreement and is willing to support the partner with all necessary information during the first samples and batches.
