I prefer to support Australian Made, why don’t you use Australian manufacturers?

SMAI is an Australian success story. A 100% Australian family-owned business, headquartered on the Coal Coast of the Illawarra, in Wollongong NSW. SMAI employs Aussies in its leadership, customer service, sales, product design, warehousing, shipping, logistics, marketing & I.T departments. When you buy from SMAI, the majority of the purchase price goes to supporting our locally-based staff. 

Over 35 years ago, the first SMAI products were hand-sewn in a local garage. This continued for over a decade before demand for our quality products outgrew our capacity. As global demand for our products has grown (we’re now available in over 65 countries!) global manufacturing is the only way to serve our customers around the globe. 

 In order to bring high-qualit products to our customers at an affordable price point in scale, and to expand our local team, global manufacturing is the best way to service our customers.
