It all began in 1928 when a well known Quebec businessman, Mr. Alfred Lambert, decided to design and manufacture a wide range of rubber footwear based on the growing demand of the market.At the beginning, Acton® was developing and manufacturing products for the army, the police, the firefighters, the miners and general workers. At that time, the Acton® boots were manufactured in Acton Vale (in Quebec province) where their name comes from.

From Alfred Lambert to Acton International, today Acton® is a Regence footwear inc. owned brand.
