|The new new Thorogood 120th Anniversary Collection|
Weinbrenner has been a pioneering force in the American footwear industry since beginning operations in 1892 in Milwaukee, Wisc., initiating many of the safety and job-fitted designs that are common today. To commemorate the company’s monumental anniversary, Weinbrenner is rolling out a new Thorogood 120th Anniversary Collection of domestic, rugged footwear. A contemporary version of the Thorogood box design features our all-American stars and stripes and will represent the ever-trusted Thorogood brand moving forward.
“Countless Weinbrenner employees have spent entire careers designing, developing and introducing new footwear to the marketplace. Like Sue and Kris Rehwinkel, sisters with almost 100 years of service, everyone on the Weinbrenner team is part of reinforcing the tradition of quality workmanship,” Miner said.
As “head-coach” and president, Miner looks forward to guiding the company into a new century and is ready for challenges presented by an uncertain economic climate. He’s passionate about making the company even better for all who are part of it, both union members and non-union alike.
“The road ahead looks bold and stealthy for Weinbrenner and our loyal customers who have come to rely on our footwear,” Miner said.
