Merida Industry Co., Ltd (MIC) is a Taiwan-based company that designs, manufactures and markets bicycles globally in over 77 countries. Founded in 1972 by Ike Tseng (1932–2012), the company designs and manufactures over 2 million bicycles a year. Its factories are in Taiwan, China and Germany. The latter is where its R&D headquarters are based. After Tseng’s death in January 2012, his son Michael Tseng became the company’s President.

After making bicycles as an OE manufacturer for numerous other brands, the company established its own brand in 1988.

Merida is a publicly traded company on the Taiwanese stock exchange (since 1992) and is valued as of 2012 at approximately £350 million. It’s one of Taiwan’s largest companies. Furthermore, in 2001, they bought 49% of Specialized for a reported US$30 million.

With an enviable pedigree, Merida truly is one of the world’s most renowned bicycle brands. With a wide portfolio, it manufactured bicycles for companies including Mongoose. Also, in 2007, they invested $7 million to renovate its 35-year-old factory in Taichung, without halting production!

Merida eMTBs have notably won numerous accolades in recent times and are at the forefront of high performance ebikes.
