Bike Rack Supplier Dero Expands Minneapolis, Minnesota, Facility

Dero, a company that supplies innovative bike parking and bicycle transit solutions, moved to an expanded production center at 42 Northern Stacks Drive in Minneapolis, Minnesota.

According to company officials, relocation allows Dero to increase its operational footprint to better serve customers. This facility expands Dero’s bike rack manufacturing, to continue to meet the growing demand for bike parking. The building is within the new Northern Stacks commercial development, just north of Downtown Minneapolis. Dero is sharing this space with Everlast Climbing, also a PlayCore company. The shared lobby will feature a 28-foot Everlast climbing wall.

This move also provides additional staff amenities, such as a fitness room, showers and locker room, and of course, more room for bike parking and a bicycle maintenance area. Plus the old ping pong and foosball tables made the move as well. Dero now offers staff access to a brand new e-bike fleet for bicycle commuting and continues its $6 per day incentive when employees bike, walk, use transit, or carpool to work, using its Dero ZAP technology to automatically track these trips.

“We’re excited that with this new building, we’re able to grow and continue to up our game in manufacturing to better serve our customers," states Andy Lageson, General Manager of Dero, “and we’re proud to continue to support our employees in decreasing single occupancy vehicle use by encouraging other commuter options, such as biking, with our new amenities.”
