Gazelle Innovation & Production Centre
For over 100 years our Gazelle factory in Dieren, the Netherlands has been producing bicycles to the highest standards of quality. Over the years, the original factory has been expanded and remodeled to create space for Gazelle’s on-going growth and development. In 2014, we decided the continuous growth of the Gazelle brand meant that the time had come for a total renovation and build-out of our original factory in Dieren. We were proud to have the doors of our new facility opened by His Majesty King Willem-Alexander on Sept. 3, 2015.
Our original factory building now houses the Innovation & Production Center, and a new 7000m2 assembly shop was built between the existing factory buildings and the historic main building. This new assembly building houses the bicycle assembly lines and the automated paint shop where our bicycles are painted.
Curious to see how Gazelle bikes are made? Take a tour of our factory below.
Check out the most impressive paint line in the world. Each Gazelle bicycle is given 4 individual coats of paint, and each application is quality checked to ensure even and smooth coverage. Our attention to detail is unparalleled; the decal of every Gazelle bike is applied by hand in the final stage.
Preparation from front fork to head badge.
We make 250,000 bikes every year at Gazelle. We make over half a million wheels to go with those bikes. See how we do it.
A new Gazelle bicycle rolls off of our state of the art assembly line every 90 seconds. Each bicycle is assembled and checked by a team of 25 trained technicians.
Quality is paramount. Each bike is put through over 129 different tests in our test lab, guaranteeing the highest levels of quality.
