The ESKO brand story


Esko is New Zealand's own premium safety products brand. 

Behind the brand stands years of experience, manufacturing and supplying safety products designed to stand between humans and harm in some of New Zealand's most challenging industries; agricultural, automotive, civil, industrial, marine, and manufacturing. We also help keep our country's roads, and the people who drive and work on them, safer.

As a result, some of New Zealand's largest companies trust Esko safety products to protect their most important asset, their employees. 

As a staunchly Kiwi-owned, intergenerational company, we're always looking to innovate, while respecting our past. Because we take our responsibility to workers, companies, and suppliers seriously, Esko only stock quality, accredited products.

Our customer service staff are our biggest asset—ensuring dealing with Esko is easy, and efficient. And, if we don't have the right product for you, we'll do our best to source it. We understand the importance of meeting the customer's needs, from the distributor to the end user.


At the end of the day, our job is to help get everyone home safe. You can rely on us for that.
