Transit Center
History

1996

From love and passion!

The beginning of the Transit Center is closely related to huge passion for motoring and the great love of two people. These two reasons caused that at the end of 1996, after our marriage, TC company was created. At the beginning it was called PHU "Bimera" and was the first step on the long road that we walking (/beating) to this day...

was created. The beginnings were difficult, we started practically from scratch. The first money earned in Great Britain and borrowed from the family was invested in a plot of land in Pędzewo. With time, temporary makeshift garages and a wooden office are built on it. This is how our adventure began!

Endless journey
for parts

We change the name to the Transit Center. From that moment, we only deal with the trade of parts for Ford Transit. This period meant continuous trips to Great Britain in search of used parts. The journey was always accompanied by Ford Transit MK5, which has earned the greatest sentiment in our hearts. Transit van has always brought us home safely!

Importing parts
from abroad

In addition to personal Transit trips, we're starting to import parts on a larger scale. Lorries loaded to roofs come to the company, and the first containers had arrived at the port.

based on Ford Transit van

The concept of constructing the world's first delivery vehicle for motorsport was born in the mind of Marcin Wicik in 2010. The original idea was to build the first Transit Ford for Rallycross. Ultimately, the vehicle was adapted to drifting, thanks to cooperation with Polody Performance.

Modern Wonder Woman - how to develop a company with three children?

The automotive company, which is undoubtedly the Transit Center, is a huge piece of my life. I devoted a lot of time, commitment and passion to it. Although I don’t have education related to car mechanics (because I graduated from economics), I am probably the only woman in the world who has all the parts for Ford Transit in a small finger.

For 20 years I have known all the possible ills, faults and failures occurring in Transits. Dozens vans was miraculously healed with a few telephone tips. I have gained experience from the observation of the Rallycross Champion of Poland - my husband, who is the undisputed authority in this field. However, work isn’t everything! I am an ordinary mother of three wonderful children. I like physical effort - from fitness classes, through Zumba to Pole Dance. Recipe for success? Realization of goals, great family, striving for perfection.
