RIKA: YOUR EXPERT IN CHEMISTRY FOR THE PU BASED SHOE PRODUCTION
The company was founded in December 1997 by the two today´s Managing Partners Dieter Weisenborn and Hans Buse. Whereas Dieter Weisenborn, whom learned the chemistry craftmanship – with a focus on PU – from the ground up, is still responsible personally for the whole product development, his partner, Hans Buse, is taking care for all commercial matters. Both have more than 50 years of branch experience and market knowledge.
The International Shoe Competence Center in Pirmasens, short “ISC”, is a – in this form unique – research and teaching institute, where the whole knowledge around the modern, industrial shoe production is concentrated. Furthermore the ´Deutsche Schuhfachschule´ has rented its rooms there, the whole in immediate neighborhood to the ´PFI´and to the high school campus of Pirmasens (district Husterhöhe).
Footwear Innovation Lab GmbH
Also in the case of the private company Footwear Innovation Lab GmbH, short “F.i.L.” (Pirmasens) we´re talking about a real think tank, where everything turns around a – as far as possible – automized shoe production of the 21st. century. Other focus areas are the fields virtual model making and augmented reality for industrial aplications – amongst others in the PU based (shoe-)production.
