Mr Clare said he has made it clear that the standard combat uniform worn by our soldiers should be made in Australia. “That means the fabric is woven in Australia and the garment is stitched together in Australia,” Mr Clare said. Local companies Australian Defence Apparel in Bendigo, Victoria and Pacific Brands Workwear Group in West Footscray, Victoria will produce the uniforms in a five-year contract, worth an estimated $14.5 million per year.
“I have seen the dedication and pride of those who work for these companies. The high-quality uniforms they manufacture support our troops serving at home and overseas.” Fabrics used in these uniforms will also be made in Australia, by Bruck Textiles in Wangaratta, Victoria and by Technical Fabric Services Australia in South Stapylton, Queensland. “This is an outstanding result for the men and women of our Defence Force, ensuring quality, Australian-made combat uniforms into the future,” Mr Clare said.
