As the shirt brand with the most dynamic development throughout Europe in recent years, OLYMP has been setting international standards in the world of fashion since 1951.
In doing so, OLYMP stands for uncompromisingly high quality fabrics and workmanship, outstanding attributes in wear and care, as well as an excellent price-performance ratio and of course all this for a convincing fashion statement.
Due to a consistent adherence to the company’s principles, OLYMP has been able to develop progressively and maintain a steady increase in turnover at a time of declining sales in the clothing industry. Between the years 2000 and 2010, the companies turnover logged more than trebled to about 142 million euros. OLYMP is by now not only a market leader in Germany, but is also en route to become globally an increased strong active company.
In particular the non-iron and wrinkle-free premium shirt "OLYMP Luxor" classically cut or as slim line and made of 100 per cent cotton is enjoying increasing popularity. Also easy-care casual shirts and polo shirts too form a part of the product portfolio. The four extensive collections each year are complemented by high-quality ties made from pure silk, which in colour and design are coordinated tone-in-tone with the business shirts and thus make a one-stop complete look. In addition, the ties are finished using Nano-Technology and thereby provides increased protection against dirt and stains. Consequently, the comfort for the wearer is significantly enhanced. For the autumn season of 2011, OLYMP presented the first discrete high-quality men's knitwear programme, which includes pullovers, slipovers, cardigans and so on for business and leisure.
OLYMP is convinced of its business obligation and takes social responsibility in terms of global production operations very seriously. The ambition is always to ensure that the products are not only ecologically beyond reproach and of high quality, but are also manufactured in socially oriented establishments under humane conditions. Therefore, the international OLYMP partner firms for clothing production have already acquired the most widely recognised global certificate of qualification, the SA 8000:2001. Moreover, as a result of its membership in the Business Social Compliance Initiative (BSCI), OLYMP is committed to observing social standards in the manufacture of its products.
OLYMP has an export ratio of 32 percent and today has a presence in more than 40 countries around the globe. These include Belgium, Bosnia and Herzegovina, China, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Greece, Great Britain, Ireland, Croatia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Austria, Poland, Romania, Russia, Switzerland, Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, the Czech Republic and Hungary.
