Why Are We Unique?

People. They are our most valued assets. We believe that each individual that works behind our doors is integral. They are the difference between good and great. Each one is accountable; each one is of the ‘highest quality,’ just a little something they have in common with our garments.
We also believe in an overriding culture of equality. We are all peers, whether we serve tea or have an office. We are all special; we all have something unique to contribute.
Our people strive to remain curious, courageous and they never settle for anything but the very best.
The Jonsson Academy
The Jonsson Academy was established to engender a culture of learning.
The vision for the Jonsson Academy is to turn every person who is inducted, whether it is a Jonsson staff member or a customer, into a fully-fledged “Jonssonite”- developing a passion for Jonsson Workwear, its values and a comprehensive knowledge of our products.
We appreciate that if we grow our customer’s business, we will ultimately grow our own. In fact, this model of mutual upliftment has been one of the biggest contributors to our success. As nobody knows his or her brand better than the customer, we immerse ourselves in his or her culture and share information, learning everything we can to put ourselves in a position to exceed all expectations.
Working together with our customers and sharing our resources and expertise is our way of showing them our respect, support and the passion we have for our and their brand.
We Manufacture Our Own Garments
Why do we consider this important? Because we can control our quality, stock levels and lead times. Our Jonsson manufacturing infrastructure, which is comprised of 8 factories, 3 raw material warehouses, an embroidery plant and a laundry, produces over 30,000 garments a day.
Jonsson Workwear is Proudly African
Africa is a beautiful continent, it is our continent, our home, and we understand it. Africa is in our soul; which is why we know how to dress her.
Our African footprint is widespread and ever expanding; we have offices in every major city in South Africa, with a large and dynamic sales team covering all cities and towns. We also extend our services into 22 other countries, a statistic that continues to grow.
Our own dedicated factories operate out of Lesotho where we employ over 3000 people. By empowering the resources of the vibrant Basotho population, we are investing in our great continent.
Growth is synonymous with excellence and to achieve the type of growth we have, we must be doing something right! Not only is the Jonsson Workwear brand the largest workwear brand on the African continent, but we are also making our mark in Australia. By embracing our Jonsson ethos and brand values and by continually developing and adapting our products to suit Australian market needs and demands, Jonsson Workwear Australia is growing.

Project Kopano“Come Alive with us! Come Share with us!”
Project Kopano, which gets its name from a Basotho word meaning ‘Unity,’ is just one of the ways that we show our staff how much we appreciate and respect them!
This special, uniquely Jonsson Workwear incentive based project brings our Basotho employees down to Durban, in order to experience the sights and sounds of our city. Their trips include visits to uShaka Marine World and Moses Mabhida Stadium. These are places and experiences we might take for granted, but after seeing them through the eyes of those who have never seen the sea, or a dolphin, we get a new appreciation for the amazing city we work and live in ourselves. Our aim is to bring all of our Basotho staff to Durban to experience our beautiful city.
