About Red Oak School Uniforms
Red Oak is a design, manufacturing and logistics company for high quality durable School Uniforms. Red Oak was created after its parent company Captivations Teamwear started receiving a high demand of quality school wear. With the success of our unique and innovative uniforms in Schools, enjoyed by students, teachers and parents alike we realized there was a need for a separate brand that concentrated purely on School uniforms.
Red Oak is based on the same principles as Captivations Teamwear and utilizes the same high performance fabrics across all of their products. These high quality performance fabrics are enjoyed around Australia and used by elite players at Asics and Cricket Australia.
About the Managing Directors
Ben and Lou Beard
Ben and Lou are a husband and wife team who own and work in the Captivations’ business. Since November 2008 they have run and managed Captivations. In that time Ben and Lou have managed to grow the business to what it is now. The business has grown based on providing old-fashioned customer service values – make it easy for customers, deliver quality products at good value and make sure the customer gets the order on time.
Ben is the managing director and works closely with our biggest customers – ASICS, Kookaburra, IRONMAN and some key school customers. Ben is continually looking at how products can be improved or reinvented. He works closely with a select group of manufacturing partners to foster supply solutions for Captivations customers. Lou is chief admin and finance part of the Captivations team. They are a team in all ways and work hard to make sure customers are well looked after.
Lou and Ben are active members / volunteers of the schools and sports clubs their kids attend. Both are very excited about introducing new products they can offer existing and new customers. They are also passionate about expanding the business in Australia and in North America. Their many years’ experience in the industry ensures Captivations stays at the forefront of custom sportswear in Australia.
