At BCA, we're exited to bring bicycle manufacturing back to the USA! We've opened a factory in Manning, South Carolina and have created over 100 new jobs!
The Bicycle Corporation of America opened its factory doors in October of 2014. Since then we have brought over 100 jobs back to the USA. We're committed to continuing our efforts to bring manufacturing back home. Ride USA - Ride BCA!
Where are you riding this weekend?
The coolest thing we did this week was travel to South Carolina to visit our friends at BCA Bicycles, where we took a grand tour of their bicycle factory to see where our #Amtrykes will be built. Be on the lookout for more tour pics, plus a sneak peek of our new #Amtryke warehouse! 👀 🚲
Big smiles and big cheers for riding bikes in the New Year!

The administration's new tariff increase is set to take effect at midnight tonight. Watch how these tariffs would impact an American business like Sout Carolina's BCA Bicycles, where increased costs would be passed on to consumers.
We're gearing up (get it?) for National Bike to Work Day on May 17th! 🚲

How tariffs hurt South Carolina companies like BCA Bicycles: "There's been discussion that these tariffs are penalizing China, but really that's not what's happening. The real victim of these tariff increases are consumers."
BCA brings jobs to Clarendon: Bicycle assembly facility leads the way in U.S. production
"Kamler said he’s enjoyed his working relationship with Clarendon County development officials and leaders, and Manning is tickled pink to have BCA.
“We’ve actually been talking with the town,” he said, “and they’re thinking about putting up a sign: ‘Home of the largest bicycle factory in the United States.’”"

Walmart sells a lot of bicycle brands, but only one operates its production in the United States. Bicycle Corporation of America is the only supplier of U.S. produced bicycles to Walmart's 4,000 stores across the country, and their operations are set up right next door in Manning. We rode over to the Clarendon County manufacturer to see how they keep things rolling.
