The Jal Group was founded in France by Pierre Jallatte in 1947, Jallatte®'s safety expertise is the result of years of safety boot manufacturing experience. Jallatte uses its 70 years expertise to address workers' health and safety issues: by offering safe, comfortable, well-designed footwear. Jallatte® completely integrates its ideas on safety comfort and design into its footwear, right from the design phase.
THE BRAND Today
Jallatte is owned by JAL Group. The JAL Group was created from the merger in 2000 of two French and Italian safety boot manufacturers: the French group Jallatte® (Jallatte® and Lupos® brands) and the Italian group Almar (AIMONT® and ALMAR® brands).
The company makes safety shoes and boots for construction workers, for iron and steel, oil and gas, and mining industries; extreme temperatures; manufacturing industries that include wet environment and dry environment assembly, and the chemical industry; and construction and outdoor work, transport-distribution-logistics, tertiary-services, pharmaceutical-food industry, and ladies range.
THE METHODS OF PRODUCTION
The majority of Jallatte Boots production is manufactured in Tunisia, in JAL Group's technologically-advanced manufacturing unit, which employs over 4,400 people. The plant in Saint-Hippolyte-du-Fort makes Lightane, Triftane and dual-density Softane PU outsoles, as well as Xétane lightweight, composite toe caps. However, the real reason the Jallatte boots are so sought after is their use of AP23 premium leather which is oil adn water resistant. This AP23 leather is really what sets the Jalaska Rigger boot apart from others, in terms of compfort and longevity.
Jal says “Jallatte maintains highly automated, flexible production units, making 3,000+ pairs each day. At each stage of the manufacturing process and before leaving the plant, Jallatte Boots undergo tests and quality controls. The quest for quality begins with the careful selection of raw materials and components that have previously been tested for performance”.
What we say: Our customers can't get enough of these boots: the Jallatte rigger J0266 is the industry leading, safety rigger boot. They are made of premium tan leather and have a dual density that seems to be favoured by construction workers across the UK. - these riggers are legend! The Jallatte Jalartic J0257 is the fur lined version of the Jalaska Rigger boot - used widely in winter.
The Jallatte Jalarcher JJV28 is the side zip, high leg, black safety boot, with lightweight composite safety toe cap. It gives excellent ankle support, while allowing quick, easy access and egress via the side zip.
