Vermont Business Magazine Two Morrisville neighbors and famous Vermont brands are working together to build a better stationary bike. Manufacturing Solutions, Inc (MSI) has a long history of partnering with Concept2, Inc, best known for its rowing machines. As a manufacturing partner for Concept2’s renowned fitness and training products, MSI will again be working with Concept2, this time on the newly-launched BikeErg exercise bike.

Concept2 contracts MSI to provide physical assembly services for the new BikeErg, including putting together the components and calibrating the machines. Using ISO 9001 practices, MSI tests and verifies the workmanship of each BikeErg, with multiple checkpoints throughout the assembly process. Finished BikeErgs are packed, stored, and shipped from MSI’s warehouse.
As Concept2’s top-tier manufacturing partner, MSI provides similar services for the company’s Indoor Rowing Machines and SkiErgs.
“Concept2 and MSI have been business partners for over 20 years,” reports Glenn Dwyer, Director Global Supply Chain for Concept2. “We appreciate the outstanding value MSI provides as one of our highest performing suppliers: superior quality, on-time delivery, exceptional service and equitable costs. We are proud to work with MSI on our new BikeErg project, and look forward to growing our businesses together into the future.”
“Our relationship with Concept2 is indicative of our commitment to quality at its core,” shared Keith Koehler, Business Development Manager for MSI. “Outsourcing contract manufacturing work to MSI enables our customers to spend more time focusing on what they like to do most, while refining their core business strategies.”
MSI provides contract assembly, manufacturing, logistics, and fulfillment services. The company owns 332,000 square feet of property in Lamoille and Orleans County locations; much of which is available for commercial and/or residential lease.
