Foundation of Bata Industrials
Founded in the Czech Republic in 1894, Bata was one of the first manufacturers to sell its products all over the world. As early as the 1930s, the company was active in Switzerland, Germany, England, France, Yugoslavia, Poland, India and the Netherlands. This expansion continued, and in the 1960s, 42,000 employees were working in one of Bata’s thousands of shops and many factories. The foundation of this success was our continuous commitment to research and development.
Bata and Safety Footwear
Bata Industrials was founded in the 1970s in response to a specific demand from the market for footwear for professionals. Since then, Bata Industrials has evolved to become a designer, producer and marketer of safety footwear and socks, exclusively targeting the professional end user markets.
