The soft heart of Bicycle Corporation of America

Posted by | January 2, 2019 9:46 am

Bicycle Corporation of America is not only one of the largest employers in Clarendon County, it also holds the title as the largest bicycle plant that produces in the U.S. However, as large as they are, both at home and overseas, neither BCA nor Kent International, it’s parent corporation, have lost sight of the community.

In 2019, BCA will open the doors to a second plant in Clarendon County and will start up two new product lines. One will be a pedal-assist bicycle with a lithium battery. The other will touch the lives of the special-needs community.

This surgery was not expected to be a permanent solution, and Stegall’s parents, … Read the rest
