Our Story

Our history

UMS is a long-standing and trusted brand in school uniforms. We steer away from short-lived gains in favour of building positive, long-term relationships. This mentality has given UMS a distinct culture founded on trust and integrity.

UMS is a leading manufacturer and supplier of Australian school uniforms. Today the owners of the family business are proud to have grown and established a well-known, successful and trusted Australian brand. The success is primarily due to the owner’s strong values and desire to provide customers with quality garments that are both ethically made and sourced.

The company moved manufacturing offshore in 2005 and in 2012 decided to start our own factory in Vietnam (UMSV) in order to have full and direct control over the planning and manufacturing of our uniforms. We believe that this rare ownership provides customers with a great advantage, as UMS can offer assurance of ethical trading, small minimums, quick lead-times and so much more. We pride ourselves on offering a trustworthy and dependable solution for your school.

Our People, Our Planet, Our Promise

We know the importance of ensuring that your school uniforms are ethically made. It is with complete confidence that UMS provide our customers full transparency into our manufacturing facility.

We selected the UMS team for their professional proposal, confidence in quality and delivery and their commitment to delivering the best possible product. We believe our successful partnership has delivered a unique, high quality uniform to the students and families of South Rock State School.

South Rock State School - Aaron Jones, Principal

UMS have been a supplier of our day uniforms for longer than I have been at Churchie which is fifteen years, which I think says a lot for the company in today’s market We have a wonderful relationship with UMS. Nothing has been too much trouble. If we need something urgently, they try and usually succeed in getting them to us. Even with Covid they kept us informed all the time, and as soon as possible stock was sent.

I would highly recommend UMS to be the supplier of uniforms for your school. The quality of the material and workmanship in their garments is superior. It is very rare that I have to return any items to UMS.

Anglican Church Grammar - Clare Manieri, Uniform Shop Manager

It has been wonderful to work with UMS in the supplying of our uniform at Loreto College Coorparoo. UMS are efficient, flexible, courteous and understanding, and I recommend them without reserve as an outsourced uniform supplier. The team have been prompt and thorough and I look forward to continuing our professional relationship with UMS.

Loreto College Coorparoo - Ysabella Chambers Dawson, Director of Pastoral Care

UMS are such a pleasure to work with. There is never a problem that cannot be solved and always a helpful person on the end of the phone with a smile. It is a pleasure to use and be associated with a family-run Australian company who has wonderful work ethics both here and abroad. The quality of the products are always being praised by our parents who often say that the children outgrow the uniform before it wears out. Thank you so much for making my job just that little bit easier UMS and especially to my Rep, Michelle.

Fraser Coast Anglican College - Marie Wright, Retail Manager

In a difficult year for uniform suppliers we are so glad that we chose UMS. They came to us highly recommended by so many schools, and now we have experienced what he all told us. Nothing was too difficult for UMS, and everything was handled so professionally and yet personably. Their products are of excellent quality and yet competitively priced. The one thing that I found great is that they seem to under-promise and over-deliver. I'd rather be pleasantly surprised than severely disappointed any day.

Livingstone Christian College - Glen Klein, Uniform Shop Coordinator

Since moving to UMS as a supplier of our school uniforms I have been extremely happy. The quality of our uniforms we receive from UMS is a huge improvement on what we were getting when I took over the running of St John's Anglican College Uniform Shop. I often have parents commenting on the length of time that their child gets out of their clothes which is always a bonus in these times when people are struggling with balancing everything. All the team at UMS are very professional and on the odd occasion that there has been a small hiccup it has always been sorted promptly.

St John's Anglican College - Mandy Willemse, Uniform Shop Manager

It's such a pleasure working with UMS. They deliver on every promise they make Their uniforms are so beautifully made and last for years. Their prices are really reasonable so I can offer high quality uniforms at good prices. That's what my parents want from their uniform shop at Sunshine Coast Grammar School.
