The Josef Seibel Group

In 1886 one of the first shoe factories in Hauenstein (Germany) was founded by Carl-August Seibel. At that time he produced shoes and sandals in his own house.

Throughout the years the business countinued to grow.

In the 1980's new production facilities, offices and warehouses were built in Hauenstein, Hungary and Romania, allowing the company to grow even faster. In 2005 Josef Seibel took Romika Shoes from insolvency to a flourishing company within the Josef Seibel Group.

Today 3500 people are working under the management of Carl-August Seibel and Andreas Garnier for the Josef Seibel Group.

And we will continue to develop innovative products for the consumer unsing our know-how.
