Wedgetail Pacific Pty Ltd is a wholly Australian owned business located on the Gold Coast, Queensland Australia.
The business was established in April 2005 with the aim of providing a service to the Australian Defence Force Cadets and has transitioned into operating globally, distributing accoutrements and equipment to a variety of customers including, Government, Corporate and Individual buyers.
In 2004, the founders of the company had a desire to promote the Australian Defence Force Cadets to the wider community and to support the individual cadet unit commanders and managers by providing a one-stop shop for their units and individual cadets.
On the 12th April 2005 the company was established and the vision of the founders began to turn into a reality. Although still a young company the support that was given by ADFC units and individuals resulted in an exponential growth. This growth enabled us to provide a greater level of service, wider product selection, and ultimately better support to the ADFC.
Over the course of the first five years, we started with a limited product selection, principally focusing on Rank Insignia and Name Tags. Over the proceeding years, expansion in the field equipment market enabled cadets and military personnel in remote areas of Australia and abroad, to be able to access equipment and supplies without having to travel to a physical store. We have also been able to expand our promotional/corporate products and clothing.
Over the years, we have had the privilege of being a supplier to International Sporting events, Major Stage Productions in New South Wales, Federal and State Government Agencies, and most of all, the Cadets of the Australian Defence Force Cadets. We have also developed products for the Australian Army.
In 2013, we moved to our first full showroom location at Coolangatta on the Gold Coast Queensland where we were open to the public. We quickly outgrew that store and in 2015 moved to a warehouse & shop at Burleigh Heads Queensland.
In May 2016, the baton was passed to a new Management Team with a renewed vision and focus on the future. A vibrant and new website was launched and we have increased the capabilities to make custom field items and manufacture embroidered goods.
Now we have settled in a much larger facility, still in Burleigh Heads but with greater expansion we are able to carry a much larger range. With a dedicated manufacturing arm we also have capacity to develop unique custom items.
We will continue to support the ADFC wherever possible and understands the unique situation that many ADFC Officers and Instructors find themselves in. We are striving to offer a service, that delivers on quality and price as well as providing various options to individual customers. Our focus will always be on supporting the ADFC through our business.
