The organization consists of a highly-integrated group of companies owned and operated by a family whose history can be traced back to the 1840s. This family purchased Blundstone Pty. Ltd. in 1932, amalgamating their footwear manufacturing operations under the Blundstone name.
Despite having grown into one of the world’s most recognizable boot brands, the company remains Tasmanian and retains its family values.
In 2000, Blundstone acquired the iconic John Bull brand, which was founded in New Zealand in 1934.
