Gem Schoolwear was established in 1968 and the first school uniform was sold in 1976.
We employ over a 100 staff in our stores and approximately 250 machinists in the 8 factories that produce uniforms made in SOUTH AFRICA by South Africans. They are all in our full time employment – creating the much needed jobs that our Government is so desperately trying to address and we are proud to say that although we manufacture in SA against all odds we do compete with the chain stores on price and quality.
GEM SCHOOLWEAR employs in the retail division an additional 250 school leavers, university and technikon students for approximately 8 weeks to work as sales assistants in the Back to School season creating again employment and the much needed experience to our future.
GEM SCHOOLWEAR is one of the largest Schoolwear manufacturer, wholesaler and retailer of Schoolwear in SOUTH AFRICA. We supply to Dealers, School Shops, NGO’s, Corporates, Government Deptartments, Municipalities, Sports Departments and Social Welfare organisations.
