About us

Australia's premier supplier of uniforms and hospitality equipment.

Our customers value us for the quality and service we provide.

Dura-Wear has a nation-wide presence in the hospitality supply industry with our clientele ranging from chefs, cafés and restaurants through to caterers, major hotels and educational institutes.

Our core business is in the design, manufacture, import, wholesale and retail of an extensive range of uniforms, equipment and accessories. We operate primarily out of two Club Chef retail stores in Melbourne, and a third location at the Johnson’s Club Chef store in the Sydney CBD. Our Head Office and Warehouse is based in Fairfield, Victoria.

Our experience in uniform supply logistics has proven that a standardised national uniform is best achieved by having one dedicated and centralised supplier. Such an arrangement provides a complete consolidation of uniform design and quality, staff fitting and delivery arrangements, embroidery (thread quality & colour, logo position), alteration guidelines and supply reporting amongst other benefits. Most importantly it provides one clear communication channel for you.

Providing tailored solutions for over 45 years

It's our dedication to customer service that sets us apart.
