Specialised Textiles Association (STA) representing Australia’s textiles industry,  is in the spotlight as one of the latest partners of the Australian Made Campaign. STA recently launched its #80 YearsStrong campaign during the peak body’s Jubilee anniversary this year.

 STA is the peak national industry association for Australia’s leading textile suppliers.

 It represents fabricators, installers and suppliers of textiles, equipment, accessories and services across Australia’s specialised textiles industry.

 Australian Made Chief Executive, Ben Lazzaro, said the partnership was a timely one and supported the development of Australia’s textile industry.

 “The specialised textile industry is one of the most diverse in Australian and a key component of our manufacturing success.”

 When you buy Australian Made textile products you are supporting Australian manufacturing as a whole.”

 “They are used in almost all industries, including agricultural, construction, automotive, marine, mining and defence, so it is vital that we rally behind local manufacturers to ensure long-term success,” Mr Lazzaro said.

 Australia’s textile manufacturers are world leaders in the field and recognised for excellence and innovation making camping equipment, flags and banners, to shade structures, window furnishings, tarps and awnings.

 “Australia’s textile manufacturers have already demonstrated their capacity to adapt and innovate during these challenging times, with many re-tooling to produce much-needed equipment.”

 “STA acts as a voice for the textile industry, and we are excited to have them on board as an Australian Made Campaign Associate.” Mr Lazzaro adds.

 STA President, James Kelman said, “Our partnership with the Australian Made campaign provides our association, along with our members, the opportunity to not only promote Australian made textile products but also to help raise consumer awareness.”

 Australia’s world-leading textiles industry produces premium locally-made products for both indoor and outdoor use.

 STA represents 160 predominantly small to medium-sized business fostering relationships, information sharing, lobby government and work towards industry-wide accreditation.

 "STA has been around for 80 years and always been able to link Australia’s leading textile fabricators with world-class suppliers to deliver global excellence in textile fabrication.”

 “In these uncertain times, Aussie consumers can rest assured knowing STA members are manufacturing quality products locally, that are made for Australian conditions. All of STA’s members operate under an Industry Code of Ethics and can offer fast and innovative solutions with proven performance,” Mr Kelman said.
