Educate. Associate. Advocate

Hardware Australia is a not for profit association which represents independent hardware retailers and suppliers, and provides benefits and value to you as a member through, education, association and advocating.

Through education, we hope to keep our members up to date on current industrial relations changes, improve service standards by providing industry-specific training, and secure the future of the industry by highlighting industry career pathways.

Our awards nights and events provide an avenue for the industry to come together and connect with industry peers through association.

We are passionate about the independent hardware industry, and will continue to fight for the future of our industry by advocating on behalf of our members. This includes lobbying against inappropriate development and legislation that may impact hardware businesses, and working to secure government funding for industry programs and initiatives.

“We aim to support members with resources and skills to grow their businesses and further strengthen the independent hardware industry”
