Arkus & Romet joins folding bike leader DAHON as newest “hyper” distributor
Duarte, California, December 17, 2013 – World leader in folding bicycles DAHON has won Arkus & Romet for its rapidly expanding global distribution network. Furthering the folding bike brand’s exceptional international sales philosophy for green mobility, Arkus & Romet offers DAHON a superior presence in Eastern Europe and the strategic Polish market.
Producing 400,000 bicycles under their own brands annually, Arkus & Romet is the recognized leader of Poland’s bicycle industry, presiding over a sales and distribution network of 700 dealers throughout the country.

Today, the company is successfully involved in electric mobility. The Romet Company assumed the Arkus brand in 1999 and founded the Arkus & Romet Group in 2005.
With the new partnership becoming effective immediately, the prestigious DAHON folding bicycle line will already be available in selected shops within the Arkus & Romet network at the start of the 2014 bicycle season.
