Vienna (OTS) Following the successful launch of the multi-purpose bicycle on the market, the Austrian startup GLEAM is now launching its own production in Vienna. In addition to the large assembly area, the 810m2 production unit in the 23rd District also offers ample space for an extensive warehouse, product development and any service activities. It is the basis for the implementation of the development and production goals of the new company. By 2025, the new site will create more than 30 new jobs and allow for the production capacity of 2,500 bicycles per year.
