RB Products Official Statement

rb_products

We received the following statement from RB Products today announcing that the company is “to be placed under the protection of the Commercial Court of Grenoble… The goal of this action is to ensure the continuation of the activity by the intervention of a new shareholder.

The news will naturally shock a few of our readers however here at NeoBuggy we take a positive pragmatic view on the statement from RB – a period of restructuring is ahead as they are able to retain the management but operating under difficult French company law and taxation rules requiring significant administration has made it incredibly hard for the company to survive in the long term – that said it shows a great deal of respect and class to see the company put out an official statement regarding their situation prior to the rumour mill running out of control.

RB as a company and brand were one of the first to support NeoBuggy, they have moulded and shaped modern day RC Racing starting off with fuel and engines only to hit even greater heights; memorably at the 2013 Euro B Championships with their record breaking car, engine, fuel, tyres, ADS victory – a feat very difficult to repeat!

As a functioning company with staff, warehouse, departments, end-to-end support etc. We wish them all the best for the future which surely is bright with an anticipated 2015 Engine release this week!
