MeindlOnce there were proper boot manufacturers in Germany – hundreds of boot factories. Today, Meindl is one of the few boot factories with proper production located in Germany. Here, in our factory in Kirchanschöring in Bavaria, over 200 colleagues are employed in making boots – good boots! We are continuing a centuries-old tradition, because Meindl has made boots in Kirchanschöring for over 300 years. Even if our hand craft production is today supported by modern equipment, each machine is operated by a person, carrying out one of over 200 work steps that are required in manufacturing a high-quality walking boot. Our master shoe-makers have the sensitivity, the experience and the commitment that a natural product such as leather, our principal material, needs, and they implement our own quality-assurance systems. We have not renounced hand-crafted quality in favour of breaking into the mass market. With ingenuity, flexibility and market focus, we make boots of hand-made quality, which is what the market expects from us.
We produce over one million pairs of boots and shoes annually and supply them for the most important outdoor markets of the world. Up mountains, when Nordic walking, in the city, out hiking – no matter where you are walking in the world, Meindl boots are reliable companions for your feet.
Our high-quality products need specialist retailers as partners. For this reason, we have further extended our sales-support team for retail sales and our subsequent-delivery service by building a new logistical centre here in Kirchanschöring. Numerous national and international prizes and awards confirm our striving for quality and innovation.
