Albion Clothing Limited opened it’s doors in the late 1970’s. At this time, New Zealand manufacture was booming and technology and innovation had started to transform the garment industry. Albion's founder, George Steele, 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, they have continued to clothe the New Zealand Police / Fire Service, the Defence Force and many other important Government organisations around the world. In 2019, Cactus Outdoor, one of Albion's longest-standing customers, bought Albion Clothing and together they look forward to the decades ahead.
