Berkemann has acquired a shoe factory in Martfü, Hungary. The German shoe company, based in Zeulenroda, will produce over 100,000 pairs of shoes per year at the new site. The takeover of the plant became necessary after Berkemann's existing Hungarian facility in Kiskunfélegyháza reached full capacity, said the company. With the acquisition, the company shows a commitment to invest in Europe to ensure good service. At the production site in Hungary, Berkemann will only use basic materials coming from Europe, such as poplar wood from Central European forestry, pollution-free leather and solvent-free adhesives.
