Acrobatics at work - Action-packed interpretation of the world of work

Curtain up for our autumn campaign “stretch your limits”. An ensemble of the finest acrobats presents the new e.s.dynashield stretch clothing in a breath-taking performance. The choreography arranged for this commercial reflects the previously unknown flexibility of movement and pleasant comfort of products in this new collection.

DURABLE AND DYNAMIC - bXeric® - the thread makes it possible

Over the past few months our development team has been working intensely on designing a material that is very wear-resistant, offers flexibility of movement and is very pleasant to wear. The result is the material bXeric® double weave used to make the products of our new e.s.dynashield collection.

Hard on the outside, soft on the inside – the special mix of polyamide and elastane and the unique double weave technology are the secret ingredients of the material. For instance, the outside of the material is extremely durable, whilst the inside is pleasantly soft on the skin.

bXeric® double weave - ideally suited for tradesmen and women who move and lot and are constantly up and down on their knees.

Whether it is via customer service, quality assurance or the workwearstores®, at exhibitions or through social media, we regularly receive customer feedback about our products personally, by phone or in writing. We treat this feedback very seriously and use it for further deliberations.


Our shoe development team maintains a permanent dialogue with users. We develop concepts for new products based on customer feedback and our own ideas. And we implement these ideas in cooperation with our long-standing partners. One example of this are our new S3 safety shoes Cebus mid and Cebus low.

Fresh colours, fast developments based on customer wishes - in recent years we have invested heavily in the development of new shoes. To meet the wishes of our customers and the growing demand even more quickly, we have installed a new sole machine together with our Italian partner. This machine enables us to plan production even more flexibly and frees up resources for further sole developments.

The company

We are an owner-operated family company spanning four generations. Together we, Norbert, Steffen and Henning Strauss, head the company, which was founded by our father and our grandfather Engelbert Strauss long time ago. At our location in Biebergemünd / Frankfurt am Main, we employ around 1,100 employees. We are represented by nine separate subsidiaries in Europe and we also serve a large number of international and commercial clients from our company premises in the Rhine-Main area. As a market leader in the field of workwear, we change how entire industries are presented. Our range comprises of professional workwear, accessories and shoes as well as industrial safety.

For some years now, we have been putting our many years of experience and proximity to the market specifically into the expansion of particular collections. Therefore we offer our clients clever in-house developments, from head to toe. Thereby we have high aspirations for the design and function of our products. Based on technological performance value, as well as a sporty character, our products are also increasingly worn outside of the world of work. We distribute our range online, through our catalogue and in separate workwearstores®. We are completely independent and therefore do not publish any company figures.
