COMPANY BACKGROUND 

Mudgway Bros. Ltd. was established in 1939 by brothers Jim and Ron, at a later date they were joined by their brother Jack and their brother inlaw Les. They began by producing leather built heels and master cut soles. Over the years the company progressed and began supplying a full range of insoles and soles to fashion shoe manufacturers. During the early 1970's Jim Snr, son Jim and his wife Josie purchased the company from their relatives, therein transferring ownership to one family.

The company continued to flourish despite fierce competition during the late 1970's and 1980's and in this period acquired 'Ultrastyle Last Co'.Tony (Jim and Josie's son) joined the company in 1978 and around the same time New Zealand's footwear industry began to experience an 'open door' shoe imports policy; the beginning of the demise of many manufacturers. However as other competitors exited the industry, Mudgway Bros. Ltd survived - mainly due to the company's forward thinking.
