The Prodecotech Story
In 2007 Robert Provost and Daniel Del Aguila were running a successful company manufacturing electronics for consumers and businesses in South Florida. Their products ranged from closed circuit TV systems to personal electronics for individuals. Additionally, they also owned and operated a flourishing 12,000 sf motor sports store. They quickly grew frustrated with the low quality of the electric bikes they were importing from overseas.
As they kept removing parts from the pre-fab bikes and replacing them with better components they shopped for themselves, they began to wonder: Why can’t someone just get this process right the first time? Soon, along with Jim Aversa, their head mechanic at the time, they were asking themselves another question: Why not us?
What followed was a multi year quest to gather as much information as possible about the electric bike business. Why, for instance, were these eBikes doing so well in Europe and Asia but not in North America? Robert, Daniel and Jim – who was elevated to business partner in 2009 – spent four years traveling to dozens of national bike shows, setting up a booth and asking dealers and consumers alike: What do you want in an eBike? What features would make you take the plunge?
The result of all that careful research showed that Americans wanted a product that was designed, engineered and assembled in the USA with emphasis on the following elements:
- HIGH QUALITY
- • LOW MAINTENANCE
- • PORTABILITY
- • LIGHTWEIGHT STRUCTURE
- • AFFORDABILITY
- • MODERN STYLE
A long process of trial and error has proved time and again that outsourcing production of bicycles only yields failure. At ProdecoTech, the core principles remain patriotic, eco-friendly, and customer oriented. As a rising company, ProdecoTech recognizes it is extremely important to get the job done right the first time. That is why Robert, Daniel and Jim spent so much time and energy developing a superstar product for the emerging U.S. eBike market.
We regularly elicit better reviews than eBikes costing two and sometimes three times as much as our product lines.
