Here at AAC we like to do a little maths. At a recent team meeting someone asked “I wonder how many people have worn one of our Tyvek Wristbands?”. What followed blew our minds.
Tyvek Wristbands are one of the most commonly used products in Australia. Being the sole manufacturer of these products, and having supplied them since 1997, we certainly have our finger on the pulse when it comes to their usage!
Let’s consider just the past 7 years. AAC has produced 18,000,000 to 24,000,000 Tyvek wristbands annually during that period of time. A safe bet is that we have manufactured 140 million Tyvek wristbands since 2009. That is 6-7 wristbands for every person currently living in Australia!
Wow. And this hasn’t even included all the wristbands we produced from 1997 to 2009, nor does it include the plastic, vinyl and woven bands AAC has supplied to countless events, festivals and venues.
Firstly, consider where these wristbands have been used. From music festivals, schools and night clubs to aquatic centres, tourist attractions and events, our wristbands have been worn by everyone from the age of 1-100 and with interests ranging from one extreme to the other.
Our geographical coverage is extensive, with wristbands supplied to every corner of Australia. From far north QLD, the NT and WA to all major capital and regional cities, AAC supplies its wristbands to a broader range of businesses and locations that any other supplier.
Therefore, if you are reading this, there is an exceptionally high chance that at some point you have worn one of our Tyvek wristbands, which is a pretty great thing for us to say! It is a safe guess that half of the people living in Australia have worn a wristband made by AAC.
