While developing and improving glove engineering for decades in 1972 the needs of professional alpine athletes are finally met. Son Gebhard Reusch joins forces and Reusch enters the industry with a collection of specially designed winter gloves and starts expanding activities in the market. Just one year later in a close co-operation with German goalkeeper legend Sepp Maier, Gebhard Reusch develops the first goalkeeper glove in history.
