Mokumono Bicycles uses a style of manufacturing that combines automation and robotics to streamline the process and reduce the need for foreign production

Mokumono Bicycles aims to bring back local manufacturing to the Dutch biking industry through innovative and environmentally friendly techniques. The company creates bicycles using 3D Hubs in a method that combines automation and robotics, speeding up and simplifying manufacturing while also lessening the labor needed to develop the bicycles.

Tom Schiller and his brother Bob, an innovator who began the company as a design student, head the business. Early in the company’s life, a Kickstarter campaign raised €92,000 in funding for the initiative. This tremendous response helped developed the Delta, the company’s first bicycle, awarded the Gold award at Eurobike 2017, and which the company’s website describes as being “unique, fast, light and hassle-free.”

This description fits not only the product but also the company’s manufacturing process. Mokumono Bicycles is located in the Netherlands, a market densely filled with bikes made overseas. The Schillers aim to bring bicycle production back by making their products entirely in the Netherlands, made possible thanks to the automation of production, and serves as an example of how technology could be poised to disrupt the outsourcing trend within manufacturing and permit more efficient production world-wide.
