Meet the Team
Bike Box Alan, from design to travel – our team help you on your way.
The essence of any successful team lies in the people who are part of that team, and at Bike Box Alan it’s a real family affair. Led by Alan himself, with his unparalleled experience and knowledge, from our small base here in Yorkshire, we’ve taken on the world of cycling travel and now protect bikes in all corners of the globe. In fact, if there were to be a cycling expedition to the Pole, then you’d likely find us involved and looking after the bikes on route!
As the global cycling community have increased their travelling adventures post-pandemic, making the most of life, we’ve flourished, and have a growing number of distributors. However, it’s at our Yorkshire base, on the edge of the Peak District National Park where our home lies, and where we build the strongest and most secure bike boxes in the cycling world.
Crossing the ‘T’s & dotting the ‘i’s
No business can function efficiently without a well-managed and well-structured administration team. Ours is led by Yorkshire born Jade, our office manager, who knows every aspect of our business, and all the necessary international logistics. What’s most amazing though, is that, even though Jade isn’t a cyclist herself, she has an unparalleled knowledge of bikes and how to fit them into whatever box is required by our wide-ranging customers! Jade, Wendy’s daughter, is joined in the office by Helen, who assists with general admin, Alan’s daughter Lizi, who works on admin and on the logos that we put onto our bike boxes, and finally, Wendy, who as well as helping with the business management and admin, also travels with Alan to the numerous expos, events and shows around the world – yes, Wendy is married to Alan!
We love the fact that our company is made up from friends and family. It means that our work is something that we can all enjoy and that we can actively and genuinely support each other, as we provide you, our customers with some of the world’s best bike boxes.
Creating the world’s strongest bike boxes
When it comes to the assembling and finishing of our boxes, the factory team here in Yorkshire is led by Matt R, Jade’s brother and Wendy’s son, who has a focus on everything, from the factory logistics, the construction and the quality control. The production staff of the world’s strongest bike boxes are Simon, Matt F, Jack, Greg, Leo and Erin, all of whom carry out other roles within the Bike Box Alan headquarters.
Having a team of people who are multi-skilled and always on hand to help their colleagues, that’s what makes a team tick, and it’s what makes our team at Bike Box Alan, one that we’re extremely proud of.
Next time that you’re loading your own Bike Box Alan, take a moment to think about the people who make the best bike boxes in the world, and who get them shipped seamlessly around the world, so you and your bike can travel in safety, wherever your next adventure takes you. They say that friends are family you choose – here at Bike Box Alan, our family and friends are one very special team.
