OUR STORY

Tech Vest Australia was founded in 2001 based upon an innovative concept of its Director, Trevor Boyd, who at the time had been a tradesperson for several years with an underground coal mine in the Hunter Valley, New South Wales, Australia.

Trevor realised there was a great need for a more efficient way of carrying the necessary equipment required by the modern underground worker. Based upon his experience, he went about designing, creating and developing a load carrying harness, now known as “The Tech Vest”.

In July 2001 Tech Vest Australia was created. Also at this time “The Tech Vest” was design registered and trademarked. Soon after, Tech Vest Australia was awarded recognition by the New South Wales Minerals Council at the 2002 OHS Innovation Awards.

In 2015 Trevor has developed the “Tech Vest Lite”, a new high visibility load-carrying modular harness for use in the Open Cut Mining Sector, which can also be tailored to the Construction and Emergency Services Industries.

Tech Vest Australia uses the latest materials and modern technology in its manufacturing process. The company is competitive in pricing and competent in handling bulk orders for small and large mining ventures and associated industries.

Tailored to suit your needs

Not everyone is the same size or carries the same gear so that’s why the Tech Vest® is readily available in a range of sizes from Small to XXL. We also have a range of pouches and accessories to ensure that your essential tools and equipment are secure. Contact us today to discuss your requirements.
