Huffy recently opened a new office in Miami Twp. The company, which dates back 125 years in the Dayton area, moved from Centerville into an office at 8877 Gander Creek with 40 percent more space.
“Dealers told me there are opportunities for incremental business, in between the high end of mass market bikes, and the low end of specialty bikes,” Huffy’s CEO Bill Smith said in a statement. “Huffy is in a unique position to leverage its strengths and provide that.”
In October, Smith had said while speaking at a Dayton Area Chamber of Commerce event that the company has had to adapt its business model for an e-commerce world.
Besides the deals with independent bike dealers to serve as distribution centers for online sales, the company’s strategy includes a new Ebay store and easy-to-assemble bikes, which are better suited for selling online and shipping.
