Standards and Certification
Elliotts is a quality endorsed company with many of its products certified to specific standards applying to protective clothing and equipment. This means our customers are guaranteed superior product performance across our entire range. It also means that workers use our products with confidence and peace of mind.
Critical to ongoing product development is our commitment to manufacturing products to meet the requirements of Australian or International Standards and to have these products certified by an independent third party. Also, on-going dialogue with our end users ensures we remain agile and responsive to ever-changing customer needs.

Elliotts has grown dramatically since starting out over 50 years ago as a sole trader manufacturing leather nail bags for carpenters. Founded in 1966, Elliotts remains a family business, although operating on a dramatically larger scale.
The growth story began in earnest with incorporation in 1969 and expansion into the manufacture of industrial work gloves for its Queensland customers.
Over the next decade, expansion of the product range continued with a strong focus on leather safety clothing used by the welding industry. During this time, import competition from low cost markets began to take its toll and led the company to examine opportunities for securing a strategic advantage in its specialist field in the Queensland market.
The manufacturing division of the company was expanded with the criteria for product selection based on industrial safety applications requiring highly specialised fabrics and manufacturing methods. This low volume, higher value strategy paid off allowing the company to expand its on-site manufactured range of products. It also allowed the company to extend its customer base beyond Queensland to the wider Australian market. This national expansion was achieved by withdrawing from direct user sales and the appointment of selected industrial distribution companies.
Elliotts distribution network has continued to expand and today has over 1000 Australian distributors with a growing number in Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia and the Pacific Rim.
Elliotts places great importance on quality partnerships and long term relationships. With our dynamic and positive spirit to do the right thing by our partners, customers and our staff, we are positioned to deliver with certainty and to care without compromise.
We are always interested in adding world-class products to our range. We currently represent several international companies promoting their products to the many industries we currently service.
