MTF Enterprises Limited, a pioneering supplier of electric bikes in the UK, is pleased to announce its acquisition of the assets of EMU Electric Bike Company Limited, effective from 25th September 2023.
The deal, which doubles the company’s trade offering for electric bikes, involves the transfer of assets, trademark, website, stock and distribution channels from EMU Electric Bike Company Limited to MTF Enterprises Limited for an undisclosed sum. MTF Enterprises Limited, the parent company behind Evolving Sports Distribution (its specialist trade supply division) and E-bikes Direct (its online retail arm) will also assume responsibility for after-sales support for EMU bikes, both on the road and with dealers.
As a result of this acquisition, Evolving Sports Distribution will offer exclusive trade deals on the EMU product range to streamline its current inventory levels and gear up for the highly anticipated introduction of new EMU models launching in the summer of 2024,. These additions will complement the company’s broader outdoor leisure offering, including Dallingridge electric bikes, Ezyroller go karts and AM cargo bikes.
This strategic acquisition underscores MTF Enterprises’ commitment to expanding its footprint in the electric bike market and strengthening its position as a pioneering champion of good value products in the cycling and outdoor leisure industry.
“We are delighted to have acquired this long-standing and respected British brand,” said Matt Flanagan, managing director at MTF Enterprises Limited. “We have worked with EMU Electric Bike Company for over 10 years and know their products offer exceptional quality and value for money. EMU’s six models will complement and sit alongside our popular Dallingridge range.”
“This acquisition furthers our strategy to offer ebikes to suit all budgets and needs. The EMU brand is highly-regarded in the market, and the style, specification and performance of its products make it a welcome and valued new addition to our family. We look forward to introducing new models to the existing range in 2024 and to developing the brand still further over the years to come.”
