About Us




Wise Trade Safety is no fresh egg when it comes to the Safety and PPE market. We have recently undergone a rebrand and as a result the Wise name was born and the Owl is ready to fly! 

We know PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) like you wouldn't believe

We have been an established company since 1969. We dipped our toes into the PPE market almost 20 years ago and haven't looked back since.  

We search the world to find quality safety products that solve our customers’ particular PPE problems. We offer PPE originating in Asia, often made exclusively to our unique designs and specifications. Our longstanding relationships with the world’s leading manufacturers mean we can source or tailor even the most specialist products.

PPE is our forté

Our aim is to provide the utmost protection for people performing tasks at work and home. In 2016 there were 233,000 claims for work related injuries in New Zealand*. Many of these could have been avoided if the correct safety equipment was available and worn properly. We strive to educate workplaces on the importance of PPE and why it’s crucial even for the simplest of tasks, and provide employees with the protection they need for a safe day’s work, every day.

Guaranteed to meet the correct standard

We pride ourselves on ensuring that all of our products are tested to meet the correct Australia and New Zealand standards. Beyond that, we constantly review customer needs within the PPE market and look for new ways to improve safety outcomes, usability, comfort and overall satisfaction.

There when you need us

Being based in a picturesque South Island town doesn’t affect our ability to send products all over New Zealand and Australia with speed and efficiency. We have multiple warehouses strategically placed in NZ and Australia to ensure the quickest delivery times. Our orders are dispatched with a speedy turnaround resulting in a 2 day delivery to anywhere in the South Island, 3-4 days to the North Island and normally within 5 working days to Australia. Please note: Delivery times may be delayed due to Covid times.
