About Us

We are the Newcastle Workwear Specialists

Newcastle Workwear Specialists Pty. Ltd. was established in March, 1989 by Mark Russ who prior to opening his original store at Adamstown had a 10 year career working for King Gee here in Newcastle since the age of 16. Workwear is truly Mark’s passion!

Since first opening back in 1989 Newcastle Workwear Specialists has steadily grown from employing 3 staff members in a small shopfront to now employing 18 specialist staff members who all have expertise in their varied fields. We are now located at 26 Newton Street, Broadmeadow with our showroom and embroidery departments amongst our 5 warehouses.

We are proud to be Newcastle and the Hunter Valley’s largest industrial clothing and safety footwear supplier offering our fast, reliable in-house garment embroidery service with our onsite Graphic Artist for all logo designs, our Sales Representative for onsite fit outs, samples and information and our specialist showroom sales team for all your workwear needs. We stock a huge range of safety footwear, industrial workwear, hi-vis clothing, corporate wear, rainwear, hospitality and health workers uniforms as well hats, caps, jackets, eye wear and more.

Mark is very proud and appreciative of his hard working staff and the prompt, efficient service they provide. Without his reliable employees Newcastle Workwear Specialists would not be the local leader in such a competitive market.
