Footwear care products have had a long tradition at melvo. The footwear manufacturer Salamander started the production and distribution of footwear care products under the Salamander brand as early as 1920. In 1988 these activities were consolidated in the form of a new company, melvo GmbH, which was managed as a subsidiary of Salamander AG until the end of 2003.
During this time melvo developed into a leading manufacturer and distributor of high-quality footwear and leather care products and also of footwear accessories such as inner soles, shoe trees and shoe laces.
With its brands Salamander, Woly and Coxy, melvo is now represented in shoe shops throughout the world.
