In 1971 a man named Jack Mizrahi had a dream: “How can I make footwear that would be affordable to the people that really needed them?” Armed only with a couple of second-hand sewing machines and a guiding principle to “stick with what you do best”, he set out to make that dream a reality.
After starting out in a two room facility in West Babylon, Jack quickly became the “go to” person in the popular priced slipper market and by 1988 was a presence in every shop in America where value was a virtue.
With success came a need to expand, both manufacturing facilities and also overseas. Jack’s son Charles Mizrahi was brought into the family business to help spearhead the next step forward into overseas production.
Under Charles' guidance, Wiesner has grown exponentially and now manufactures products in over 20 countries around the world.
Today, Wiesner employs over a thousand people worldwide and prides itself on its ability to meet the demands of the full spectrum of American retailing, from specialty shops to mass market.
With its combination of both private label and licenses, Wiesner is able to provide dynamic product design along with great pricing for its myriad of customers both here and around the world.
As we proceed into the next millennium, Wiesner Products is positioned to be in the forefront of the ever changing retail environment, and we invite all of you along for what promises to be a most exciting ride into the future!
Following in his father’s footsteps, Charles Mizrahi joined Wiesner Products in 1987. Now at the helm, he has successfully built a company with over 18 product category divisions. Following the motto of, “Communication, Honesty, Delivery and Quality,” Charles strives to install these values at Wiesner. He takes pride in being very hands on with all of his divisions. His key to a successful company includes both his “open door” policy and his involvement from conception to execution. Charles’ passion for his family business has set the tone here at Wiesner Products for a great work environment that exudes throughout the company.
