Founded in 2004 by Sam Maloigne, and located in Beauvais, Samshield was originally specialized in the design and distribution of horse-riding helmets.
Thanks to its strong brand image and international footprint (more than 80% of sales are generated outside of France), Samshield has successfully undertaken product diversification by launching a line of technical apparel. Samshield products are now distributed in more than 700 stores around the world.
In addition to broaden its products portfolio, the company aims to accelerate its development on the Northern American market.
