Began in 1935, with a small shoe workshop in the heart of the Innviertel region, near Scharding in Upper Austria.
‘Small but refined’ was Josef HOGL’s motto as he started his career as a shoemaker.
HOGL, along with comfort shoe brands GANTER and HASSIA, has since been incorporated as a subsidiary of the family-owned
LORENZ Shoe Group AG. Principal owner Joseph Lorenz, his son Patrick Lorenz and co-owner Gerhard Bachmaier place the
greatest value on the fact that HOGL has remained in family hands since it was founded.
The firm’s continuing globalisation and expansion of export markets in Europe and Russia can be attributed to the visionary
thinking and entrepreneurial spirit of Joseph Lorenz.
