Company Announcement: RSEA to Merge with Get Real Workwear Tasmania 

It gives us great pleasure to today announce the coming together of two great businesses.  The Get Real Workwear Tasmanian (GRWT) stores will join RSEA, uniting to create Australia’s largest independent national safety retailer and B2B service provider.

GRWT operates throughout Tasmania in four locations and has been the clear market leader for well over the past decade. Owner Principle, Tony McCulloch, who will remain with the business, today said “we are excited to be taking the next stage of our growth with a partner who is setting the benchmark for the industry with all that it is doing, RSEA will ensure that our product and service levels continue to drive our Tasmanian business forward.”

RSEA Managing Director, Brandon Chizik, commented that “Tony has built an outstanding business over a long period of time in Tasmania, which has been the missing link in our national footprint. There is no-one more respected in the industry than Tony and we welcome him and the GRWT team to RSEA.”

The combined businesses will have a 34 store national retail footprint, 11 distribution warehouses and a national B2B sales team operating in every state and territory, reinforcing its credentials as the emerging force in the industry.
