About Us

Trade Workwear & Safety Ltd was established as Kaipara Workwear & Safety in Dargaville, the ‘Kumara Capital' in Northland, New Zealand in 1992.
Our NZ-owned Family Business initially set out to fulfill the needs of the working people of Northland, specializing in footwear, farm and work clothing.
Over the years Kaipara Workwear expanded its range and broadened its customer base. Since our humble beginnings we have evolved to become a major supplier of personal and industrial workwear, uniform & PPE products, as well as corporate image apparel throughout the region and beyond. In 1995 we moved to new premises due to customer demand and growing product lines.
A further 7 years of growth to 2002 necessitated another move this time into our own purpose-built premises which includes an embroidery plant to provide custom branding services for our clients. Shortly after that, we also opened our store in Whangarei to serve the industry in that area.
In 2014 Kaipara Workwear & Safety was re-branded to Trade Workwear & Safety as we expanded into other areas throughout New Zealand.
2020 saw the release of our updated and modern website giving customers instant access to their account pricing & introducing a points reward system, we love rewarding you for buying quality compliant product ensuring your safety into the future.
You deserve to be safe and comfortable all day, every day; so, we have made it our job to provide you with the best value, compliance & service in the NZ market. Our commitment to compliance, innovation and quality is evident throughout our product range and we have formed longstanding partnerships with suppliers both at home and abroad to ensure this continues.
We are committed to continue building experience, strength and innovation into products that will allow you to enjoy your work and return home safe at the end of each day.
