Bierbaum-Proenen GmbH Co. KG

Bierbaum-Proenen GmbH & Co. KG, a German workwear firm, joined FWF on 1 July 2010.

Brand Performance Check 2016

Bierbaum-Proenen (BP) meets most of FWF’s management system requirements and goes beyond some of them. With 98% of production under monitoring, BP fulfills FWF’s monitoring threshold for affiliates after three years of membership.

BP has a strong sourcing system which is strongly integrated with its implementation of the code. The pricing practice provides the brand an insight on the labour cost per product. Long-term relationships with many suppliers, combined with often high degrees of leverage at the production sites and regular visits to production sites mean BP is in a good position to work on implementation of social standards.

BP has strong systems in place to reduce the risk of excessive overtime, however living wage issues remain a challenge. FWF encourages BP to start a pilot with some of its core suppliers to make steps towards a payment of a living wage in those factories.

Score: 83 Percentage under monitoring: 98% Category: Leader
