MEC - KessTech and Cult-Werk in Joint Venture
German exhaust sound specialists KessTech and Austrian parts and accessory designer Cult-Werk have created a new joint venture company called MEC GmbH - The Motorcycle Equipment Company.
MEC will operate the KessTech and Cult-Werk brands under one roof in a merger that is described as creating "an unparalleled combination of strong and symbolic cult brands. The new MEC is perfectly positioned to enable bikers to realize their dream of the perfect motorcycle."
Owners and Co-CEOs Mario Altendorfer and Christian Schütte say that they are "constantly thinking outside the box to make riders' dream bikes come true. The new partnership with Cult-Werk creates the ideal mix of bikers, engineers, technicians, financiers, designers, Q-managers, marketeers, buyers, web designers, graphic designers, sales people, technicians, warehouse staff, welders, event managers and more - a broad based team whose specialist skills complement each other perfectly to master new challenges.
"KessTech and Cult-Werk products stand for optimal functionality, increased performance, perfect design, high quality and ergonomics. The result is a unique company for high-quality equipment parts such as exhaust systems, fenders, rear ends and license plate brackets to make every motorcycle unique.
"The strength of KessTech in sales, technology, homologation and processing is combined with the fine feeling for trends, design and marketing of Cult-Werk. The combined company will have its headquarters at KessTech in Obertheres, Germany, and an R&D Center at Cult-Werk in Aigen-Schlägl, Austria.
