The Company History:

From its Foundation to Present Day.

Since 1992, our company has continuously progressed, from small beginnings
to the worldwide expansion as Fortdress Group GmbH. Our motto "We keep you going" is what drives us,
to provide innovative products and help you to keep going.

Foundation of the Company.

Mr. Matthias Lauber founded the company in Ladestraße under the name "Matthias Lauber e.K." With a clear focus on quality and customer satisfaction, he laid the groundwork for what would later become a flourishing company.

Relocation to Chemieweg with First Company Logo.

With the first company logo and a new name "Fortdress", the company moved to Chemieweg 4. The idea for the name came from Mrs. Lauber - because the building looked like a tower. From there, products from the brands Birkenstock and Eibe were sold in the region.

Focus on Cold Protection Clothing
and Partnership with Flexitog.

With the move to Eisenhüttenstraße, there was a change in direction from the previous distribution of general protective equipment for the local industry to a focus on cold protection clothing for the food industry. With the realignment, the logo also evolved and Fortdress became a partner & dealer of Flexitog UK for the DACH region.

Relocation due to Growth and
Further Logo Development.

Due to the nationwide acquisition of various customers, the company grew significantly and relocated to the next location "in der Steinwiese". This also brought about further development of the company logo.

Fortdress Own Brand: Start of
Developing Own Products.

The establishment of the Fortdress own brand in 2011 marked a milestone in the company's history. By developing their own products, Fortdress was able to respond even more specifically to the needs of its customers. This step was an expression of the commitment to innovation and quality.

Change of Name to Fortdress
International KG & Relocation.

Due to strong expansion, the company moved to Seelbacher Weg. In the same year, Fortdress was renamed Fortdress International KG. This renaming reflected Fortdress's increasing international orientation and underscored the company's global aspirations.

Emergence and Unfolding
of the Fortdress Group Umbrella Brand.

In 2020, the Fortdress Group was developed as the umbrella brand of the company and officially launched in the following year, 2021. This was followed by the renaming to Fortdress Group GmbH. As experts in workwear, we understand the specific requirements of our customers in the food industry and logistics. Our stated goal is to become the leading partner for occupational safety in this sector, and we are tirelessly working towards this goal. Our new corporate identity reflects this goal, while our product brand "Fortdress" continues to exist.

Department Strengthen Our Service Quality.

Due to international growth, we leased an additional external warehouse with 500 pallet spaces near our headquarters in 2022. We have also opened another warehouse in the UK, including a finishing department, to be able to supply our British customers even faster and guarantee next-day delivery.
