Welcome to TXG Compression Socks

About TXG Socks

TXG produce a range of high quality, innovative graduated compression wear products which have been co-developed with a professional medical team in the USA and a dedicated sock and stocking manufacturer based in Taiwan with over 40 years of sock manufacturing experience and 25 years in the specialised field of compression socks manufacturing.

TXG produces a range of graduated compression wear that is designed to conform to the profile of your arm or leg. Most importantly, it applies medical grade graduated compression. This means that the socks, stockings or sleeves are tightest at the ankles (or wrists) and become less constricted towards the knees (or upper arms). This graduated compression offers a range of medical, sporting and health benefits.

There are several other products on the market that are marked simply as "compression socks". These do not feature medical grade graduated compression and do not offer the wider range of benefits that graduated compression wear does.

At TXG Socks we don't believe in a "one size fits all" approach. All our products are designed for specific applications - including health conditions such as swollen, painful legs and deep vein thrombosis, exercising, injury prevention, ligament support, travel, long-haul flights or just the rigours of a healthy lifestyle.

TXG is committed to being "Always One Step Ahead" by constantly combining the latest technology, research and fine craftsmanship to advance our high quality, innovative range of compression socks by combining cutting-edge advancement and selection of fibres and materials such as Supima Cotton, Tencel, Micro Modal, Coolmax, Merino wool, nylon, acrylic and bamboo.

TXG strives for excellence in its manufacturing process to ensure that every pair of socks, stockings or sleeves have the correct designed gradient of compression, integrated design and 3D toe cage, all designed to optimise your health, maximise your sporting potential and provide the unparalleled comfort you deserve. Quality is assured with frequent Quality Assurance (QA) and Quality Control (QC) programmes administered in association with SGS (SGS are world leaders with a reputation for excellence in inspection, product testing, certification and verification enabling organisations to demonstrate that their products, processes and systems are compliant with national and international regulations and standards).

TXG is committed to minimising our impact on the environment. The materials and manufacturing processes, including chemicals utilised by TXG are routinely tested by SGS to be free of the hazardous substances that have been focused on by environmental agencies such as Greenpeace which are often utilised by other manufacturers.

About TXG Socks New Zealand

Grant and Heather didn’t set out to be TXG Socks New Zealand Distributor, everything changed in 2013 when Grant (a Forensic Engineer) discovered TXG compression socks on a business trip to Taiwan. He began wearing the socks while flying and soon realised how beneficial the graduated compression socks were for exercise and everyday wear, too. With four children and an active family lifestyle, it didn't take long for his wife, Heather (a Chartered Accountant), to discover the same benefits. Inevitably, with age, aches and pains had become more frequent and injuries took longer to recover from. They knew that wearing TXG graduated compression socks would help them to reclaim their active lifestyle and prevent Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT) and swelling while travelling. After shopping around, they discovered that high-quality graduated compression socks that are also affordable weren’t readily available in New Zealand.

They were impressed with TXG’s innovative range, and their ongoing commitment to the research and development of fibres, designs and protecting the environment. So, they decided in 2013 to make TXG graduated compression socks more accessible to other New Zealanders.

 It is extremely important to Grant and Heather, as a family business, to focus on providing the kind of customer service they would like to receive. Whether you call, email, or use the extensive resources on the NZ TXG website, their top priority is that you can shop with confidence, knowing your satisfaction is their main concern.

If you have an active lifestyle and want to protect yourself against swelling and a potentially life-threatening Deep Vein Thrombosis (DVT), discover the difference TXG compression wear has made to our customers by reading their stories here.

Mandy Chen

TXG General Manager
Mandy Chen is the General Manager of TXG in Taiwan. Mandy was introduced to compression socks by a Cardiovascular Specialist after developing Varicose veins. Her Specialist warned her of the importance of wearing high quality, medical grade compression socks of the correct pressure level. Coming from the same Sock Manufacturing region as Mr Xiao Mandy began researching and discovered that although many sock factories claimed to produce compression socks that only a select few produced genuine, medical grade graduated compression socks which are tested to international standards. Mandy began working with TXG through a lengthy, extensive Research and Development phase together with a medical team of specialists based in the USA to create a design of compression socks which provide the ultimate comfortable design using high-quality blends of natural fibres. Mandy continues to be involved in Research and Development as TXG continues to improve existing designs and introduce new environmentally friendly products.

Oxfam Trailwalkers 2015 Feedback

"Thanks so much, TXG! We couldn't have done the Oxfam Trailwalk without our TXG compression calf sleeves. Our legs were well supported and the socks are so comfortable! We all successfully completed the 100km walk in 21 hours and 55 minutes and came 48th out of 238! Sorry only 3 of us are wearing them as we, unfortunately, lost a member just before the event and the new member didn't fit Aimee's ones. Along the walk, we had so many positive comments on the compression calf sleeves and we all told them where to get some 😀 Through thick and thin our TXG Calf Sleeves were amazing! :)" Lisa, Aimee, Jacqui & Michelle (Oxfam Trailwalkers 2015).
