New GEEBEE assembly site in Nevers
The launch of our new Geebee assembly site took place on June 14, 2018, in Nevers in the Nièvre department of France!
Continuing on our great business venture, we are now extending beyond our borders, with the choice of the city of Nevers as the location of our new GEEBEE assembly site for the Western Europe market. Thanks to an economic mission initiated by managers of the Greater Nevers Urban Area Community with partners in Quebec, the city became the obvious choice for us to continue our growth abroad.
Located at the crossroads of our main Western European markets, Nevers enjoys a prestigious reputation when it comes to motorized sports, as well as expertise in mobility thanks to its Institut Supérieur de l’Automobile et des Transports.
On June 6, 2018, the FR3 Bourgogne show 19/20 did a great job of covering how our company got started in the city. You can view it here:

2017 Mission to France
Concept Geebee was part of the group that went to Paris for a trade mission in March 2017, organized by Réseau M.
Many activities were organized by Réseau M and its partners to allow us to meet with prospects and partners. Among others, we met with companies in the tourism, event management, logistics and courier service sectors, as well as a town council with its police department. We also gave an interview to Autoplus and we visited the facilities of Vente-Privée and the National Assembly. To sum up our week, we saw real enthusiasm for the GEEBEE and we also witnessed the maturity of the French sustainable mobility market. The GEEBEE has a future on the other side of the Atlantic.
