Salomon was founded in 1947 as a family business by Francois Salomon, his wife Jeanne, and their son Georges. Salomon was founded in the South East French city of Annecy. The brand started making skis in a small workshop and later became known worldwide for their ski bindings. The production of hiking boots started in 1992 and this delighted even more adventure lovers. The passion for outdoor sports and new technologies has driven Salomon and still does.
