Portwest: The Future of Workwear

Thursday, 31 October 2019

It's hard to believe that a company which has influence in four continents, 120 countries and with over 4,000 employees on its books, started in a tiny, humble textile shop in Westport, Ireland. Founded in 1904, Portwest expanded from selling drapery and footwear to become a multi-million pound business that is a global leader in personal protection equipment. In the gloves, workwear, fall protection and fire safety clothing industries among many more, Portwest has become a household name.
