Our in house SATRA accredited labaratory, TEKNOTEKS, allows us to test all raw materials as well as finished and semi finished goods. Leading to an overall excellent product. We support this in an ISO 9001:2008 environment and as members of SATRA to audit and certify our products.


Alongside this we have the latest in 3D footwear design software which means we can rapidly design and develop new products. Our investment in CAD/CAM material cutting and computerised stitching enables us to stay at the leading edge of technology and superiority.


We are specialists in injection sole technology where we produce combinations of Rubber, PU and TPU for the Goliath footwear range and directly inject onto the uppers for the strongest possible bond. Dual Density injected Rubber sole technology is particularly suited to the harsh working environments and is an asset to our emergency services and specialist industrial rnage where conditions are especially dangerous.


To accompany our DDR technology we also partner world leading brand technologies such as GORE-TEX® and D3O® to make our footwear comfortable, durable and protective for the job. The intensive testing in partnering GORE-TEX® ensures the quality is consistent throughout the manufacturing process.
