May '10
More than 200,000 new Australian-made camouflage uniforms are expected to hit the shelves from July 1, Greg Combet, the Minister for Defence Materiel and Science said.

The news follows the signing of new $30 million clothing contracts with Australian textile companies, Australian Defence Apparel and CTE Pty Ltd.

“This contract is good news for Australian troops, good news for Australia's textile industry, and good for the future of Australian textile jobs,” Mr Combet said.

“Australian Defence Apparel and CTE Pty Ltd will together provide more than 200,000 sets of Australian Defence Force combat uniforms used on operations and in Australia.

“This Announcement is welcome news for the textile, clothing and footwear industry, with all the uniforms manufactured in Australia, by Australians and using Australian fabric.

“In total, the contracts valued at more than $30 million will help to secure the future of more than 100 manufacturing jobs in Victoria.

“Meanwhile, Australian troops can be confident they are getting the quality equipment they need for operations and in Australia.”

Australian Defence Apparel will supply the Australian Defence Force with Disruptive Pattern Camouflage Uniforms and Disruptive Pattern Desert Uniforms from Bendigo, Victoria.

CTE Pty Ltd will provide Disruptive Pattern Navy Uniforms and Disruptive Pattern Desert Uniforms from West Footscray, Victoria.

Bruck Textiles Pty Ltd will make the material for the uniforms in Wangaratta, Victoria.
