Trike Manufacturing Leaders Experience Growth and Expand into the Global Market
Champion Trikes and Lehman Trikes continue to make great strides in the trike industry in just a few short months after Champion Investments Inc. purchased Lehman.
Lehman Trikes, which began running at full operations in October, has been slammed with orders nationwide for Harley-Davidson, Honda, Kawasaki, Suzuki, and Victory trike conversions. “We have been increasing staff since the purchase of the company in June and continue to increase our dealer network with trucks continually delivering trikes and picking up motorcycles for conversion,” stated Terree Matson-McCoy, Vice President of Lehman Trikes. “We are really excited about the progress of the company in such a short amount of time. Our trikes are known for their quality and styling and Lehman is dedicated to continuing this legacy.” Lehman Trikes is currently developing new product.
Champion Trikes continues to experience tremendous growth as well and has been recently researching innovative accessories for trikes. “We were the first to develop accessories such as the Original EZ Steer to enhance the ease and comfort of riding a Trike, Reverse Gear, and Disc Brakes for trikes and are currently in the beginning stages of development for an exciting new product to enhance the comfort for many trikers”, stated Jim Pinto, Vice President of Champion Trikes. Champion Trikes offers trike kits for Harley-Davidson, Honda, Kawasaki, and Yamaha as well as 74 different types of products.
Both Champion and Lehman are also making a breakthrough in the global market. Recently, strategic alliances were developed in key countries to give Champion a foot-hold in the lucrative International Trike market. “Both companies are already in the global market, but we have a fantastic opportunity to introduce our American-made trikes into a market that is also growing in the three-wheel segment.” Champion has developed refinements and enhancements for the International Trike marketplace for 2013.
The vastness of products available from both companies and the reputation each has as industry leaders has supported the sales growth. Stated Mr. Arrojo, “When Champion Investments purchased Lehman Trikes, we realized we were purchasing a strong leader. We are now sharing a combined 50 years of experience in this industry.” While the companies will remain separate, they are working closely together to build upon current products and develop exciting new products that will enhance the trike riding experience.
