Small enough to listen
Big enough to deliver.
The Journey - Our Story
Tasman Workwear and Safety began its grassroots entry into the market in rural Taranaki. Serving the thriving Oil and Gas Industry and surrounding Industrial and Farming districts business rapidly grew through sheer hard work and determination to succeed.
The company continues to enjoy profitable growth and starts the design and development of clothing for the NZ working environment. This sees the first imported shipments of products "designed by New Zealanders for New Zealanders."
This year sees the opening of a second location in Taranaki with business expansion into Wanganui, Manawatu and the Waikato with demand for quality products and prompt service to all industry sectors.
Sees the founding of Cleanline Distributors a specialist cleaning supplies company. Cleanline focuses on providing service and expertise to businesses in the Educational, Hospitality and Healthcare Industries across the lower North Island.
Cleanline outgrows its current facilities and moves to a custom-built facility on 115 Molesworth Street in the heart of the New Plymouth CBD. Consistent growth sees more staff join the business and the beginning of our own range of cleaning products.
The owner's first son joins the business and the 3rd generation starts to assist with management and development of the company to become an industry leader in Hygiene and Cleaning Supplies.
The year of transformation. 2012 sees the acquisition of Tasman Workwear and Safety by Cleanline Distributors Ltd. Cleanline Tasman is born! Years of hard graft and growing the businesses separately now join with an accumulation of knowledge, resources and the prospect of an exciting future...
