Coats Footwear France solidifies business integration

Coats Footwear announced that its two French operating entities, Rhenoflex France and Texon France are merging to create a new combined business that will be known as Coats Footwear France.

Effective from July 1, 2024, this change is a key final step in the creation of Coats Footwear France, underscoring Coats’ ongoing commitment to enhancing its products and services.

While the creation of Coats Footwear France is predominantly a legal change, there will be clear benefits for the company’s customers, suppliers and partners.

With associates now working for a single business entity, Coats Footwear France will be able to:

  • Further streamline day-to-day activities and decision-making
  • Leverage synergies across its operations and supply chain
  • Enhanced communication as one cohesive team dedicated to serving customers
  • Operate faster and more efficiently – to better serve customers
  • Simplify financial reporting and compliance on regulatory matters

Robert Grueneberg, President at Coats Footwear France, said: “We are pleased to announce the formation of Coats Footwear France. This important legal step represents a significant milestone for the Coats Footwear team. Combining our strengths legally, to create a single robust foundation for sustainable growth, will enable us to drive innovation, expand our reach and ultimately better serve our customers, suppliers and partners.”
