GOVECS Supplier Forum

Late last month I attended my very first supplier forum. The feat itself was ever more rewarding since it was for a project that I am currently leading. Because GOVECS is a fairly small company with very start-up roots, our projects and scooters often don’t get the attention and consideration of other high volume customers…

Really Expensive Vespa’s

How much would you be willing to spend on a vintage scooter? €8.000? Maybe €20.000, because it’s a classic and will surely increase in value? Have a look below, and say out loud the price you think this scooter is worth: And now let me tell you that you’re wrong. Way off. Not even in…
