The name Ekkiden takes its inspiration from a Japanese sport we feel identified with. Ekiden is a marathon relay race that is run in teams. This sport is well-known for pushing limits and promoting human values. Relay running as part of a team allows us to go faster and further.


Relaying is essential for a company like ours, undergoing a surge of development. Our very evolution depends substantially on the quality of our relays. There is no pushing one's limits, and no success, without values or respect. This epitomises our DNA.
