Velotex in collaboration with our clients designs ultimate Corporate Wardrobes for Companies, Schools, Clubs, etc. Ranging from Corporate AeroMasks right through to branded Drivers Jackets.
We are based in Cape Town, South Africa and our owners have been involved in the manufacture and marketing of active sports apparel since 1982. In 1982 they started off manufacturing cycle apparel for the local market, with their options then spanning custom-made, as well as prescribed ranges, and basic garments.
In pursuit of increased quality and control over the various production functions, has Velotex Leisure continuously strived to be as vertical as is possible, and by way of investing in the latest and most efficient technology and equipment are we proud to offer our exceptional, in-house, designing, digital sublimation printing, screen-printing, and a sizeable variety of other branding techniques, in addition to our sewing facilities, to our continuously growing clientele.
Although our specialist field has always been that of corporate leisure apparel, have we traded successfully in a large variety of markets, garment-styles and products, ranging from promotional apparel, to table cloths, race numbers, branding solutions, kikoys and picnic blankets, for both, our local, as well as for the international, market.
Whilst we extremely proud to have been represented in a selection of countries across the globe, are we still an extremely flexible business, able to design and produce custom orders of only 1 unit or more, but yet also able, to cope with large volumes, when so required.
Our portfolio currently includes personalised, custom, leisure and promotional apparel and gifts, customised branding solutions, and an imported range of kikoys, shukas and related products. We are pleased to also offer an own-branding manufacture service option, to other brands or distributors, on any item we manufacture and/or distribute.
Our involvement, and a good measure of our success in this industry, stems from our Johnny Koen’s continued personal participation and high-profile activity in the sport of cycle racing:
He participated for 22 years, 10 of which as a professional, and upon his retirement from active racing, become our National Broadcaster’s cycling radio and television reporter and presenter, as well as becoming engaged, at cycle events, as an MC/Commentator, on as many as 40 weekend occasions, per annum, affording us with the assurance of having an exceptionally good feel, for what is required, in the closely related, to the technical sports apparel market: the leisure corporate promotional apparel and gifts sector of the market.
We are delighted to have been the past apparel partner sponsors of Cycling South Africa, whilst we are the proud official apparel partners to some of the foremost cycle events in our country, and also to the Porsche Club of SA.
