Aleš Zemánek - founder and CEO of AZUB

Libor Zemánek

PRODUCTION SINCE 2006

Libor is Laďa’s son which makes him Aleš’s nephew. So AZUB is basically a family company where many other Aleš’s relatives who supported him at the beginnings of his business still work. Today they give the company a bit of a family touch. Libor joined AZUB straight after finishing secondary school and became an expert on the construction of tricycles when the company teamed up with the Australian Greenspeed. Later, he became the head of the whole production division. At the beginning of 2016, it became necessary to improve the delivery of assembly parts, as more and more bikes and trikes were being custom built, so he has focused on parts ordering and quick deliveries of bicycle parts and components.

Libor’s big hobby is challenging multi-discipline events, such as the Spartan Race or Army Run. Although at the beginning of his “Spartan” career no one really thought he would succeed and persevere, he sure did. And now, he has started occupying really interesting places even in races with a huge number of participants. His craziest race was Spartan Beast with 32 kilometers distance and 35 barriers.
