Algie Clothing takes charge of Tamahine knitwear plant

Dunedin-based Algie Clothing has bought Tamahine knitwear plant, equipment and brands for which negotiations had been initiated three weeks ago.

However, the company will retain 22 employees of the original staff of the plant since skills at Tamahine are recognized country-wide.

Algie Clothing has recreational outdoor brands like Peak XV and Shearwater and has 10 Dunedi and six Christchurch staff. Besides, with the plan of continuing the existing brands of Tamahine like Jackson Bay, Aotearoa, Katie Cullen, Ecology, MacKenzie Country, dot.com.nz and Cirrus, the company will undoubtedly manifold its business operations.

Mr Ken Algie, Algie Clothing Managing Director, confirmed Fibre2fashion, “We take possession of the company on the 1st of July 2008 employing a staff of 38 staff. Our business is in corporate clothing and wholesaling to retail clients throughout New Zealand and we now have our own manufacturing facility.”

Additionally, the company is also involved into a lot of imported product specializing in outdoor recreational clothing. Our brand is Peak XV and the purchase of Tamahine gives it both traditional knitwear and fashion brands to add to their product lines.
