The Swiss office of ANWR Garant has signed a cooperation agreement with Alois Beck, a German shoe producer, for the exclusive distribution of its collection in Switzerland. At the end of 2016, Alois Beck established a joint venture for the development, production and sale of a collection of women's and men's lounge shoes made in Moldova by a local manufacturer, Floare, that was previously working for Rohde. In March 2017, a court in Marburg issued a preliminary injunction against Alois Beck, forbidding it from selling two models that were imitating classical Rohde styles and that had been presented at the Expo Riva Schuh fair a few months earlier. The models were apparently going to be made by Floare.
