For decades, Blackwoods has been the supplier of choice providing workwear apparel solutions across Australian industry.

Industry proven knowledge of Australian working conditions ensure Blackwoods have the right range to meet the unique demands of the mining industry. From the hot and humid conditions experienced by employees above the 26th parallel to the cooler climates of Tasmania, whether it is maternity wear, bespoke smelter clothing or Fire Retardant styles, Blackwoods has the right apparel offer to meet customer needs.

The apparel team is at the forefront of new product development, in-house embroidery capabilities, and technology and innovations within the industry that improve wearer safety and comfort whilst ensuring industry standards are strictly adhered to.

Earlier this year, Blackwoods partnered with BHP to create a more inclusive work wear range for women. To deliver on these requirements, an extensive consultation program was undertaken to understand the needs of the end-users. When the partnership started there were just 18 female range compared to 60 male ranges. Now there are 52 female ranges, with unisex options filling the small gap that remains.

Blackwoods also hosted a specific maternity wear workshop with 30 participants, who were all pregnant at the time. This workshop resulted in the design of a custom maternity wear range that is fit-for-purpose and that expectant mothers would actually want to wear.

The Blackwoods workwear team also has an in-house design unit that supports its exclusive brand Workhorse. The designers, product manager and demand planner work together with customers to ensure the right product is created and then well serviced with timely deliveries and healthy stock availability. Wherever possible, the Workhorse team take the opportunity to visit our partners on-site to gain a better understanding on how to continuously improve its offer.
