BLD acquires FI International and TopgearSuperstore

BLD Group has purchased FI International including Topgear Superstore out of administration to continue its push into the wider retail motorcycle sector.

FI International, founded in 1998, was the exclusive importer of German manufacturer Alpha Technik’s power restriction kits into the UK. The restrictors were the only ones approved by the TÜV Sued and tested in accordance with the latest EC-Regulations.  FI also operated one of the largest motorcycle kit and accessories websites in the UK,

BLD has acquired the businesses out of administration and their co-founder, Fred Thomas, will join BLD to oversee the integration and to drive the growth of the business.

Jason Richards, CEO of BLD Group commented: “BLD is continuing its drive into the wider motorcycle market using its core bike skills and expertise.  The acquisition of FI International and TopGear was too good an opportunity to miss and significantly accelerates BLD’s retail growth by bringing two large new existing businesses and customer bases to the group.  Combining Topgear with our existing retail website and six UK wide motorcycle service centres will enhance our already compelling offering to bikers across the UK.”
