In 1891 Tretorn was founded by Henry Dunker in Helsingborg, Sweden, setting the stage for one of the most enduring success stories born from the late industrial revolution. Dunker's devotion to both business and his "extended family" of employees is legendary. Well ahead of his time, he offered his work force free health care and instituted day-care and a kindergarten on-site. Not surprisingly, this foundation of good will and good work continues to bear impressive results.
Rich in heritage, Tretorn's past is important to what the brand is today. From the early days as a tire maker to its glory days as the shoe of choice for avid tennis players, the past provides an authentic framework for everything that defines Tretorn shoes. And it is with this foundation that Tretorn ensures its commitment to high quality rubber manufacturing for generations to come.
