US marine apparel label Smallwoods Yachtwear has partnered with Australian-headquartered Quality Marine Clothing (QMC) to roll out into the Asia Pacific region.
The collaboration aims to capitalise on the respective strengths of both companies and expand their reach in the marine clothing market.
Smallwoods Yachtwear, established in 1981 in Fort Lauderdale, specialises in functional uniforms tailored for the yachting industry.
“We are really excited about this new partnership, paving the way to the global expansion of our brand with a terrific partner,” said Saxon Cwalinski, sales director at Smallwoods.
QMC, founded in 2017 in Sydney, NSW, is among the leading uniform suppliers in the Apac region. The company said its local knowledge and penetration make it an excellent fit for representing Smallwood in this region.
“We’ve been engaged with several potential partners to enhance our offerings, and Smallwoods was a standout choice due to the clear synergy between our operations,” shared Duncan Curnow, sales and marketing director for QMC.
“We take immense pride in representing them in our region.”
The recent opening of a QMC office in Hong Kong further bolsters its presence in Asia-Pacific.
