Herzogen­aurach

The PUMA corporate Headquarters are located in Herzogenaurach or Herzo, as we like to call our hometown, located in southern Germany close to Nuremberg.  Every day, more than 1000 colleagues walk through our doors, ready to push sport and fashion forward.  And if you’re lucky, you just might run into Usain Bolt or Antoine Griezmann walking down the hall.
