Embargoed until 11:00 CEST, 1st August 2023 – Canyon Bicycles, one of the world's leading bicycle manufacturers, is known for pioneering innovation and its distinctive, clean and modern design. These brand values are also reflected in the new headquarters of the global direct-to-consumer company – the Canyon.HQ, in Koblenz, Germany.
The new Canyon.HQ is a centre for innovation, creativity, inspiration and collaboration. From the first step into the building, the displayed bikes and jerseys in the foyer recall milestones from Canyon's history and highlight the performance mindset behind the bikes. It's immediately clear: this is a place where cycling is living and breathing through and through. We inspire to ride.
Canyon.HQ is the forge for our great innovations. In the development we meet the needs and wishes of our customers and consistently pursue the goal of inspiring fans worldwide with the best riding experience. The modern and inspiring environment allows us to optimally pursue our ambitious future plans and the global sustainable growth of Canyon. In addition, with the new Canyon.HQ we are fulfilling our claim to create attractive working conditions for our employees and to promote an open and inspiring culture at Canyon.Canyon CEO, Nicolas de Ros Wallace
Modern offices with 300 fully equipped workstations, inspiring open-space areas and meeting rooms offer plenty of space for creative collaboration and exchange. In the Innovation Lab, product developers and engineers work on the latest technical inventions. But the rest of the Canyon crew can also contribute ideas here. The Innovation Lab is designed to leverage the curiosity, cycling enthusiasm and knowledge of the entire Canyon crew as a driver of innovation.
Constructing the new building, Canyon relied on the latest energy and climate standards, thus fulfilling its claim to understand sustainability as a holistic and company-changing issue. The heating system features air/heat pumps, which draw heat from the ambient air with the support of a photovoltaic system and feed it into the building. Three generously dimensioned ventilation systems have a heat exchanger for heat recovery. Highest energy standards are also applied to other global Canyon locations: For example, all Canyon locations in Germany and the USA are supplied with 100 percent electricity from renewable sources.
At Canyon.HQ, the focus is also on the well-being of employees and on strengthening the Canyon spirit. In the large, modern staff bistro, regional organic products are used for cooking. The vegetarian and vegan meals at subsidized prices are restaurant quality. The bistro itself is designed as a place to meet: In a relaxed atmosphere, employees from different departments meet for a causal exchange during breakfast, lunch or a coffee. Conversations and nurturing of the Canyon spirit continue during the weekly after-work employee rides, where the latest models from the staff bike pool can be tested on the road and trails.
Around 1,400 employees currently work at the Corporate locations around Koblenz (Germany) and Amsterdam (Netherlands), as well as in Carlsbad (USA) and the 14 international partner companies in Europe and worldwide. The new Canyon.HQ is located in Koblenz next to the Canyon showroom, where visitors from all over the world can experience Canyon bikes and gear up close. More Canyon experience and customer service is also available in the Carlsbad showroom (California, USA) and at the Factory Service location in Belgium.
