Gerli, the German company that owns the Dockers brand for shoes in Europe, began to recover last year with a sales increase of 2.4 percent is targeting a further increase of between 5 and 10 percent of this year, despite flat results in the first half, because of the orders it has collected, especially for its “yellow boots” and its women's shoes. The company has shifted some production from Thailand to Cambodia. It continues to make most of its shoes in Vietnam and China, and it has opened an office in Dongguan to help key accounts to fine-tune the choice of products that they want to source in the area.
