A while ago Ahlers AG filed for Chapter 11 after years of losses. Besides Hugo Boss AG, Ahlers was one of the remaining big suppliers of menswear.
The receiver now sold the portfolio of brands of Ahlers AG.
Pioneer, Otto Kern, Baldessarini – formerly the luxury label of Hugo Boss-, and Pierre Cardin are acquired by the retail company Röther. Röther manages almost 50 fashion stores under the label ‘Modepark’, and sells menswear of the Ahlers brands.
