Our company

In 1978, our CEO and managing partner, René Häusser, founded the former René Häusser e.K. as a registered merchant in the Hessian city of Hanau. In 2015, the company’s name, which had changed to Häusser Europe OHG, became UNITED BRANDS 24 GmbH.


United Brands is more than just a company name. It not only sums up the diversity and range of our prestigious licensed and own brands but is also an expression of our corporate philosophy.

A fair and cooperative relationship with our employees, trading partners, service providers, suppliers and manufacturers is paramount to our company.


High-quality leather goods, luggage and accessories without compromise. Transparency, consistency and trust through sustainable single-source process control. Design, product development, production, sales and service are 100% our responsibility.

We manage our brands from our headquarters in Hanau and, in parallel, from each respective production facility on site. As a company, we are aware of our responsibility towards the environment and consumers worldwide and act accordingly.


As a partner of the German and international trade, we develop successful private label and brand concepts. We are a diversified company, positioned wherever our customers look for us.

Our main distribution channels are leather goods and textile retailers, department stores, wholesalers and retail, online retailers, premium retailers and television home shopping.
