Albion Clothing Limited opened it’s doors in the late 1970’s. At this time, New Zealand manufacture was booming. Technology and innovation had started to transform the garment industry and Albion looked to take advantage of the opportunity.
George Steele (our founder) always had an eye for quality. He sensed an opportunity to focus on garments made well, great relationships and a continued investment in the best technology, not just the latest technology.
Since Albion’s inception, we have continued to clothe the New Zealand Police / Fire Service, the Defence Force and many other important Government organisations around the world.
George also had a goal to ensure Albion Clothing had the right team with the best technology, to help fashion designers realise their creative vision. Albion has been privileged to help many New Zealand brands gain global recognition.
In 2019, Cactus Outdoor, one of our longest-standing customers, bought Albion Clothing and together we look forward to the decades ahead.
