• History of Argyle Perfomance Workwear

We've grown from a small family business to a market leader.

Argyle Performance Workwear began in 1976 from a small family business in Hawera, Taranaki, retailing workwear and footwear. Our directors established the wholesale division in 1985 - both divisions continued to grow before the retail division was sold in the early 2000’s.

Argyle Performance Workwear has grown and developed into a leading supplier of Safety Workwear and Footwear to Safety Resellers. With over 40 years industry experience, we have used this experience and knowledge to create leading brands and products which have set a benchmark in safety, innovation, endurance and wearability.

In November 2019 Argyle Performance Workwear joined the Paramount Safety Products family - another family owned and operated business with a commitment to getting workers home safe.

Our head office is still located in the small town of Hawera and we supply our New Zealand designed products to customers through our network of resellers across New Zealand and Australia.
