Bata Industrials is part of the Bata Shoe Organisation, the world’s largest shoe manufacturer, and is the market leader in the Benelux for industrial shoes. Bata Industrials has production facilities throughout the world. The company headquarters is located in Best, the Netherlands, where it employs a staff of 170. Bata Industrials’ facility in Best produces over 700,000 pairs of safety shoes and 1,000,000 million pairs of socks annually. Bata Industrials has a progressive Research and Development department and has certified testing areas at its disposal.
Research is the foundation of our market success. We are continuously working on new cutting edge technological developments for footwear and hosiery. This helps us meet the latest market requirements and ever evolving industrial working environments.
Our development strategy is based on three elements:
- Overall product performance
- The practical experience of users
- Technical progress
Each and every detail of Bata Industrials’ products undergoes a lengthy development process, described in detail in the Technology section of this site. This strategy helps ensure that our products meet the highest safety standards. Our efforts are aimed at footwear beyond safety: we put comfort and health in an equally prominent position.
Bata Industrials is devoted to the highest level of quality management systems. This is reflected in our ISO 9001 accreditation initially awarded in 1996.
We are convinced that all of our business relations play a vital role in managing the chain of quality. Suppliers, distributors, our own staff of course and – last but not least – our customers. We have therefore deployed a comprehensive total quality philosophy that affects our organisation, processes, activities and interests. This enables us to maintain and continuously improve our high level of performance.
