Walbusch: comfortable men’s wear by mail order

Get the Flash Player to see this video.



When the company was founded by Walter Busch in 1934, goods left the house by parcel already. And that is still the case until today. But apart from that, almost everything has changed since then. If during the first years razor blades and shavers were mailed, today it is a selected assortment of clothing of pronounced quality for sophisticated customers. Men’s shirts with its patented “collar without button” are both trademark and company philosophy; they symbolize our claim to offer especially comfortable, and at the same time classically correct men’s wear (also made to measure). Typically for Walbusch, are its small-format catalogues, which are distributed to around 700 thousand regular customers.

More than 1.8 million parcels were sent from Solingen to customers all over Germany, Austria and Switzerland in 2004 and generated turnover sales of more 200 million Euros. The newly built dispatch depot for hanging clothes measuring 25,000 square metres, which started operating in 1999 at the company’s original seat, is proof that company owner Thomas Busch, who manages the firm in second generation, is clearly committed to the business location of Solingen offering meanwhile approx. 570 jobs. Additional expansion plans are being worked out.




Walbusch Mail Order Catalogues.

 

The latest business activities include Avena Health Care Mail Order founded in October 1999. The product range comprises preventing/alleviating products all around typical “widespread diseases”, like feet problems, back pain or insomnia. In 2002, two ideal traditional brands joined in partnership: Klepper and Walbusch. A special catalogue is published regularly for functional clothing “Klepper – for all weathers”. Another meanwhile regularly appearing newly developed catalogue targets especially women with the slogan “Fashion from woman to woman”. Its collection features above all practical alternatives for combinations and a great variety of well-fitting sizes.

As additional business platform, the Internet completes the activities of the Walbusch Group: www.walbusch.de, www.avena.de, www.klepper-online.de.
