Scholl footwear, which has until now been based in Mannheim, has moved its headquarters to Ludwigshafen am Rhein. Close to the highway and main train station, the company has taken over a villa belonging to the Benckiser enterprise, which took over Scholl in the beginning of 2011. The new space allows for ample room to hold a showroom and various events. Eckhard Muck, company country manager for Germany, Austria and Switzerland, stated: “We now have much more space for our team and for our clients. The Mannheim space was beginning to feel to small, and moreover, the new interior has a more modern appeal that much better suits our brand.”
