Your SHARKSKIN garments are made right here in Australia! We are the largest employer of Australian's in the Australian dive or paddle equipment manufacturing sector.
SHARKSKIN garments are 100% manufactured in Beresfield NSW by a team of skilled and professional designers and machinists. Aussies just like you who manufacture our high quality, technical watersports range right here in Australia.
Apart from keeping jobs in Australia, local manufacturing ensures we manage our quality control to ensure consistent sizing, quality and finish on every garment.
The other key benefit of remaining Australian made is that we are not bound by the large production numbers required by offshore manufacturing which allows us to offer a broader range of products and sizes, including custom garments, while continuing to innovate and being super responsive to the changing needs of the watersports market.
In contrast all of our competition is made in offshore factories and experience the same underline range, supply and quality issues commonly found with offshore manufacturing.
From a productivity and cost standpoint, we long ago found that we are far more efficient manufacturing in our Australian factory and as a Australian SHARKSKIN retailer you are buying direct from the manufacturer and not a distributor.
Rather than compromise and buy inferior imported products, buy Australian made SHARKSKIN and support Australian manufacturing and Australian jobs.
