By expanding an existing factory, the business was consistently expanded and with the invention of the “blue footbed” a real innovation on the Brought to market.

Since it adapted to the physiognomy and movements of the wearer, the products were considered the best in the field and were not only marketed in Germany, but in various European countries. Carl Birkenstock then developed the famous flexible cork insert as the main component of the insole. New Birkenstock shoes were presented to the buyers and Birkenstock was able to secure a good position in the shoe market. In 2013, the Birkenstock Group was created by merging the previously existing individual companies, which is divided into the individual segments of sales, service and manufacturing.

After the move in 2014, the company headquarters was split up: the administration is located in Rahms, while the production sites are in Hesse, Saxony and Rhineland-Palatinate and the logistics are still at the former main site in Vettelschoss.
