Yozo Shimano, Shimano Inc. President:
“We were welcomed to the European bicycle and fishing market 45 years ago. Since that time we have been striving to increase the social value of bicycles and fishing, and more recently rowing, and create those new cultures in Europe by offering our captivating products.
This new start in the center of intelligence here at the High Tech Campus will give Shimano a greater opportunity to thrive and contribute to the prosperity of the European bicycle, fishing and rowing world.”
Marc Van Rooij, Shimano Europe President:
“Since being in the North Brabant region one can’t fail to see the strong entrepreneurial spirit, real enthusiasm between companies and their people, and the collaborative affection and winners’ mentality that Eindhoven and the High Tech Campus offer Shimano.
“We intend to make use of these ingredients to make our company more successful in the near and long term, expanding the potential of what’s possible between the bike and the rider, an angler and their fishing tackle, or a rower and their boat. I am convinced that the surroundings at the High Tech Campus will offer us the opportunities to realize these challenges.
“In this new inspirational environment I am confident that we will be able to build on the mission of our company to continue our commitment to promote health and happiness through the enjoyment of nature and the world around us.”
