Blackstone's response

While we are sympathetic to the situation of these workers, this factory was owned by a third party – not Jack Wolfskin. Furthermore, Blackstone no longer has any investment in Jack Wolfskin.

Additional background:

  • Jack Wolfskin W never owned this factory
  • Any liabilities as a continuing company would rest with the subsequent owners.  
  • The Workers’ Rights Consortium report notes that Jack Wolfskin, among other brands, is a member of the Fair Wear Foundation, has taken active steps to ensure workers received compensation owed in other cases and has said it is following the bankruptcy process in this case:
