About Pon

Working at Pon

A century ago, Pon started importing bicycles, cars and tires. We’ve since grown into a multinational concern that employs around 13,000 staff in 32 countries. Much has changed since those early days. But some things never change. The business spirit that created the Pon organization is as alive today as it was then.

The World of pon

Our world is an arena that features the most alluring cars, the strongest earthmoving machinery, the fastest bikes, the most powerful ships engines, the smartest customized installations, and the best tools. That’s why, the world over, we work with A-brand manufacturers like Audi, Porsche, Volkswagen, Caterpillar, MAN, Continental, as well as through our own, leading bicycle brands such as Gazelle, Cervélo and Focus.

Pon one of Best Employers in the Netherlands

Pon was again awarded the Top Employers Nederland 2015 certification. Our comprehensive independent research revealed that Pon provides exceptional employee conditions, nurtures and develops talent throughout all levels of the organisation and has demonstrated its leadership status in the HR environment, always striving to optimise its employment practices and to develop its employees.
