Funding to secure Rossi Boots manufacture in SA


Local boot manufacturer Rossi Boots will continue manufacturing in South Australia with support from a $250,000 State Government grant.

Rossi Boots has identified opportunities for sales growth in North America, China and the United Kingdom, and has developed a business model requiring a new IT platform and website for entry into these markets, as well as a 24/7 customer service centre in Adelaide to service online business and wholesale customers.

A recent review undertaken of their business found, with further investment, Rossi Boots could continue to manufacture the company’s renowned elastic-sided boots in Australia, making it viable for local manufacture and sale to both domestic and export markets.

The new business model means Rossi Boots will focus on growing the market for its elastic sided boot, creating 10 to 15 jobs and continuing the company’s manufacturing in South Australia.

The funding was provided to Rossi Boots in line with State Government’s economic priorities promoting growth through innovation, small business access to capital and global markets and promoting South Australia’s international connections and engagement.
