The Bavarian traditional company from Mainburg was founded in 1948 and has developed at a rapid time to a global player. After starting out in the field of fire fighting boots HAIX now supplies armies around the world , equipping special units and is the first choice when it comes to high-quality high-tech footwear.
HAIX stands for Xaver Haimerl. Over 60 years ago, the founder of the company added the X from his first name to the first three letters of his last name and established the Haimerl Xaver shoe factory – or HAIX for short. Based in the Bavarian town of Mainburg, the company quickly makes a name for itself by selling hiking and work boots under various brand names.
At the main site in Mainburg, plans for a modern new head office come to fruition.
HAIX is set to revolutionize boots for firefighters for the second time in the shape of the FIRE HERO – the safest fire fighting boots ever. The product is premiering at the 2010 INTERSCHUTZ trade show.
The company invests 4,7 million € in the expansion of the head office in Mainburg.
