GOVECS does not only stand for great products and innovative projects. It is our team spirit that distinguishes GOVECS further. Day by day our team develops, optimizes, produces and innovates electric mobility on two wheels. 

In our Polish plant in Wroclaw, Co-Founder Nicholas Holdcraft as VP Operations is responsible for engineering, product development and production. Following his studies at the renowned Northwestern University in Chicago, US-born Holdcraft had worked in several executive positions in Australia, Italy and Poland. He can look back on more than 10 years of experience in the field of production management and project planning in the still young electric mobility industry.

Every morning our management team in Wroclaw gathers for the Morning Meeting in order to plan the day and discuss the upcoming projects. “We at GOVECS live on the agility, the passion and creativity of our staff. This is why we are living a very open culture with flat hierarchies and without paradigms. We assign responsibility and are thus all working together for the bigger picture. In fact, this is the only way to quickly adapt to the most various requirements that we are encountering in implementing our projects.“

While in Wroclaw the Morning Meeting is taking place, the Munich-based colleagues are responsible for moving our scooters to the customers and bringing them onto the streets. Marketing, Sales and Finance as well as GOVECS’s CEO Thomas Grübel are seated in “Isar Valley“ – the strongest business location in Germany.  When he established the company back in 2009 he already had almost 10 years of experience in the e-mobility branch. Grübel’s first product – the “Street Devil” – used to be the first electric vehicle homologized in Germany, and he is deemed one of the most important visionaries of the industry ever since. “We are producing and marketing vehicles that are fun to ride and convey an ecological lifestyle, at the same time embodying modern mobility.“

Back to future

First there is a fleeting brainwave, a sudden inspiration that slowly develops to a concrete vision and quite often ends up in path-breaking inventions or globally successful enterprises. Brainwaves that Thomas Grübel knows well and that – with hindsight – made him the pioneer of two-wheeled electric mobility.

GOVECS introduces the fastest production Schwalbe in the world

After the Schwalbe had made a successful comeback as an electric scooter, GOVECS has doubled the speed of this cult two-wheeler, making history once again. Never before has a Schwalbe (German for swallow) flown so fast. With a top speed of 90 km/h and a range of up to 90 km, the new GOVECS light motorcycle is also winning the hearts of a technology-oriented target group in search of adrenaline. One outstanding feature of the new Schwalbe is the Bosch-made drive system with a maximum output of 8 kW. In addition to unparalleled driving pleasure, the Schwalbe also offers high safety and reliability “designed in Germany”.


Connectivity is everything

Networking that is advancing at breathtaking speed is revolutionising all areas of our lives. This is especially the case for transport. Experts expect that even in the near future 80% fewer cars will be congesting the roads in our towns because more and more people are switching from their own vehicles to sharing models. And these are based on intelligent connectivity solutions.
