In 1919, the brothers Rudolf and Adolf Dassler founded a shoe factory in Herzogenaurach, near Nuremberg. The siblings soon found success and provided their shoes to many athletes on the German team in the 1920s and 1930s. This helped them achieve their breakthrough nationally and internationally. In 1948 a dispute divided the brothers and they went their separate ways. Rudolf Dassler then founded his own company: Puma. Under the motto: "Forever Faster", Puma is one of the most successful sports shoe manufacturers today.
