Troublesome work, advancement, and a friendship for nature are gigantic bits of the Timberland region story. They have been since the earliest reference point.
Everything started in 1952 when our coordinator, Nathan Swartz, bought a half-interest in the Abington Shoe Association. He moved continuously up from an apprenticeship resulting to moving to the US and over the long haul bought out his accomplice and welcomed his kids into the business.
The Abington Shoe Association in a little while moved to Newmarket, New Hampshire, arranged in a minute corner of New England known for its fantastic mountain ranges, harsh shorelines, thick boondocks, streams, lakes, and permission to uncommon east coast metropolitan communities. This region of the planet experiences each kind of environment — blizzards, second rainstorms, unforgiving winters, and summer heat waves.
Wandering external in any kind of weather patterns was an issue Backwoods region was bound to handle.
In 1973 our special waterproof boots called the “Woods region” were planned. They were harsh, overall around made, and — in view of a creative implantation framing methodology which was new to the footwear business — they persevered through the components. These excellent “yellow” boots set new standards for waterproof execution in the footwear business. They ended up being correspondingly notable with outdoors fans who required security in all conditions, capable trade workers who required unpleasant dependable stuff, and various others who just required a phenomenal looking arrangements of boots. These boots described our picture. They were vital to the point that in 1978 we renamed the entire association.
Woodland region’s tradition of troublesome work, advancement, and love of nature continues. We are here to spur and set up the world to step outside, coordinate and further develop it. Today, we view as the external everywhere, from simply outer our approaches to places quite far past. We track down it in metropolitan communities, provincial regions, and the open country. It’s where we work, play and point of interaction with one another. That is the explanation not entirely settled to make our picture and company a power for positive change. We are centered around making our world greener, our organizations more grounded, and our things better with less impact on the environment.
This mission is business as usual.
Right when we plan another boot, shoe, coat, sets of glasses, or even a Shirt, it not simply has to look great, we truly need to ponder its impact on nature. Since introducing our novel waterproof boots, we’ve remained focused in on making innovative things that get people outside, are made with normally discerning materials, and made to continue onward for quite a while. We hope to not simply limit our impact on the environment through the things we make, yet to at some point become net positive.
