VAUDE stands for respect in all its interaction with others and the nature around us. We have set our sight on becoming Europe’s most environmentally friendly outdoor brand, so that sportsmen and women of today, and those to come can enjoy nature to the fullest. VAUDE’s roots are in mountain sports. Without the mountains, VAUDE wouldn’t be what it is today.
VAUDE has been distributed in the UK for 18 years. With over 150 retail outlets and a number of mail order retailers the entire VAUDE collection is available to all.
For over thirty years VAUDE has stood for excellence in mountain sports and is now one of Europe's leading mountain sports brand names. Today VAUDE is one of the very few privately owned enterprises in the industry that has successfully withstood the trend toward consolidation. The company has achieved continuous growth in the mountain sports, outdoor, bike and sports fashion sectors. 60% of our turnover comes from sales in Germany, 40% comes from exports. VAUDE products are sold world-wide.
Our company is based in Tettnang, between Friedrichshafen and Ravensburg near Lake Constance in southern Germany. About 200 employees and colleagues work here, where we offer a wide variety of apprenticeship and career training programs. This is also where a large part of our research and product development is played out. However VAUDE has a truly international presence and is represented in over 40 countries world wide, with over 1,200 personnel world wide.
