Servus, nazdár and nihao!
WM trading specialises in import, logistics, construction and production and is the exclusive representative of various brands in the bicycle industry. With experience and commitment we bridge Europe and Asia bringing together construction and manufacturing.
“We connect people with their passion for bikes, we mediate between Europe and the Far East and we link brands with their markets.”
WM trading is fronted by Axel Keller, who founded the company in late 2007. Immediately after finishing high school, he opened a bike shop in Stuttgart: “Doppel-Axel”.
Ever since the energetic bike-enthusiast has helped to shape the industry in innovative ways: Since previous roles at Diamant Fahrradwerke GmbH, Zéfal SA and Cartoni helmets GmbH, Axel founded the trading agency Axel-Keller-Handelsagentur in 2005, which evolved into WM trading GmbH two years later.
WM trading has grown continually and widened its core competencies from trade and import to the areas of development and production – always in exchange between Germany and Asia. This bridging principle is also apparent in the company locations: WM trading runs a branch in Germany for customer care and a branch in Asia for producer supervision.
