SIP Scootershop turns 25 Years: 1994-2019
It’s a quarter of a century since we founded SIP Scootershop in a garage. We stored our first products between the beehives owned by Alex’s father. In the absence of staff, we took the parcels to the post office by Vespa ourselves. Those were the days!
A lot has happened over the past two and a half decades: We have taken plenty of right decisions, and some wrong ones. We've met people who've become friends. We have been able to look at the topic of "scooters" from a variety of angles. There have been stressful times, like sitting in front of the keyboard at two o'clock in the morning in the cold former barracks in Erpftinger Straße wearing our jackets and gloves trying to come up with descriptive texts for the next catalogue. There have been moments of considerable joy, such as the road trips with friends and employees, when we arrived at the sea after a 1,000 km journey, with dust from the road on our faces, and raised a toast over an ice-cold beer. We have laughed, mused, celebrated and mourned together. This time line tells of these stories, highlights the milestones of the SIP history and reports about the big and small things that have made us into the company we are today.
In the future, we want to continue with the balancing act that has been important to us over the past 25 years: On the one hand to be an efficient, modern company and on the other, an authentic, honest family business.
We would like to take this opportunity to thank all our employees for their dedication and enthusiasm. We would like to thank all our customers for their trust and their loyalty to our brand over many years. Without you there would be no SIP Scootershop.
We hope to welcome as many of you as possible to our events and get to know you there over the years to come. Here’s to the next 25 years!
Have fun with the SIP 1994-2019 time line. We wish you an accident-free scooter season!
