Bike factories survive earthquake in Taiwan


The earthquake in Taiwan could have seriously rocked the worldwide
cycle industry but, as far as can be made out… it hasn’t.
An earthquake that measured 7.6 on the Richter scale and which might claim 5000 (latest
estimate) lives, has wreaked havoc on the infrastructure of Taiwan, especially Taichung
County which is home to most of the companies producing bicycle parts in Taiwan.

Peter Holton of ATB Sales, importers of Marin, says the situtation isn’t as gloomy
as first feared. “I called our suppliers in Taiwan. They say the bike factories
have not been affected and it will be business as usual. The main effect so far is
loss of power across the island, but that is not expected to last more than a day
or two.”
