Tatonka – the bavarian family business 

Tatonka, the Bavarian family business, bears the name of the bison in the Sioux language. This majestic animal symbolises nature, freedom, wilderness and strength - qualities that Tatonka embodies as an outdoor brand and family-run company. Based in Dasing, Bavaria, Tatonka is characterised by a lean organisational structure and flat hierarchies. Andreas Schechinger is the second generation to manage the company, which produces in its own SA8000-certified factories in Vietnam. European manufacturing standards and high social standards are maintained. Sustainability and social responsibility are central elements of Tatonka's corporate philosophy.

Insights into production: The Tatonka Open Factory 

The Tatonka brand is boldly breaking new ground by opening the doors to its own production facilities. In its own SA8000-certified factories in Vietnam, Tatonka products are manufactured according to European production standards and under socially responsible conditions. Tatonka is proud to be the only supplier in the outdoor industry to offer the opportunity to gain an insight into production at Mountech Co. Ltd. through the Open Factory programme. Here the public can experience at first hand how Tatonka creates its equipment. Further information is available at:

Seamless transparency: Traceability by Tatonka 

Since May 2022, Tatonka has been creating a completely new form of transparency with Traceability by Tatonka. Customers now have the opportunity to track every step of the production and transport of their products. Using the online tool (, the serial number of the purchased product and the place of purchase can be used to view the origin of the materials, the entire production and transport route and the mode of transport. This ground-breaking initiative covers Tatonka products from 2016 onwards, and the traceability website presents an interactive world map that visualises supplier information on the materials used and their sustainability certificates. Even the beginning of the business relationship is disclosed. The map tracks the transport of the materials to the Tatonka factory in Vietnam and accompanies the products on their journey to delivery to the end customer.

TATONKA and DIRK ROHRBACH together in the YUKON Territory 

Beginning of the partnership - helping under the sign of the bison. The joint history of TATONKA and Dirk Rohrbach begins with the TATANKA Oyate aid project, which was founded in 2003. The name TATANKA Oyate means ‘buffalo nation’ in the language of the Lakota Sioux Indians. Nowadays, the Sioux are fighting to preserve their identity. The key to this is their language, which was banned for decades and is now spoken by only a few. Together with TATONKA, Tatanka Oyate supports the Lakota Sioux in their fight to preserve their language. Thanks to this commitment, it has been possible to develop textbooks for the Lakota language and finance workshops in recent years.
