Völkl (German pronunciation: [fœlkl]) is a sports equipment manufacturer based in Germany. It is a subsidiary of the Jarden Corporation. Initially it manufactured skis, but has extended its line to snowboards, outerwear, and tennis gear. The American branch is located in West Lebanon, New Hampshire along with its wholly owned binding manufacturer, Marker.
Since 1923, Völkl has manufactured skis in Straubing, Germany, a Bavarian town about an hour's drive north of Munich. In the 1960s, Sears started distributing Völkl in North America under the Othmar Schneider and Sears brands. Though they recently built a state-of-the-art production facility in Straubing, the original factory is still in use as the Völkl World Logistics Center.
Völkl tennis racquets were used by players such as Boris Becker, Sergi Bruguera, and Petr Korda. The list of current players includes Stefanie Voegele, Liezel Huber, and many Senior and Junior players on tour.
Located in New Hampshire, Völkl Sport America is the importer and distributor of Völkl products in the United States, and a subsidiary of Völkl International. K2 Corporation of Carlsbad, California owns both Völkl Sport America and Völkl International. K2 was acquired by the Jarden Corporation in 2007.
