ORTLIEB Outdoor Equipment - Manufacturing
Made in Germany – self-evidently for us!
ORTLIEB products are Made in Germany. Only here we can constantly optimise and supervise quality manufacturing. Therefore, 90% of all processes are run inhouse at ORTLIEB in Heilsbronn. This has been our way for nearly 30 years.
This focus on quality is the basis for the development and production of waterproof, high value equipment that supports our dedicated and enthusiastic outdoor customers..
Most of our suppliers and development partners are also near by. We can respond quickly to demand and shorten lead-times to market while reducing our carbon footprint. The production of bike panniers, backpacks, dry bags and many other products that we show you in this catalogue is implemented in Heilsbronn by an experienced and well established team. The „Ortlieb campus“ is comprised of engineers, designers, and even mechanical construction, all together under one roof with warehousing and distribution. All departments work hand in hand, keeping the communication direct and personal, allowing decisions to be made quickly.
The fact that the most important processes take place in our company allows us to guarantee that each step is performed as ecological as possible. Constant optimizing allows minimizing material waste. Our plastic materials are separated into 5 segments in order to ensure optimal recycling. Our administration uses recycled content paper only, and our printed matter is fsc certified without exception.
The "Sports Made in Germany"-logo stands for an initiative by the BSI (Federal Association of German Sport Article Industry). It defines German sport article companies that commit themselves to Germany as production location.
