LOWA company headquarter in Jetzendorf

Mission Statement

Our philosophy

LOWA’s guiding prin­ciples give the company and its employees a framework for reasoning that can be used as a basis for making decisions and presenting them both internally and externally. The prin­ciples serve as a standard and orientation for employees and customers.

Simply more…

This is a slogan that has defined our business for years and captures the true spirit of LOWA as a company – its zest for “simply more…”!

We are a global outdoor company that never forgets its roots. We develop, produce and market shoes. We base our business on three over­arching goals: the best quality, a perfect fit and innov­ations in all areas.

This commitment is reflected in every aspect of our business and extends well beyond the boundaries of the company’s oper­ations. We are driven by sustainable company growth, not short-term trends. Tradi­tional values such as trust, honesty and respect shape our business. We apply these prin­ciples not only to our daily inter­actions with one another, but also to our business rela­tionships.

Our rock-solid foundation is the production of the very best products, and we make no compromises in ensuring this. We are always aware of the respons­ibility we have toward our customers, retailers, partners, suppliers and producers. In this era of glob­al­isation, we purposely apply a philosophy of “Made in Europe” – and require our suppliers and producers to sign our Code of Conduct.

Our employees are our most precious resource. We embrace diversity, pay fair wages, offer social benefits and support our employees indi­vidually in their devel­opment. We tackle things together and stand behind our products personally.

As an inter­na­tional outdoor brand, we consider nature and the envir­onment. We use resources sparingly and system­at­ically consider sustain­ability in our devel­opment work. We are also clearly committed to our home in Bavaria. We are deeply rooted in the region and support a range of social projects.
