History
Founded in 1909 to make guns, in 1919, after World War I, BH began making bicycles.
During the 1960s, the main BH factory in Vitoria manufactured not just frames but everything from saddle to spokes and handlebar.
In the early 1990s, BH purchased Peugeot and founded Cycleurope. Cycleurope owns Bianchi, Peugeot and Gitane. In 1996, BH sold Cycleurope to concentrate on home markets of Spain and in Portugal.
In 2001, it re-focused on the pan-European market.

Today, BH has two manufacturing and assembly facilities in Vitoria and another one in Águeda, Portugal. The facilities include CNC laser machining which also produces fitness equipment and parts for BMW and Mercedes Benz. BH manufactures 200,000 bicycles a year, 50% of which are exported to European countries other than Spain.
