1961: Klaus Kennel, grandson of the company founder, joins the company.
1995: The current CEO, shareholder and creative director, Andreas Klautzsch, begins his work at Kennel & Schmenger. He is largely responsible for the brand's "generational shift" toward a fashion-oriented premium label.
2008: The opening of the first concept store was a decisive milestone for the further expansion of the brand's presence.
A company with a long tradition, where craftsmanship and zeitgeist become one.
The production plant in Pirmasens looks back on a long history of shoe production. Kennel & Schmenger is one of the few remaining local manufacturers and also one of the last companies to produce in Germany.
Kennel & Schmenger has been a reliable and credible trading and business partner for generations.
