INDO has decided to stop selling its lenses in the German market as part of a decision to reorganize its activities in the markets where it has not reached critical mass. Thus its German subsidiary, Werner Schulz, has gone into insolvency proceedings, a process that will involve restructuring measures through a court-appointed receiver. INDO will cooperate by servicing German clients who have already ordered its lens products. The decision doesn't affect sales in Germany of INDO frames and sunglasses, which are sold through a distributor, Crea Team. It doesn't affect sales of its machinery and equipment, which are handled by Schöne. Werner Schulz takes its name from the man who founded the company in 1949, putting out a bi-focal lens. In 2000, INDO acquired a 25 percent stake in Werner Schulz, which by then had its own line of progressive lenses, to help penetrate the German market. It raised its stake to 100 percent in 2005 and appointed a new general manager, David Ferran, last October.
