The Australian Made Campaign is urging sports organisations to consider sourcing Australian-made uniforms today, on the 30th anniversary of one of our great sporting achievements – Australia’s famous America’s Cup victory.

Memorabilia displayed during the anniversary celebrations included the uniform worn by our sailors, which was produced by Victorian knitwear manufacturer Hysport. Hysport is still manufacturing quality knitwear today, right here in Australia.

Australian Made Campaign Chief Executive Ian Harrison said that this was a timely reminder for sports organisations to consider sourcing their uniforms from Australian manufacturers.

“Australia has some of the highest manufacturing standards in the world, so we are perfectly capable of meeting the requirements of our elite athletes – there is no excuse,” Mr Harrison said.

“At a time when it is clear that consumers, even Government, are placing more importance on buying Australian-made, it is disappointing that so few organisations have local procurement policies in place,” Mr Harrison said.

Recently released Roy Morgan research* revealed just 20 per cent of Australian companies have a firm policy of buying Australian-made goods wherever possible.

“We recognise the need to keep costs down, but we urge organisations to consider local alternatives – products made and grown in Australia to our high quality, health and safety standards offer genuine value,” Mr Harrison said.

“On this 30th anniversary, congratulations again to the winning Aussie team, to Hysport and to Australian manufacturing.”
