2020 marks the 25-Year anniversary of Steel Blue.

To mark the Steel Blue 25-year anniversary, we are celebrating our team and extraordinary culture. We know that the success of Steel Blue relies on the success of our people. Today, we focus on two team members that are due to celebrate 25-years of service with Steel Blue in 2020.

Colin Sternberg
Quality Assurance Manager

Colin (pictured right) joined the Steel Blue team shortly after the company started in 1995. He was one of the first staff members in the Western Australian based manufacturing facility and will be celebrating his 25-year milestone later this year.

Over his Steel Blue journey, Colin has taken big steps to grow and develop his career here at Steel Blue, knowing every process and part that goes into our work boots.

Key to Colin’s role is ensuring our work boots continue to deliver 100% comfort and are “Built for Comfort, Made for Work” to support our Steel Blue boot wearing legends every day.

Colin is looking forward to celebrating his 25-year Steel Blue milestone in October 2020.

David Mackwell

David (pictured left) has been part of Western Australian manufacturing team from the early days and will be celebrating his 25-year milestone in November 2020.

For David, boot making has been a family affair. His dad and uncle were boot makers by trade which gave David, and his cousin Cory, an interest and foot in the door into the industry.

He started his Boot Maker Apprenticeship at age 16 which involved learning everything from cutting, sewing and knowing every part that goes into putting a safety boot together. During his time, he has seen the trade evolve to what it is today.

Throughout his time here at Steel Blue, David has continued to work alongside his cousin Cory.
