Our History

 

Graduation Regalia Pty Ltd is a manufacturer and distributor of academic regalia used in graduation ceremonies at universities and colleges throughout Australia. Initially set up by two partners in 1998, currently it is being run by Michael Falvey from Perth, Western Australia. The original objective was to provide academic regalia to graduating students, via their universities, at a price that was far more affordable than was then available. This is still the company’s primary motivation.

We have been involved in the design and manufacture of regalia since its inception. Manufacturing was initially contracted out to a facility in india and more recently the company has assisted in the setting up of a more closely tied operation in New Delhi. This provides pricing and logistical advantages not generally available to other providers.

Whilst Graduation Regalia’s initial thrust was in wholesaling to universities who in turn hired or sold regalia to graduating students, it has evolved to provide full service Regalia Management Services direct to graduates of individual universities. This has provided invaluable insights into the whole business of the provision of academic regalia.

More recently the company has embarked on a comprehensive online operation providing regalia to graduates and other individuals. In addition, the wholesale operation has expanded to include schools, colleges and other institutions such as Tafe colleges.
