The hub has processed over 300,000 items for personnel within the AFP and ABF and provides total apparel management for more than 10,000 personnel.
Dixon said the facility provides best support for Commonwealth clients, technological advancement, and apparel for management systems, spanning defence, law enforcement, healthcare, government and corporate industries.
“The official opening of the ADA Canberra Commonwealth Hub is instrumental in delivering on our commitment to combine leading textiles and new technologies to best serve our diverse clientele,” he said.
“We trust that the ADA hub will allow ABF and AFP personnel to receive the highest quality care and service, complemented by high-tech apparel systems to allow them to perform their duties with comfort and ease and take less time away from work duties.
