Campos Lorca Bicycle Ltd began in 1970 when its founder Manuel Campos left competitive cycling and decided to continue with his passion for cycling, opening what is now the current company.
The small business steadily grew especially during the 90s with the incorporation of his children into the family business. Gradually the business grew in size and sales. In 2000, in parallel with retail wholesale distribution was initiated of various Spanish market brands and the distribution in Spain of internationally renowned brands such as Alan, Cinelli and Fondriest.
In 2007 the increase in sales resulted in a small warehouse located close to Malaga being added to the company.
With the increasing popularity of the internet and the natural need to grow, the Campos Lorca Bicycle website for online sales was created in 2009, marking a turning point for the company as well as more growth. The creation of an internet department now allows us to attend , via our webpage, to our individual customers from all over the world as well as to shops and cycling clubs.
With the internet and the continuing evolution of our website, the company has globalized, offering our products throughout Spain, Europe and in recent years the whole of Latin America as well as other emerging markets in Asia.
In 2008, we incorporated to the brands we offer, our personal logo and brand CLB, in order to offer products of top quality and design at competitive prices. All CLB products have been designed and developed by us and subsequently manufactured by the leading component manufacturers worldwide, always according to our designs and complying with EN regulations.
Current CLB components we manufacture include bike seats, handlebars, stems, bottle holders and headsets. However, we are constantly working to add to the components on offer with new additional products such as cycling glasses, wheels, handlebar tape and other articles with which, according to our premise of top quality for the best price, we believe can improve the products on offer in the current market.
Our design philosophy for products in our CLB brand is based on manufacturing products designed BY CYCLISTS and FOR CYCLISTS.
Together with the increase in the importation and wholesale distribution of the major component brands such as Olmo, Deda, Miche, Guerciotti, FSA, Tufo, etc., the size of the company has grown significantly year after year, and last year in 2012 reached one of the most important milestones in the history of the company, the move of our shop and display to our new premises in ‘Ortega y Gasset’, leaving our “historic” headquarters in Alcalde Díaz Zafra street, which is now used as storage. The move, carried out last November 2012, has increased the retail store and warehouse area to a new space of 400m2.
The new premises along with a larger team have allowed us to improve and increase the volume and speed in the online ordering process as well as in customer service in direct sales to the public.
Thanks to the confidence and trust our customers place in us, we expect to continue to grow and improve the development and products on offer and to continue to innovate in order to deliver the service and quality our customers expect and to continue motivated to meet new challenges.
