The Deutscher Turner-Bund - DTB - (German Gymnastics Federation) was founded in Hanau in 1848. It’s the second largest sports association in Germany (5 million members). Since 2017, KangaROOS has been the „Official Supplier of the DTB” and equips the Turn-Team Deutschland (German Gymnastics Team) with sports shoes.
This close connection led to the consideration of whether a joint Made in Germany project could be an option and the answer was yes! The materials used in gymnastics boxes and mats offer enormous potential to be implemented on a model by our factory in Münchweiler. Also, not to forget the often emotional memories of those who had to come to terms with typical gymnastics events in the childhood, whether in school or recreational sports - be it falls, dusty halls, the smell of the gymnastics equipment, or simply experiencing these activities with others.
