Sustainable, certified, committed.
Our production sites
think like us.
Good quality is not a coincidence.
At the beginning there is the design. Then we consider with whom we can best implement the respective model. Many aspects play important roles here: who supplies the best leather? Do they have their own tanneries? Do the partner companies support us, or do they manufacture the shoe completely? What kind of sole do we need? How many will be produced? Who has the necessary capacity?
We have our own production facilities in Hungary, Romania and India. Good to know: even though we’re not all in one place, we’re still aligned in terms of production. From work and product preparation, to leather and form development, to the production of the uppers and the injection of the soles, we all work hand in hand. And to the same quality and sustainability standards. Our Code of Conduct ensures this. A look at our production facilities shows that everyone here puts their heart and soul into their work. No matter where in the world.
We’re happy to take responsibility. For our partners, too.
For us, cooperation means give and take.
Just as we can rely on our partners, they, too, can rely on us. Among other things, we make sure that all partner companies operate at as full a capacity as possible. And when one of them can’t, the next one steps in. In our own production facilities in India and Romania we ensure that our shoemakers are picked up from home in the morning and taken back in the evening. Here, we run our own kindergarten and contribute to the communities in which we manufacture.
Our production site
in Vellore: committed to people
and technically accomplished.
Social responsibility is particularly important to us.
In Vellore (in the Tamil Nadu region), we think the same way on the one hand, but quite differently on the other. When it comes to tried and tested aspects such as high quality and the aspiration to source our materials regionally, our site in India is exactly the same as those in Europe. Which is a result of close cooperation on an equal footing between all our locations.
On the other hand, our employees in this region haven’t grown up with all things that are commonplace elsewhere. That’s why we show a special care that is completely tailored to the culture. For all about 1000 employees.
Listening means appreciating.
We always listen to the concerns and needs of our employees. And try to find good solutions together with them for all their concerns. We collect our female employees from home with our shuttle service and bring them back after work. Shifts are coordinated with them so that they can optimally reconcile their private and professional lives. For the children, there’s a separate nursery. And at our Family Day, held every Saturday, family members can get a better picture of their loved one’s work and workplace. With lunch and Q&A sessions included. But because small wishes are sometimes just as valuable as a monthly salary, we are happy to fulfil them as well.
Always with the big picture in mind.
Since we mainly produce uppers in India, it’s also particularly important for us to show the shoemakers what the finished shoe looks like in the end. In this way they put their hearts and souls into their work because they know exactly what’s important and the contribution they are making. Many employees value the exchange with their colleagues from other sites. In this way, we grow together in our tasks.
Our local engagement doesn’t stop with our own people. Education isn’t a given in Vellore, which is why we finance a school in the community where we produce. This is another reason why our employees enjoy working for us and often bring their family members into the legero united team.
