Always by your side since 1937
More than 80 years ago, the young Eduard Schmidt was inspired by the desire to produce blouses in which women would move with the greatest ease. The idea became reality thanks to a good mix of textile know-how and sure fashion sense. The growing ERFOlg became ERFO. Eduard's son Günter Schmidt took over the management in 1977 and continued the success story, especially by opening up international sales markets. Hauke Schmidt, the grandson of the founder, now leads the company in the third generation. He is responsible for the modern face of ERFO today. But the basic conviction has remained: wearable, life-affirming fashion for women who want to be themselves.
