Red Wing opens first Bahrain store

Red Wing Shoe Company has announced the opening of its first Red Wing Store in Bahrain, located in Sitra on the main highway.

Red Wing has been a committed member of the Middle East energy industry for 50 years as a leading provider of safety footwear and personal protective equipment (PPE).

This retail expansion brings Red Wing’s customised shopping experience to Bahrain and increases its ability to provide its customers with absolute protection, comfort and durability worldwide.

In the Bahrain Red Wing Store, customers will find Red Wing’s full head-to-toe personal PPE offering including purpose-built footwear that meets or exceeds safety standards such as EN ISO and ASTM, flame-resistant work wear, safety glasses, gloves and other PPE accessories.

“Over the last five decades, Red Wing Shoe Company has grown to become a top provider of head-to-toe solutions for the Middle East energy industry,” said Red Wing Shoe Company managing director (Eastern hemisphere) Paul Olson.

“The store opening in Bahrain once again proves our commitment to the industrial workers of the region, leveraging our second-to-none service level and expertise to outfit each customer with the specific needs of their work environment and purpose.”

The new store is believed to create a number of new employment opportunities and is a result of Red Wing’s collaboration with Kooheji Industrial Safety, a Red Wing partner for 20 years and Bahrain’s leading PPE distributor with over 50 years’ trading history.

At the store, visitors will enter an industrial work-themed atmosphere that provides comfort for customers and connects them with the core principles of Red Wing Shoe Company – safety, performance and service.

An area of the store will be exclusively devoted to the government-owned Bapco and its employees, a Red Wing customer.

Red Wing also recently opened its second store in Dubai and has a longstanding office and distribution centre in the UAE.

The company has offices and distribution centres in the US, the UK, Norway and the Netherlands.

Visit the new Red Wing Store in Sitra, from 8am to 5pm.
