Trek Bicycle Corporation’s HQ in Waterloo, Wisconsin is an considerable place to visit. The 205,000 sq ft trickery houses 800
employees, and one of a usually large-scale bicycle manufacturing
factories left in a US.

The worker register breaks
down roughly 50/50 when comparing white to blue collar workers, illustrating that Trek’s domestic prolongation is some-more than a token effort. The 400-or-so-strong white collar
workforce creates adult a immeasurable infancy of Trek’s engineering, product management,
graphic, selling and business support staff. However, Trek also
maintain a three-person cessation growth lab in Southern California, run
by Jose Gonzales.

At a heart of their Wisconsin
headquarters is Trek’s CO manufacturing. All of their Madone 6 Series highway bikes – 16 models, if we include
framesets –are done in Waterloo, along with other top-tier models including Speed Concept 9 Series time hearing bikes, and Top Fuel, Fuel EX 9.9, Remedy 9.9 and Superfly 100
full-suspension rigs, are done in Waterloo. Trek’s US prolongation amounts to roughly 25,000 bikes annually.

Unfortunately when BikeRadar
called on Trek, a prolongation line was filled with 2013 bikes so our debate guide, mountain bike code manager Travis Ott, wasn’t authorised to uncover us a factory. Waterloo also serves as a base
for Trek’s Project One program, that allows users to collect tradition striking and
paint packages, as good as a sizing and selection of their new bike.
