JCB Workwear

Progressive Safety Footwear & Clothing Ltd was founded by John Topham in 1961.

John started out selling steel toecap boots to miners and soon moved into the company’s first premises, in the Old Vinegar Brewery in the East End of Sheffield.

Together with his son Howard Topham, Progressive’s Managing Director, they moved the business into the 34,000sq ft Distribution Centre Headquarters in Darnall, Sheffield in 1995.

John was a popular, well respected member of the local business community and was still involved in the everyday business of the company right up until his 90th birthday. John Topham passed away in February 2013.

Today the company employs over 60 at its headquarters and has a 10 strong salesforce throughout the country.

In 2008, Progressive Safety was awarded the exclusive licence for the UK and Ireland to manufacture a range of safety footwear under the world-renowned JCB brand.

The licence has since been extended to include the manufacture and sale of a range of premium workwear. This has helped establish the brand as a major player in the marketplace and a rival to other big brands.

Purchased a few items from the JCB work wear range from boots and trousers to hoodies and most recently a body warmer or gillet for the posh guys! Boots were well made and lasted a while although can be expensive depending on where you buy? most often these items are available at merchants, wholesalers and diy outlets, carrying on..... the trousers were again well made, pretty tough and plenty of pockets, made with heavy material downside is can be hot in the summer! Hoodie well made and tough has lasted me ages! The body warmer was again well made looks neat don’t know if it would stand up to much on site though?

Asked my Electrical Wholesaler for some LED lamps and to my surprise they bought a box of JCB lamps out. Great product and good value for money. Will continue to use.

Brought a pair of jcb work trousers the ones with the knee pads in I wore these to work and was so disappointed with the quality as when I bent down on my knees the knee pads were on my thighs and not supporting my knee which is what they are designed to do and as a roofer this is a must I will never buy jcb workwear again.

I've had a few jcb screwdrivers and the boots. I'd say the boots were better quality than most and lasted well until the inevitable toe wore out. The screwdrivers were surprisingly good, picked them up in B&Q when working at a friends house down south expecting to use them once in the emergency but they actually felt comfortable and gripped the screws well. Used them till I lost them. They never broke.
