Handy Eyewear Cords

As we approach a change in seasons, sunglasses can become an unnecessary accessory, until the glare of sunshine emerging from behind a cloud has us scrambling to find them again. No one wants to juggle sunnies, a phone, keys and a bag, so the VISIONSafe Eyewear Cords make a perfect addition to any type of eye wear. Likewise, if you make use of reading glasses, or just don’t want to risk losing a pair of your favourite safety glasses, the Cords make sure you never put them down somewhere ‘safe’ and never see them again!

Coming in a range of colours, the cords are made from a strongly woven, synthetic material that is designed to securely hold your glasses. Contact us to source a stockist near you, and try out this handy little product today.

An Important Announcement…

As of the 1st of May 2015 VISIONSafe Pty Ltd will take over Newcastle Hats.

Newcastle Hats have been manufacturing stylish work hats, casual hats and outdoor bush hats since 1988. The company created the concept of washable squashable hats, which is now commonplace in Australia as a great work and leisure hat.

The company’s clients cover the complete spectrum of businesses and include some of the most prominent and extensive corporations and government authorities in the country. Newcastle Hats have proven their comfort and durability in the toughest conditions over many years throughout Australia, North America, Europe and New Zealand.

The business was started by Bob Cruickshank and Carol Graham in 1988 and for the first 13 years the business was located in various premises in Newcastle. They grew the business steadily, relying largely on word of mouth through satisfied customers to attract new customers. This strategy produced a business that sold a huge range of hats throughout Australia.

In 2001 the business was sold to Rob and Annie Lord who subsequently relocated to a purpose built premises in Coonabarabran, North West NSW. This has enabled an expansion of manufacturing capacity whilst maintaining the high quality standards the business has been renowned for. The ability to develop new designs to meet individual customers’ needs remains a key benefit of dealing with Newcastle Hats.

A personal note from Robert & Annie Lord

Robert and Annie would like to thank all of our customers over the last 14 years, whose support has made it possible to continue to manufacture a quality product in Australia. We would like to wish the Vision Safe team all the success in the future and we are sure they will provide excellent service to our loyal customers for many years to come. Their commitment to ongoing local manufacturing should be applauded and supported as we have been.

Once this Iconic Australian Company is integrated into the VISIONSafe family we will look at expanding the range but be assured there are no plans to alter the current styles that are so well known and loved.

In the short term you will see a considerable increase in the stock holding of all popular styles resulting in much shorter delivery times and a vast improvement in order fill rates. All front office duties including sales and marketing will be moved to our WA facility, which will enable us to offer you our customary excellence in customer service.

The manufacturing facility will remain in the current location. The factory is staffed by committed and experienced people and this will ensure the integrity and quality of all Newcastle Hats products will be maintained.

We look forward to the continued support of Newcastle Hats loyal customers and assure you of our ongoing commitment to the brand.

Managing Director – VISIONSafe Pty Ltd

Product of the Month – January ’15

Our first Product of the Month for 2015 is UVeto Australia’s Kool Tie!

Now that we are in the hot summer months, the Kool Tie is the perfect accessory to keep yourself cool and refreshed. The Kool Ties are ideal for hikers, cyclists and anyone who spends a lot of time in the outdoors. These extra long ties contain Polymer Crystals that absorb and retain water which cools you down by the process of evaporation. All you have to do is soak the ties for 10-15 minutes to activate the crystals and then wrap it around you neck. You can also refrigerate the ties for extra coolness on hot days. The Kool Ties are also available in a range of colours as well as cotton and micro-mesh versions.
