For the first time in its 80 year existence, Skellerup’s legendary Gumboots are now readily available in the UK and Europe. Over the past few years, Skellerup Footwear has been successfully rolling-out a global expansion plan and after posting growing sales in the USA has now turned its attention to Europe, opening a distribution centre and sales office in the UK at the beginning of 2015.
For years, European wellington consumers have been going to great lengths to get their hands on the classic Red Bands and the advanced Quatro boots often shipping these from retailers in the brands homeland, New Zealand. Sales manager Ben Trueman said “it’s testimony to Skellerup’s reputation for longevity and comfort that consumers have been striving to get these fantastic gumboots, but having now opened-up access to the range, customers can get stocks in as little as 24 hours” Skellerup Footwear Europe will be stocking boots from a number of ranges in their warehouse with Agricultural Gumboots, advanced Quatro Safety products which are ideal for utilities and heavy industrial use, Fire Fighter’s boots including the chemical resistant Firefighter Extreme and chainsaw protective Euro Forester boots certified to the very latest European Standards.
We have now made it easier than ever to try the latest innovations in rubber footwear technology. Over the coming months expect to see Skellerup products popping up in shops and at trade counters near you. Sales Manager Ben Trueman said “The uptake and response to the Skellerup Range has been fantastic and both consumers and retailers are quickly realising that our boots offer a combination of fit, comfort and durability that is not easy to find in professional boots these days. I am looking forward to seeing the brand grow over the coming years into the market leader we know it can be.”
