Akubra have been making hats for the military since Gallipoli but were not the exclusive suppliers – majority were going overseas. Defence has realised this and made Australian Content a major component of the tender and as our hats are 99% Australian content we are hoping to increase our share of the supply tender.

It has been a delight listing our suppliers and seeing other Australian companies such as Milford Astor that were established 80 – 100 years ago still going strong and supplying us. I would like to thank you for your support to us in supplying foils and magnesium stamping dies. We appreciate the excellent service.
