To meet the high demand for special needs bikes, Dutch special and therapeutic bike producer Van Raam has bought a factory in Poland. The contract was signed already in mid-December. No information was provided on the purchase price. The factory is located in the southwest of the country, in Wykroty, 25 kilometers west of Bolesławiec and across the German border near Görlitz. The 6,500 square meter factory, previously called Lovink Polska and now renamed Van Raam International, stands on five hectares of land. It has been in the hands of Dutch machinery supplier Royal Lovink Industries based in Terborg. Van Raam will also take over part of the staff.
Van Raam has been searching for expansion opportunities for some time. Due to the great demand for special needs bicycles, the 13.500 square meter headquarters and factory in Vaarseveld, where Van Raam has been located since 2019, has already become too small.
