Hermes-OTTO International emerged as a separate company from the purchasing organisation founded by the Otto Group in 1966. Its main task was originally to purchase goods exclusively for Otto Group companies in the world’s major markets.
Following the reorganisation of the company in 2008, Hermes-OTTO International was opened to third-party B2B customers serving as a worldwide procurement and services partner.
With 1,400 employees and 20 offices in all key sourcing markets, Hermes-OTTO International has built up a network of top-quality suppliers in 50 years of business. Products are primarily sourced from the clothing, accessories, lingerie, shoes as well as the home living segments. The package is completed by further innovative services such as Quality and Audit Services as well as Supply Chain Services.
Hermes-OTTO International and its suppliers have commited themselves to comply with international social and environmental standards.
