Where it all began
While travelling in Africa, Huib van de Grijspaarde realised that in many African countries, motorcycles are used as taxis and for transportation of people and goods. As a development economist and motorcycle enthusiast, the macro and micro economic impact of this pan- African phenomenon motivated him. Huib came up with the idea to improve the African motorcycle transportation industry and started working on commercially viable and customer friendly mobility solutions.
In 2012 Huib met Peter Veldhoven, at that moment owner of a design agency. Huib explained his vision of generating social change and improving mobility in Kenya, and Peter’s design philosophy helped to translate this vision into commercial solutions.
Manufacturing & design
We design tools in collaboration with those who will use them. In essence, we use the feedback of our future customers during our design process, translating their needs into tailor-made solutions. Our customers are the core of our strategy, involving them in the development of new products and services is the best way to succeed in our mission.
Where to find us
Since April 2017 we have grown from one retail centre in Nairobi to a country-wide network with five retail centers and 18 service centers, where we always focus on the needs of the individual customer.
