There used to be a number of shoe manufacturing towns in Germany, supporting hundreds of factories. Today, however, MEINDL is now one of the few footwear manufacturers actually producing boots in Germany. MEINDL employ over 200 people at our factory in Kirchanschoring, Bavaria making quality footwear. We continue a centuries old tradition of making handmade footwear and have been a shoemaker for more than 300 years in Kirchanschoring. The method of production has changed over the years and now people man the machines that carry out one of over 200 work stages that are required to make a high-quality trekking boot. Naturally, we also employ master shoemakers, who in the truest sense of the world »take a hand in things«. They also have the feel and experience required to work with our main material., leather and the product quality that we require. We have not lost the skills of hand making boots at the expense of the need for mass production. With product innovation, manufacturing flexibility and a good understanding of the market requirements we make quality footwear. This is how we wish to succeed in a globally competitive market.
We produce over one million pairs of footwear and deliver them to the most important outdoor markets in the world. In the Alps, in the deserts of Africa and Asia, in the South American jungle or in the Australian outback – alpinists, adventurers and people who travel a great deal on foot swear by Meindl boots and shoes. On mountains, when Nordic walking or hiking, irrespective of where you are in the world, Meindl can provide you with reliable footwear for your feet.
Our high-quality products require the specialist trade as a partner. For this reason we have further extended our sales support to the specialist trade and our supply service with the building of a new logistics centre here in Germany. The numerous national and international awards that we have won confirm the level of quality and innovation. We are pleased to be successful and are supported by a committed workforce and excellent relationship within the footwear trade.
