Following the reopening of bicycle shops in Germany, MAGURA Bosch Parts & Services GmbH & Co. KG (MBPS) is introducing two new measures to support its dealers Europe-wide.
MBPS is now waiving shipping costs for B2B shop orders regardless of the order value, starting now until 31 May 2020 (including for the UK cycle trade). The aim of the measure is to speed up processing – particularly for smaller specialist dealers – and get components to dealers faster. The firm is encouraging dealers not to hesitate to order even small quantities quickly.
“During this crisis, the population is heavily dependent on the bicycle, because it enables them to avoid public transport with its potential risks of contact,” said Timo Kieninger, Head of Sales and Marketing. “We want to make an important contribution to reducing service processing times with these measures.”
In the course of the reopening of the specialist dealers’ shops, last week saw MBPS provide them with information on important protection products such as coughing and sneezing barriers for the checkout area.
MBPS has also secured a cooperation agreement with a specialist manufacturer of hygiene protection articles for MBPS retail dealers, enabling them to order the necessary equipment at a discount. The range of equipment – available at short notice – is intended to help retail partners equip their sales area as quickly as possible. The discounts are valid until 31 May 2020.
MAGURA is also support medical work by using its 3D printing processes to produce protective visors that can be used to supplement breathing masks. The first distribution campaign to care services in the Swabian Alb region has already underway.
