The road has already been paved. Utah is a home to cycling enthusiasts and one of the biggest races in the country. It's also the headquarters of some of the biggest companies in the business like Quality Bike Products in Ogden.
Mayor Caldwell said, "When you have a distribution company like that all the manufacturers and component makes and everything else like to be close."
And that's exactly what's happened. Scott USA, 907, ENVE Composites have all set up shop in Ogden.
ENVE Composites CEO Sarah Lehman explained, "It has the mountains! Everyone who works here rides here so it's the perfect testing ground."
ENVE Composites manufactures some of the most durable carbon fiber components in the industry and they're excited about the mayor's plans to bring in more biking business to the city.
"The more business that comes here the better it will be,” said Lehman. “From the supply chain perspective with QBP as a distributor and a number of other high end dealers in Salt Lake area, so this Mecca of a bike industry is really going to be helpful."
That's what Mayor Caldwell is trying to sell the Taiwanese companies. He's using TRK Break, a company that moved from Taiwan to Ogden a year ago, as an example.
"Part of the trip to Taipei was to talk to a lot of other manufacturing companies in Taiwan who are interested in coming to North America, but they're not quite sure how to make that investment,” explained Caldwell.
Some of the business deals could be moving very quickly. Mayor Caldwell will be traveling to Monterey, California this weekend for the Sea Otter Expo where some of these Taiwanese companies will be attending.
