Dear business partners,
More than ninety years of shoe manufacture in Tragwein did not happen all on its own. My predecessors laid the foundations for that development through their hard work and vision.
The family business founded by my grandfather in 1925 experienced a host of ups and downs in uncertain times and has survived major political and social upheavals.
From the outset, we have striven to manufacture high-quality shoes in a difficult marketplace.
To achieve that goal, high-quality materials, a comfortable fit, skilled workmanship and a passion for the craft of shoemaking are the prerequisites.
The company has been able to hold its own through respecting those key values, so that now, more than ever before, it can look forward to a successful future.
Our long-term objectives include staying agile, planning ahead in structures and technology, keeping our employees motivated and reliable, and a steady rate of growth.
We also consider it our responsibility to behave sustainably in social matters and towards the environment. One of our key tasks is to continually improve the quality of our products and service for our customers, since it is they who are our true employers.
Owing to our ongoing expansion, we are able to guarantee operations in Tragwein for our employees and thus continue to contribute to the development of our traditional home. By doing so, we also lay the foundations for the next generation and can be sure that the SCHÜTZE SCHUHE brand will live on.
Thank you for your loyalty and trust in us.
In future, we will continue our commitment to our motto
"SAFETY WITH COMFORT"
Best wishes from the beautiful Austrian Mühlviertel,
