RIMOWA, Global Leader of High Quality Luggage, Joins the LVMH Group



PARIS–LVMH Moet Hennessy Louis Vuitton (Paris:MC.PA; OTC:LVMUY) Dieter Morszeck, grandson of the founder of RIMOWA, has chosen to partner with the LVMH Group with a view to preserving the spirit of excellence and the long-term vision that have inspired his family and the company’s employees for over a century.


This Smart News Release features multimedia. View the full release here:  


Under the terms of the agreement, Dieter Morszeck will sell a majority stake to the LVMH Group while continuing to hold equity in the business and maintaining his leadership functions.


RIMOWA will then become the first German Maison of the LVMH Group.


Upon completion of the transaction, Alexandre Arnault will be appointed co-CEO of RIMOWA.


Founded in Cologne in 1898, luggage and leather goods maker RIMOWA has become one of the quintessential houses for innovative, high-quality luggage over the course of the twentieth century. The business has built its reputation designing lightweight and easy to use luggage and RIMOWA suitcases today serve as the industry benchmark for German quality.


Since its creation by Paul Morszeck, innovation has been at the heart of RIMOWA’s strategy. In 1937, his son Richard launched the first aluminium suitcase available on the market. The aluminium structure comprising parallel grooves makes the luggage instantly recognisable and has played its part in building the reputation of RIMOWA among a sophisticated international clientele. His son Dieter designed the first waterproof metal case in 1976, since which time RIMOWA suitcases have become the travelling companion of choice for the greatest filmmakers, photographers and journalists.
