With the business mission of being “Forever Faster”, PUMA aim high to be the Fastest Sports Brand in the World. For more than 70 years, PUMA has been developing sports footwear, apparel and accessories for the best athletes. PUMA’s range of sports apparel is designed by incorporating performance and sports inspiration into their products such as women shorts.
From Humble Beginnings to International Breakthrough
PUMA’s long-standing tradition of producing high-quality athletic goods started with the Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory, established by Rudolf and Adolf Dassler in their German home in 1919. 28 years later, the brothers fell out and went separate ways. Rudolf Dassler relocated to another building that belonged to the family and established PUMA. He converted this storage building into a factory with the aid of 14 workers. And the rest was history.
Leaders On And Off The Field
The playing field is more varied than ever today. whether it be on the football field, golf course, or running track. PUMA provides athletes with the equipment they need to succeed, from running shoes to golf clubs. PUMA sportswear is versatile clothing that you may style in many different ways, even when you are not participating in sports.
PUMA’s Business Philosophy
Similar to how they see athletics, PUMA sees sustainability as a process of identifying and strengthening areas of weakness in order to achieve shared objectives. By improving on social and environmental issues where they have the largest influence, such as Plastic & Oceans, Circularity, Biodiversity, and others, PUMA aims to bring about change via fashion and sportswear.
PUMA: Culture of Firsts
PUMA aims to always bring better and unique innovations to sports for game changing athletes. Back in 1984, the RS Computer Shoe was created in the PUMA Running Studio where the team leveraged on computer technology to create better running shoes. Today, PUMA continues experimenting with digital technology to bring out the best in athletes.
Reform, Equality for All
Because PUMA is committed to leveraging its platform to promote change and does not accept racism, discrimination, or police brutality, the company created the hashtag #REFORM to combat social injustice. PUMA donates to organisations and projects that promote the Black Lives Matter movement in an effort to empower all Black voices in the workplace.
