Since 1870, Blundstone has made the toughest, no-nonsense footwear for work and play.
Decades of innovative design and production mean Blundstone now oversees a global supply chain bringing together the best ideas, components and designs to complement a wide range of products - from the iconic elastic-sided boots loved worldwide, to gumboots, lace-up safety footwear for men and women, heavy industrial footwear, school shoes and casual boots.
The organization consists of a highly-integrated group of companies owned and operated by a family, whose history can be traced back to the 1840s: a family that purchased Blundstone Pty Ltd in 1932, amalgamating their footwear manufacturing operations under the Blundstone name.
Despite having grown into one of the world’s most recognizable boot brands, the company remains Tasmanian and retains its family values. In 2000, Blundstone acquired the iconic John Bull brand, which was founded in New Zealand in 1934.
The headquarters are based in Moonah, Tasmania, housing the administration, sales, marketing, communications, quality management, customer service and logistics sections. It's also home to the research and design center and gumboot factory, with the capacity to manufacture 400,000 pairs of gumboots a year. The brand is also a proud supporter of its local communities and an active contributor to many charities.
