Australia’s most innovative & collaborative Australia-Wide full-service supplier to sporting clubs, educational institutions, white & blue collar workplaces.
We provide fully customised uniforms, apparel, sporting equipment & promotional products plus much, much more, with our on-time delivery guarantee, best price promise & post purchase warranty ensuring we take all the stress out of any purchase.
The TeamMates Australasia business runs a Club Supply, Work Supply & School Supply division so you know you are always talking to experts across each of these three sectors. Whilst there is a lot of product & service crossover between these divisions, how these products are ordered & the relationships managed differs greatly, something we ensure we take into all client relationships.
We are also the manufacturer with our very own factory which ensures complete control & commitment to quality, deadlines & consistency of work, each & every time. No minimum order quantities & the ability to design, colour match & sample up a client’s existing item ensures complete peace of mind with all orders.
The actual ‘product’ part of a client interaction is the easy part for us as we take a very hands-on approach to learning as much as we can about our clients & their ‘pain points’, & then apply a solution-based focus to address all their concerns to win both their trust & patronage.
Made up of a team of committed & passionate business-savvy people, we understand no two clients are alike & treat each client as an individual, something rare to find in our industry. We ensure total understanding of our clients ‘what’ & ‘why’ before finding the best tailored solution for them.
We walk the talk, each & every day, & stake our reputation on this.
WHY CHOOSE US
We spent a great deal of time putting ourselves in the position of our clients, & in consultation with many of our clients across our different divisions we made up a list of the must have’s & wants our clients sought. We systematically addressed each point on this list to try & remove all ‘pain points’ that clients find when dealing with our competitors. The following is what we believe provides the ‘how’ for our clients to avoid the challenges they have experienced in the past.
OUR IMPORTANT POINTS OF DIFFERENCE:
BEST PRICE PROMISE
POST PURCHASE WARRANTY
NO MINIMUM ORDER REQUIREMENTS
NO COST DESIGN & CUSTOMISATION
REVERSE ENGINEERING OF ANY ITEM
WE OWN THE FACTORY
COMPLIMENTARY CLIENT WEB SHOP
AUSTRALIAN OWNED & OPERATED
Already working with only ‘best in class’ factories & suppliers, in 2019 we took our dream a step further & opened our very own manufacturing factory in Sialkot, Pakistan. Directly employing over 20 staff & manufacturing all manner of apparel, bags, knitwear & hosiery, this provides us absolute control of the ordering process resulting in excellent product quality & pricing matched with a 14-day delivery turnaround. This has really set us apart from our competitors & taken our business to the next level.
In early 2020 we took the opportunity to create sub-brands that cater for each of the different markets we service within the TeamMates Australasia business, those being Clubs, Schools & Commercial sectors. This is where the TMA Club Supply, TMA School Supply & TMA Work Supply brands were born. As extensions of the TeamMates Australasia brand, we carry the same points of difference through all these divisions & has allowed for the building of our very recognisable ‘TMA’ brand across all these sectors.
Our Director has over 35 years’ experience in this industry & ensures his knowledge & expertise is passed down to all our TeamMates Australasia team, so there are very few issues that our clients have that we can’t resolve.
Our business secures clients & simply doesn’t lose them, ever! Whether a small or large client, we treat all the same, something we stake our reputation on. We must be doing something right to have our clients coming back to us year after year…. Something we are very proud of.
