The origins of ESDA Strumpfwerke GmbH go back to the year 1886. At that time, Robert Götze and his wife founded the ROGO Strumpfwerke (Robert Götze Oberlungwitz).

From 1945 to 1989, ESDA rose to become a supplier of all kinds of hosiery products for the entire Eastern European economic area.

After reunification in 1989, ESDA was reprivatized and repositioned for the future. The company has been part of the Daun Group since 2006. As a specialist for private label production in the fine and knitted hosiery segment, ESDA produces more than 60 million hosiery articles.
