Our parent company, Pentland Group Plc, was founded in the early 1930s in Liverpool, England. It was then called the Liverpool Shoe Company because it dealt purely in shoes; first a wholesale shoe business, then expanding into a manufacturing business.
Always displaying innovation and creativity, Pentland was one of the first companies to manufacture from Asia, forming a division in Hong Kong in the early 1960s. In 1981, Pentland purchased the majority share of a tiny US company called Reebok. After a 10-year period of steady growth, Reebok was sold. In the 1990s, Pentland continued to grow through acquisition and today they proudly boast a portfolio of some of the world’s most well-known international sports, outdoor and fashion brands with global sales exceeding USD $1.6 billion.
