Supplier profile: Triangle's, frame manufacturer from Portugal.

Triangle’s was a newcomer in 2015 as a cooperation project between three Portuguese component suppliers. Since then, the company has been manufacturing aluminium frames in an automated large-scale production plant – the first company to do so worldwide. Triangle's has managed to return high-quality frame-building back to Europe, benefiting Riese & Müller and the entire industry.

Triangle’s Cycling Equipments S.A.

"We are committed to being a sustainable company."

Armando Levi Silva, President Triangle’s Cycling Equipments S.A.

Why is production in Europe important to you?
Currently, around 85% of our suppliers are based in Europe, which is an important factor for us. This means that we have shorter distances to our customers, which reduces the lead time of all supply chains, and enables us to maintain close contact with suppliers. It also guarantees that all products and production processes comply with European guidelines, which helps us to become more and more environmentally friendly.

How would you describe your working relationship with us?
Our relationship with Riese & Müller is very important for both sides, because we are pursuing the same goal: creating added value through a circular economy. Both companies share the same mindset.

You are part of our sustainabill project. What insights have you gained from it?
Triangle's is committed to the sustainabill project, which aims to make our supply chain transparent. As an important supplier, we support the common goal of becoming an increasingly sustainable company.

What are the most important sustainability projects in your company?
At the moment, we are running various projects. For example, we are endeavouring to reduce our energy consumption as much as possible and use green electricity. Today, we produce a good 20% of our electricity needs ourselves. To achieve this, we have installed a photovoltaic plant with some 1,000 panels on our premises. We are planning to double this number in the next two years.
Overall we are committed to being a sustainable company and are guided by the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. We are convinced that we can make our contribution by using clean energy, handling resources responsibly, producing sustainably and creating decent working conditions.

You signed the Shift Cycling Culture's Cycling Industry Climate Commitment. What was your motivation for doing so?
We are very proud to support this commitment by the cycling industry. We want to play an active role in raising awareness and encouraging all stakeholders to modify their behaviour. By doing so, we hope to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% by 2030, to create a better, more environmentally-friendly and sustainable world for future generations.
