About Us




Lynn River is a 100% New Zealand owned and operated company located in the South Island town of Geraldine. Established in 1969, we have grown to become a leading supplier of hand and personal protection products in Australia and New Zealand.

We know gloves like the back of our hand

Our first association with gloves was as a designer and manufacturer, and the expertise required to recognise good glove design is still integral to our culture.

We search the world to find quality gloves that solve our customers’ particular hand protection problems. We offer gloves originating in Europe, America and Asia, often made exclusively to our unique designs and specifications. Our longstanding relationships with the world’s leading glove makers mean we can source or tailor even the most specialist gloves.

Personal Protection Equipment is our forté

From gloves through to our wide range of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE), 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. 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.
