Nox Cycles with new shareholder

Battery manufacturer BMZ aquires Nox Cycles and Hawk Bikes

The BMZ Group, a global specialist in lithium-ion batteries, acquired Nox Cycles Austria and all its sister companies in Germany and Switzerland, as well as the mainly in Germany represented HAWK Bike Sales GmbH, in the form of a strategic investment. 

Both companies look back on a longstanding excellent business relationship. BMZ is both battery and motor supplier for the high-performance NOX e-mountain bikes as well as NOX distribution partner in stationary as well as online retail.

BMZ sees itself as a long-term partner to its OEM and Tier1 customers in the areas of development, supply and service - from customized battery solutions to the coordinated drive system for e-bikes. With the incorporation of NOX and HAWK, BMZ accesses many years of product development, manufacturing and market expertise in the e-bike segments city, trecking and MTB.

CEO & Founder of BMZ Group Sven Bauer comments: "Through the strategic forward integration we intensify our know-how to further increase the enthusiasm for our BMZ products with innovative, customized solutions."

The BMZ Group has acquired from Gaby and Carsten Sommer all shares in their holding company SoCo Ltd. with its registered office in Malta. SoCo Ltd. in turn holds 100% of the shares in Nox Cycles GmbH, Nox Cycles Austria GmbH and Hawk Bike Sales GmbH as well as 50% of Nox Cycles Switzerland GmbH.

Both companies attach importance to maintaining the economic independence of the bicycle group, which was previously solely owned by the Sommer family of entrepreneurs. In accordance with this requirement, the management, existing customers, core suppliers and employees remain unchanged.

Dipl.-Ing. Carsten Sommer comments: "The establishment of our own e-bike production in Tyrol since 2017 and the clear focus on ‘Made in Austria’ were courageous, but ultimately the demand has always proven us right. With BMZ, we have now also been able to gain a long-term business partner as a permanent shareholder, whose long-term vision will enable us to scale production and sales even further."

The acquisition marks a milestone for both companies and promises an exciting future in the e-bike industry. Customers of Nox Cycles and Hawk Bikes can continue to expect innovative and high-quality products.
