Weyco Group, Inc announced that it has acquired the Umi brand, a children's footwear line, from Umi, LLC.

The Umi brand was started in 2004 by Mark Kohlenberg who previously ran the Elefanten USA children's footwear business for 14 years. The Umi brand offers customers European inspired design, high quality materials and unique styling at an attainable price point.

"We are excited to announce the addition of Umi to the Weyco portfolio of brands," stated Tom Florsheim, Chairman and CEO of Weyco Group, Inc. "We are also very pleased that Mark Kohlenberg will be joining Weyco as President of the Umi Brand and believe Mark's stewardship supported by Weyco's infrastructure should provide significant opportunities to grow the Umi brand in the marketplace."

"This is a great moment for the Umi brand of children's footwear," said Mark Kohlenberg. "Weyco's scale, reputation and international presence provide significant upside for future growth of Umi. Positioning Umi in the portfolio of Weyco brands opens new doors for Umi while providing a great opportunity to work with Weyco's sales force and distribution operations."
