Wayne Safety manufactured its first gumboot in KZN over 80 years ago, starting a long tradition of making superior quality gumboots right here in South Africa. Since our first rubber gumboot rolled off the production line, all our boots are proudly made in SA, and today we export our range of PVC and PU gumboots to over 40 countries across the globe.
Ever since our inception, Wayne has been dedicated to transformation and development in every community in which we work, driving economic empowerment and growth across our beautiful country. To this end, we have forged partnerships with local SMMEs that benefit both parties, creating a network of professional and high-quality local suppliers and distributors.
Our innovative approach to sourcing everything we can – from labour to materials – from local communities and companies has helped boost the economies of the individuals we work with and of the country as a whole. Even our eco-friendly range of general purpose gumboots, made from recycled material in line with our ongoing commitment to sustainability, helps support small South African businesses who collect and sell recyclable materials. In this way, we have established ourselves as part of the history of our great country and continent.
It is a testimony to the wealth of skill and talent in South Africa that Wayne gumboots meet the highest international standards, adhering to the specific safety standards of countries on all 5 major continents. This has allowed us to export our gumboots to over 40 countries worldwide, following international technological innovations and keeping up with the latest trends. And in Africa alone, no other manufacturer on the continent has supplied more industrial and safety gumboots to the African market.
Through our own manufacturing and services, as well as through our suppliers and business partners, Wayne is dedicated to playing our part to drive the South African economy.
