Customer Service Representative
Trek Bicycle Corporation is the world leader in bicycle products and accessories with over 1,600 employees
worldwide. What began as a vision in an old barn in 1976 to handcraft the finest bikes in the world is today a
reality. Trek is dedicated to building bikes for the riders who inspire us, from the world's greatest cyclist to the kid
next door. We have been building these bikes for over 25 years, and we are still looking to improve. That drive
for new ideas and passion for building and selling bikes made us expand rapidly. Currently we have offices in the
States, Asia, UK, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, and the Netherlands. In the latest one mentioned, we have our
European Headquarters located in Amersfoort and our main European Warehouse in Wijchen. Part of the
European Headquarters is the Customer Service Department Benelux. This department offers service and support
