Wasn't Hein Gericke a German company? Or was it just a "brand name" to look pretty on store fronts?

Many years ago a friend of mine bought a HG motorcycle jacket that was pretty sturdy -- I'd bet he still has it. Don't remember looking at where it was manufactured, though.
It was indeed a German company, quite popular in Belgium also.

They made " low budget" motorcycle gear, both racing leathers and touring ( both leather and textile) but quality was pretty good actually.
When visiting Belgian Championship roadraces early 2000, you saw guys racing in HG one-piece leathers, so must have been good quality.
Somewhere around 2015, lights went out for HG.
