|We can trace our roots back to 1950 when Howard Head, the inventor of the first metal ski, founded the company. The Tyrolia bindings and Mares diving brands were added in the 1970’s and more recently the Penn balls and Dacor diving brands were acquired during the 1990’s.
Head NV has been under its present management since 1996 and was listed on the New York Stock Exchange and the Vienna Stock Exchange in September 2000.
Our current operations are organized into four divisions: Winter Sports, Racquet Sports, Diving and Licensing. Within these divisions we have created or acquired some of the most recognizable brands in the sporting goods market
We hold leading positions in all of our product markets and our products are endorsed by some of the world’s top athletes including Bode Miller, Andre Agassi, Gustavo Kuerten, Marat Safin, Juan Carlos Ferrero, Johann Grugger and Maria Riesch.
