Our story began in 1990 when stiff, heavy chainsaw boots were the norm. This is the point where Arbortec challenged the status quo and introduced a dual-density range of footwear. In other words, this means a rubber midsole and nitrile rubber outsole are moulded to the upper. These two processes combined produce lightweight, comfortable and waterproof footwear.
Following the success of the footwear, the company was ready for a brand relaunch. In 2010 Arbortec moved into the second generation of ownership. This brought in a change of direction for the brand based on our experience, knowledge and expertise of outdoor pursuits.
We believe in bringing the finest materials and innovative designs together to create the best protective footwear, clothing, and accessories within the industry.
MANUFACTURING - THE ARBORTEC FACTORY
At the end of 2016, we opened our very own factory in Portugal, allowing us to take full control over the manufacturing process of our products. This enabled us to make changes to products quickly, ensure the finished article has been made to the highest standards and be able to guarantee delivery dates to our distributors and customers. We are incredibly excited about what the future brings and the introduction of our new innovative products to the industry.
Our values are at the heart of everything we do. Setting out to produce clothing under our control ensured that our values were strengthened. High quality, handmade garments ensure the user is always safe and protected.
