When did you join EOCA?

KEEN joined EOCA in March 2007.

Why our company is involved with EOCA?

At KEEN we always look for best ways to put our values in motion. We see EOCA as a strategic partner and therefore we committed ourselves to being a sustaining member and decided this year to become a Summit Member. With activities like a yearly Sandal Sale at Outdoor Friedrichshafen and by integrating EOCA in a lot of our events, we actively try to spread the word and inspire other people and brands.
