Our People

We have been producing knitwear in Tasmania, Australia, with a reputation for unsurpassed quality and workmanship since 1946.

Devilknits is an "Australian Disability Enterprise" employing 22 people. Seventeen of our employees have either intellectual, cognitive or developmental disabilities. We are also a Special Work of the St Vincent de Paul Society in Tasmania, and an NDIS participant workplace.

Our Vision is:

Equality in Employment; Quality in Product

At Devilknits we believe our people are our greatest asset.

Devilknits is a unique workplace which is both challenging and rewarding. The outcomes being achieved reflect the loyalty, hard work and dedication of our staff.  Our Mission Statement states our objective succinctly. “To enable people with intellectual disabilities to experience meaningful employment in a supportive environment”. 

Our team of dedicated Support workers are not only a highly skilled production team but ensure, through their leadership and dedicated support, that our NDIS participants receive the training they need and the confidence to embrace challenges within the workplace and the wider community.

All our people receive ongoing certified training. Support Staff complete the Certificate IV Disability Support and supported staff undertake various certificates e.g., Cert. I in Warehousing and Logistics.

The unique working environment created by combining a Quality Assured knitwear manufacturer together with an Australian Disability Enterprise is both challenging, and extremely rewarding. It takes commitment, patience, innovation and humour and it is thanks to our loyal staff that we continue to produce some of the highest quality knitwear in Australia whilst providing the training and support our employees need.

As always, our heartfelt thanks go to our customers! Your continuing loyalty and support enables us to provide both a diverse and satisfying workplace.

To our loyal customers, we thank you! It is your continued support which enables us to continue to provide meaningful employment and ongoing training for our NDIS participants!
