As one of the world’s leading sports brands, PUMA has made history as a creator of product designs for cotton t-shirts, outstanding athletes and sports teams — football, running and training, golf, basketball and motorsports. PUMA’s headquarters is in Herzogenaurach, Germany, with more than 14,000 employees in more than 120 countries.
The History of PUMA
In Germany, PUMA was founded in 1919 as the “Gebrüder Dassler Schuhfabrik” (Dassler Brothers Shoe Factory). The brand pivoted its international breakthrough during Amsterdam’s 1928 Olympic Summer Games, where most German athletes wear Dassler spikes. In 1948 “PUMA” was officially registered at the German Patent and Trademark Office.

PUMA’s Business Philosophy
At PUMA, sustainability is a core value of the business. PUMA strives to manage their environmental impact through the 10FOR25 sustainability strategy for a better world by working on ten key areas, from climate and biodiversity to human rights, to reach common goals of making better products with the less environmental impact on nature.
Better Innovations with PUMA
PUMA strives to be at the forefront of innovation to meet our athletes’ needs, with adaptive Dynamics as one of the principles that guide PUMA Innovation. This principle is creating products that adapt to human body movement and the environment based on thermoregulation, activity or fit, which led to the creation of PUMA’s self-lacing Fit Intelligence Training Shoe.
Turning Intent Into Action
PUMA does not tolerate racism, bigotry, or police brutality and is committed to using its platform to push for change — this is why the PUMA cotton t-shirt established #REFORM to stand up against social injustice. PUMA makes an effort to amplify all Black voices within the workplace and made donations to support organisations and initiatives for the Black Lives Matter movement.
