Swiss, Premium, Performance Cycling: BMC is Swiss. But what does that mean?
BMC was founded 1994 in Switzerland surrounded by the watch-making industry of Grenchen in Canton Solothurn. The relationship to performance cycling began when BMC began supplying the Swiss professional road racing team Phonak Cycling, whose patron was Andy Rihs, owner of international hearing company of the same name. Rihs took over BMC in 2000 with the vision of building a carbon production facility to produce the ‘Porsche of race bikes’, and so he did. The factory changed how the company approaches bike manufacturing and over the years, it has evolved into the Impec Advanced R&D Lab. Precision engineering and an innovative approach to research and development are at the core of BMC and no other cycling manufacturer has so many tools at its disposal under one roof.
BMC is a Swiss, Premium, Performance Cycling manufacturer of road bikes, lifestyle bikes, mountain bikes and now electric bicycles. Established in 1994, the company employs approximately 120 people worldwide. It is headquartered in Grenchen, Switzerland where it also has its very own carbon production and R&D facility the Impec Advanced R&D Lab.
