On the weekend of 30 and 31 March 2019 the hostettler group inaugurated its updated retail shops with an “Open Weekend” at its headquarters in Sursee (LU) after five months of refurbishment. Approximately 4,000 visitors joined in the celebrations.
The company Freidig Moto-Active, wholesaler for motorbike accessories, rider equipment and spare parts located in the Canton of Berne, fits extremely well into hostettler group’s existing portfolio. With the acquisition on 1 January 2019, 13 new employees have joined the hostettler group.
As of 1 October 2018 the refurbishment work will be starting at the headquarters of the hostettler group in Sursee. The retail shop belonging to the subsidiary hostettler retail ag is being given a Yamaha motorcycle showroom in line with the latest standards and a modern clothing and accessories shop. The business will keep running with a few restrictions during the refurbishment phase. The new sales areas and showrooms will open in March 2019.
