Dear friends, dear Hanwag Community,
the current situation is new to us. To you. To everyone. But we are taking it very seriously and have adjusted our business activities in order to minimize further spread of COVID-19. Accordingly, we are following developments in all our markets and comply with new recommendations and regulations from local authorities as they come.
In this moment we are all responsible to do our best, to keep the most vulnerable safe. We feel responsible for the safety of our customers, employees, suppliers and vendors and are doing our best to help flatten the curve of the coronavirus spread and lower the burden on health care systems in any way we can.
We are shoemakers. We make shoes for mountaineers, for people who love the outdoors, for people who have to rely on good shoes while following their professions in often very harsh conditions in nature. Responsible behavior is essential for rope teams on the mountains and endeavors in the wild – and now becoming relevant for all of us now. Keeping a positive state of mind and staying loyal and helpful to your fellow mountaineers, to other trekkers and to colleagues can make all the difference.
We hope your family, friends and colleagues are safe and well, and are taking the necessary precautions to keep it that way. We will keep you updated as things develop.
Thomas Gröger, CEO Hanwag GmbH
