Accell Group is an international group of companies active in the design, development, production, marketing and sales of bicycles, bicycle parts and accessories and fitness equipment.
Accell Group's supply chain is complex and currently locally managed. In recent years Accell has grown rapidly both organically and by acquisitions. Accell's business is segmented in Bicycles and Part & Accessories, each with its own dynamics. Bicycles are assembled by Accell and 3rd party suppliers. The frames and components are externally sourced, mostly in Asia, resulting in long lead times and high working capital. Assembly operations are closely located to the end markets to shorten lead times with local component inventories on site.
The group strategy focus is on high end - and premium bicycle market. Accell differentiates itself from the competition through innovations. Coordination and working together with suppliers in the development process and supply chain is critical. Demand management is key as consumer behaviour is becoming less predictable and demand is highly volatile.
Accell Group now ahs a centre-led supply chain organisation model. The aim is to significantly improve profitability and working capital reduction.
