flip*flop office

Our historical company headquarters NEUFFER AM PARK, a former shoe factory from the Wilhelminian era, not only represents a very unique office but also contributes to the revival of the shoe tradition that resides in Pirmasens. In 1894 the Neuffer am Park was built in the German shoe city. In 1990 our CEO and owner Bernd Hummel bought the neglected building, applied a preservation order and initiated the renovation work step by step.

Tradition meets trend: listed facades from the 19th century and a light-flooded, modern office design on the inside. The ideal creative location for us with an environment that has the highest level of craftsmanship and know-how in the shoe business. In addition to our offices, one of our showrooms and our FACTORY SHOP is located in Neuffer am Park.
