From a one-man cobblers' operation in 1894, the Bata Shoe Company has grown to became one of the world's leading shoe manufacturing and retailing companies, with a retail network spanning across more than 70 countries. At the forefront of innovation since its inception, not only in the production and design of new styles, but in the creation of business models that permit a quick response to rapidly changing markets.
Today, after more than 125 years, Bata has remained true to its core principle: to know its customers and to create the best possible products to meet their needs.
We are organized into three business units: Bata, Bata Industrials (safety shoes) and AW Lab (sports style).
We have a portfolio company with more than 20 brands and labels, such as Bata, North Star, Power, Bubblegummers, Weinbrenner, Sandak or Toughees.
