Why have Partners?

At Goliath Footwear Ltd we are experts at injection soling technology and make many of our own components such as the polycarbonate caps and fixtures.  We are also experts at the footwear manufacturing process and have done so for over 130 years.  But our business is about creating the best quality product for the job application, so we work with the world's leading technology companies such as W.L. GORE & Associates and D30® who are experts in their field, to bring you quality safety footwear solutions; footwear to make a difference, keeping you comfortable and safe at work.
