Völkl skis

Since 1914, Völkl has manufactured skis in Straubing, Germany, a Bavarian town about one and a half hour's drive northeast of Munich. In the 1960s, Sears started distributing Völkl in North America under the Othmar Schneider and Sears brands. Though they recently built a state-of-the-art production facility in Straubing, the original factory is still in use as the Völkl World Logistics Center.

Völkl in professional tennis

Völkl tennis rackets were used by players such as Boris Becker, Michael Stich, Sergi Bruguera, and Petr Korda. The list of current players includes Stefanie Voegele, Liezel Huber, and many Senior and Junior players on tour. Volkl Tennis is no longer a part of Volkl Skis and the manufacturing takes place in an entirely different factory.

Marker Volkl, USA

Located in New Hampshire, Marker Volkl, USA is the importer and distributor of Völkl products in the United States, and a subsidiary of Völkl International. Jarden Action Sports owns both Marker Volkl, USA and Völkl International. K2 and LINE were acquired by the Jarden Corporation in 2007.
