AusCoz was formed in 2001 in Currumbin on the Gold Coast Queensland by Nigel and Liz Milnes. Liz originally created Situation Clothing in the UK in 1986 and it grew to such an extent that by 2000 it was a Limited company employing 16 people re branded as Costumes with Character.
After receiving orders from Australia for Surf lifesaving Queensland and the ABC, Nigel brought a range of costumes to the 1999 AALARA exhibition on the Gold Coast and it was so successful the family decided to relocate to Queensland. After completing a successful 3 year business migration plan, and gaining citizenship AusCoz was formed – and the rest is history. Now 10 years on AusCoz is proud to be providing costumes for The Wiggles, The Brisbane lions, The Gold Coast Titans and The Gold Coast City Council to name a few.
AusCoz and the company have been very well received at trade fairs and exhibition all around the world and Nigel’s background in advertising, marketing and design has helped create the unique brand and style of AusCoz which has been so successful.
We believe the reason behind the success is understanding the customer’s needs and requirements and working out the best way to meet all of these in a practical, durable and appealing way whilst providing great value for money.
Attention to detail, and experience from the wearers point of view, inclusive of comfort, good vision, hygiene, and multi-sizing are all key considerations.
