A Band of Brothers Unloading a Box
Lezyne team finds a tiny tradition when the time comes for Lezyne’s US warehouse to replenish its premium product reserves, it calls on a massive shipment straight from its manufacturing headquarters in Taiwan. Filled from floor to ceiling and wall to wall with fresh off-the-line goodies, peeling back the door to this massive inventory cache would seem to be an insurmountable task to a solitary one-man shipping department.
Such a task has been known to occupy the majority of a workweek to unload, log and compile all products into the warehouse. But here at Lezyne, employees rarely find that their day-to-day activities reflect that of their current position or title. In order to align with the style of this company, an employee must not only be a jack-of-all-trades but must also live to embrace the random.
Which is why every somber Friday morning, espresso in hand, a mess of Lezyne team members swarm the newfound product shipment to tackle the unload job in record time. While this seems like a common occurrence to some, it is quite rare to see such specialists in their specific departments band together on a single project.
Engineers, salesmen, graphic designers and marketers come together to unload their own livelihood out of a metal box, onto and shelf, and soon into the passionate hands of their customers. In what has become a microcosmic tradition, the Lezyne team pools its resources and discovers that what had previously taken days to accomplish, could be swiftly executed in less than one hour.
The events that unfold on a foggy Friday morning can be seen as yet another example of how Lezyne is constantly striving to become hyper-efficient and relentlessly cost-effective; a trademark characteristic that results in the highest quality and most affordable premium bike accessories on the market. Next time you see a semi truck barreling down the road loaded with unmarked consumer goods, think twice and see that perhaps this hollow hunk of metal might mean a whole lot more to a motley team of bike enthusiasts.
