The search for a base of operations to serve hinterland residents working in Ghent-Zeehaven came to Danny and Ingeborg of eBikes Vergauwe's attention and they spoke to the people of RAIDA to work out a cooperation proposal.
At Danny and Ingeborg, STROMER is the house brand, just like at Raida, along with TREK for the sporty range and e-bikes up to 25km/h. Danny: "When Stromer entered the Belgian bike market in 2014, we jumped on that bandwagon, and eBikes Vergauwe was consequently among the first 5 Belgian Stromer dealers. I saw this as a personal challenge: finding my great love for motor technology now in an e-bike top model. To savour!"
Danny is a topper in terms of technical knowledge. Raida has brought in a top-class man with a lot of know-how in electric bikes and especially Stromer. Today, customers come from far and wide to Maldegem to buy their Stromer.
To give customers the full Raida experience, Raida Maldegem moved from their familiar spot in Sint-Laureins to a new larger shop in Maldegem in early 2023.
Danny: "This is a future-oriented cooperation that will guarantee we can continue to offer our customers the best service. This way, my technical knowledge accumulated over 35 years will not be lost and the larger shop will be an added value in our region."
Once again, this moves an established bike maker into partnership with RAIDA.
