Our Commitment to Ethical Manufacturing
At GMD Activewear Australia, we take pride in our commitment to ethical manufacturing practices. We want you to know that your support for our products extends beyond their quality and style—it's also a statement about the values we hold dear.
We understand that you may have concerns about the origin and conditions of the products you choose to purchase. That's why we're dedicated to transparency.
To ensure that our products meet the high standards we uphold here in Australia, we've taken a hands-on approach. We've personally visited our leotard manufacturer in China multiple times, verifying that everything aligns with our ethical and quality standards. In the coming year, we plan to host our Chinese manufacturing partners here in Australia as well.
A Family Connection
Much like our business in Australia, which is a family trio of a mother and two daughters, our manufacturing partners in China are a close-knit family team—a husband, wife, and sibling trio. This personal connection resonates deeply with us, and it's an essential part of our collaborative spirit.
Fair Wages and Great Working Conditions
One of our core principles is ensuring that all workers involved, both here in Australia and at our manufacturing partner's facility in China, receive fair compensation. We proudly pay above-average wages because we believe in a living wage for all. The working conditions at our partner's factory reflect our commitment to creating a positive and respectful environment. It's a place with clean, organized workspaces, ample break times, and flexible working arrangements for employees.
A Peaceful Setting
Our partner's factory is located in a serene environment, surrounded by trees and away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Recently, they've moved into a modern facility that consolidates all their operations under one roof, an improvement from their previous setup which was spread across three smaller locations.
See for Yourself
We've put some photos below from our most recent trip to China so you can get a firsthand look at the place where your favorite leotards and crop tops are crafted with care and precision.
Your Feedback Matters
We're always open to suggestions and value the input of our customers. If you have any questions or thoughts, please don't hesitate to share. Your feedback shapes our commitment to ethical manufacturing.
