MANAMA, Bahrain--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, Red Wing Shoe Company announced the opening of its first Red Wing Store in Bahrain, located in Sitra, block 606, on the main Highway. Red Wing has been a committed member of the Middle East energy industry for 50 years as a leading provider of safety footwear and personal protective equipment (PPE). This retail expansion brings Red Wing’s customized shopping experience to Bahrain and increases its ability to provide its customers with absolute protection, comfort and durability worldwide.
In the Bahrain Red Wing Store, customers will find Red Wing’s full head-to-toe personal PPE offering including purpose-built footwear that meets or exceeds safety standards such as EN ISO and ASTM, flame resistant work wear, safety glasses, gloves and other PPE accessories.
“Over the last five decades, Red Wing Shoe Company has grown to become a top provider of head-to-toe solutions for the Middle East energy industry,” said Paul Olson, managing director, eastern hemisphere for Red Wing Shoe Company. “The store opening in Bahrain once again proves our commitment to the industrial workers of the region, leveraging our second-to-none service level and expertise to outfit each customer with the specific needs of their work environment and purpose.”
The new store will create several new employment opportunities and is a result of Red Wing’s collaboration with Kooheji Industrial Safety, a Red Wing partner for 20 years and the Kingdom of Bahrain’s leading PPE distributor with over 50 years trading history. At the store, visitors will enter an industrial work-themed atmosphere that provides comfort for customers and connects them with the core principals of Red Wing Shoe Company – safety, performance and service. An area of the store will be exclusively devoted to the government owned Bahrain Petroleum Company (Bapco) and its employees, a Red Wing customer.
In addition to its new store in Bahrain, Red Wing recently opened its second store in Dubai, and has a longstanding office and distribution center in the United Arab Emirates. To facilitate growth and ensure the highest level of service for its worldwide customer base, the company has offices and distribution centers in the United States, United Kingdom, Norway and the Netherlands.
