Visit to Orbea

Visit to Orbea

On Friday 10th June, the B+I team paid a visit to the head offices of Orbea in Mallabia (Bizkaia). Founded in 1840 in Eibar (Gipuzkoa), Orbea is a co-op dedicated to the manufacture of bicycles.

Leading the way was Jon Fernández, Director General de Orbea, who explained to us in detail the whole process of design, creation and assembly of a bicycle, as well as the company’s plans for future development. Spanning almost two centuries, Orbea is a wonderful example of business sustainability with a very exciting present and future.

This is the latest in a series of annual excursions to visit Basque companies that we at B+I undertake every summer with the dual purpose of both enjoyment and education. We wish to thank the Orbea team not only for making this possible, but also for their warm reception.
