Rott, the German producer of comfort and lounge shoes which shares a common distributor in France with Romika, Jacques Hanssens, is shutting down completely its remaining production in Ludwigswinkel, on the French border, which still employs 28 persons. The production will be handled by various East European producers, some of which were already working for the brand. The local administrative, sales and logistic functions are combined with those of Sanova, the brand of orthopedic shoes and foot care products acquired by Julius Rott a few years ago.
