For its business in China, Vaude reports stable sales at €2.5 million for 2011. Jan Lorch, sales director, explains that last year was a period of transition when it switched from its own operations to Kailas, one of the country's leading brands that acts as well as licensee and distributor of Vaude there. Lorch explained that there were some delivery problems at that time, but sales are up by 30 percent for the current summer season and deliveries will be on time for the coming winter season.
