The Gabor Shoes AG
Today Gabor is one of the best known brand of ladies’ shoes in Germany and is also one of the largest in the sector in Europe and worldwide.
Gabor's corporate roots go back to a business for shoe and leather goods trade, which was opened by Pius Gabor in Groß-Strehlitz in 1919. Following the Second World War, Pius‘ sons, Bernhard and Joachim, risked a fresh start in 1949. With only the simplest of means, they founded B. & J. Gabor Damenschuhfabrik in Barmstedt, near Hamburg – the forerunner of Gabor Shoes AG, which today has its headquarters in Rosenheim, in Upper Bavaria.
Gabor is a leading manufacturer of high quality, fashionable women's shoes. In addition to fashionable topicality, the Gabor brand shoe is characterised by its superb fit and workmanship quality.
The family-run company is managed by Achim Gabor in the 2nd generation. This long-standing experience provides the foundation for what the company refers to as "Gabor quality". It is the most discerning quality standards regarding every single pair of shoes that have turned Gabor into a traditional brand.
But tradition isn’t everything. The last few years have been characterised by the introduction of new technologies and product lines. Licences for handbags and shoe care complete the range of products. Rollingsoft is a new product line for the growth segment of health and wellbeing.
