About the Speedo brand

Speedo produce a fantastic range of swimwear and swimming accesories including Speedo super elite, swimsuits, swimming goggles, kickboards, swimming fins and pullbouys plus much more.

Founded in Australia by Alexander MacRae, a 22-year-old Scottish immigrant who arrived in the country in 1910. The ‘SPEEDO’ company began when MacRae Hosiery manufacturers, established by Alexander in 1914, extended the manufacture of underwear to swimwear and became MacRae Knitting Mills. This acceptance of swimwear and the introduction of the ‘Racerback’ costume meant it was time for a new company name.
