Designed and manufactured in Scotland
A peek behind the scenes at the big and small brands in the cycling industry is always exciting and interesting. With Endura it was no different as it’s such a friendly and exciting brand. After seeing some office space and shaking a few hands, we entered the logistics warehouse. Endura dispatches all their European orders from here and that’s an impressive operation. Right next to it, the team uniforms are manufactured – including the bc team jerseys and bibs. You got it right, Endura relies on local labour and produces these in-house. We passed by a van-sized machine that functions as a gigantic laser cutter and prepares all the cuts for the different apparel items, be it vest, jackets, shorts or accessories. Then there were printing machines for the team logos with the sponsors on it. They are later heat pressed on to the garments. Then we went on to the sewing department. This is where it all comes together. The assembly of a jersey or jacket is a quite sophisticated task and Endura pays great attention to detail.
