Rowbust Factory Sale 2012

Rowbust Australia 
It's on again - Our Annual Factory SALE!
Typical wintry conditions in Melbourne, I admire those rowers who tell me they still get out there on the water.....what are they thinking!!

For us, the rowing season typically comes to a close after the Masters. We had, despite the cold, wintry, wet conditions at Lake Wendouree, a good few days in Ballarat. Loved meeting our customers, especially the ones from interstate whom we don't  get to see too often.

We were pleased to be the supplier of uniforms to the Australian Defence Rowing Team at the Masters in Ballarat.

We are now in 'business development' mode and I want to say a BIG thank you to all of our customers who supported us last season. Conditions for small businesses are tough and conditions for small business manufacturers in Australia (the few remaining ones) is even tougher.  We are determined to provide a premium quality product and service, and continue to manufacture in Australia.

Is this regard, as an Australian manufacturer, we have won a Small Business Grant from AusIndustry towards the purchase of a computer assisted design package. This will significantly change the way we design and produce our garments.  In the past, pattern making & marking was done manually, which was very time consuming and costly. The new system will give us more freedom to be innovative with designs and production. 

We have also made changes to our products and services (details below) in the Club Kit Service and for Custom Made Cycling

And don't miss our Annual Factory Sale !

Best wishes to our rowers and all our athletes heading to London for the Olympics - Go Australia!

As always, I welcome your input and feedback. You can contact me (Avril) directly at
