Cheap Puma clothing history
Christoph von wilheml Dassler started work in a shoe factory while his wife Pauline also ran a small laundry firm in the Bavarian town of Herzogenaurach, just 20 kilometres from the city of Nuremberg. Their son Rudolf Dassler after leaving school joined his father at the shoe factory and was then called up to fight in World War 1. On the return of Rudolf, he took a management position at a porcelain factory and later in worked in a leather wholesale business in Nuremberg.
After having enough of working for other people and working away from home all the time Rudolf returned to Herzogenaurach in 1924 to join his younger brother Adolf, nicknamed “Adi” who had founded his own business the same as his father a shoe factory. They named the business Gebruder Dassler Schuhfabrik (Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory). The two of them started their venture in their mothers laundry, but at the same time the electricity suppliers in the town were always unreliable and the brothers had to make their own power up by using a pedal power from a stationary bicycle to run the large equipment that they needed.
With the 1936 Summer Olympics being held that year, Adi drove from Bavaria on the world’s first motorway to the Olympic village carrying a suitcase full of spikes to try and persuade the USA sprinter Jesse Owens to use the. The first sponsorship for an African-American. Owens won four gold medals. This success opened the route for a good reputation Dassler shoes amongst the world’s most famous sportsmen. Letters came from around the world and landed on the two brothers’ desks. Trainers of other national teams were all interested in their shoes. Business boomed and the Brothers’ were selling 200,000 pairs of shows each year before World War II
Cheap Puma clothing company split
Both the brothers joined the Nazi Party, but Rudolf grew closer to the party. During the war a growing rift between the two brothers concluded at a breaking point after a Allied bomb attack in 1943. Adi and his wife climbed into a bomb shelter that Rudolf and his family were already in. Adi had said words referring to the Allied war planes, but Rudolf was convinced that the foul words were aimed at himself and his family. Rudolf was later picked up by the American soldiers and was accused of being a member of the Waffen SS, Rudolf was convinced that his brother Adi had turned him into the forces.
In 1948 both the brothers split their business. Rudi had left the high hill side of the town for the other side of the Aurach River to begin making plans to start up his own sportswear company. It was this split that Adolf did infact starts his own company with his own new name. He used his nickname “Adi” and the first three letters of his last name “Das”, to establish Adidas. Rudolf created a new firm that he called Ruda from “Ru” in Rudolf and “Da” in Dassler.
Rudolf changed its company name to PUMA Schuhfabrik Rudolf Dassler in 1948, and then made it become a public company in 1986 listing it on the Borse Munchen and Frankfurt Stock Exchange.
With the brothers earlier split this led to a divided town. The town was split into a mini Berlin. Brand loyalty became the biggest eye turner for many residents and there were shops, stores, bakers and bars which were unofficially known as the loyal ones to either PUMA or Adidas. The two football clubs each were divided ASV Herzogenaurach wore the three stripes whilst 1 FC Herzogenaurach had the emblem of the jumping cat. Intermarriage was then frowned upon. When handymen came to work at Rudolf’s home, they would wear Adidas shoes on purpose so that when they were noticed by Rudolf he would send them down to the basement to pick out some Puma shoes. Rudolf would give the workers these for free. They never did sort their differences out and even though they are both buried in the same cemetery they are placed at the furthest points away from each other.
In May 1989, Rudolf's sons Armin and Gerd Dassler agreed to sell their 72 percent stake in Puma clothing, to Swiss business Cosa Liebermann SA.
