How it all started

United Brands was founded by our CEO René Häusser. He created in 1978 independently René Häusser e.K. and redeemed the licenses and trademark rights beginning with SAMSONITE and MANO.

The final change of company name took place in 2016. In order to underline our wide range of brands portfolio ‘häusser europe’ was transformed into ‘United Brands 24 GmbH’.
