The idea was as simple as it was brilliant. Adi Dassler
’s aim was to provide every athlete with the
best possible equipment. It all began in 1920, when Adi Dassler made his first shoes using the fewmaterials available after the First World War. Today, the Adidas product range extends fromfootwear and apparel to accessories for all kinds of different sports.
The Journey
Adidas as earlier mentioned started its operation in 1920 as a small workshop. But its transformationinto a large corporation and become one of the top global brands has a story within.In 1949 Adi Dassler first registered Adidas in the commercial register (Handelsregister) in Fürth (nearHerzogenaurach). The official name of the company
back then was “Adolf Dassler
Sportschuhfabrik”. And then the
enterprise was transformed into a corporation
(“Aktiengesellschaft”) in 1989.
 In 1997, Adidas
acquired the Salomon group, and the company’s name changed to
Adidas-SalomonAG. The Salomon group also included the TaylorMade golf brand. In October 2005, the Salomonbusiness segment, including the related subsidiaries was sold to the Finnish Amer SportsCorporation. The company
changed its legal name to “Adidas AG”. And then
On January 31, 2006,Adidas-Salomon AG acquired Reebok International Ltd. By combining two of the most respected andwell-known brands in the worldwide sporting goods industry, the new Group benefits from a morecompetitive worldwide platform, well-defined and complementary brand identities, a wider range of products, and a stronger presence across teams, athletes, events and leagues. And in June 2006, the
company’s name is changed to A
didas AG.Since the very beginning of Adidas, the corporation, the employees and the organization followed
the three guiding principle of “
To produce the best shoe to serve the needs of the Sport; TO Protect the athlete from Injury, and to make the product durable
” These principles were followed by the
founder Adolf Dassler (the Man who gave Adidas its name) . From the very beginning, a passionateathlete himself, from the very beginning Adi Dassler was in close contact with sports participants andwas always present in person at important sports events. Parallel to the rapid developments insport, Adi Dassler strove to specialize and optimize his products. Adi Dassler was the firstentrepreneur to use sports promotion in order to make the public aware of his innovations. Hestarted using well-known athletes as advertising for his products. And then Aggressive publicitybecame one of the cornerstones of his corporate policy.
