WA Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries

Premier Mark McGowan recently announced significant changes to the way the public sector will be structured, seeing the number of WA Government departments reduced from 41 to 25.

The changes are designed to provide better services to the community and maximise opportunities to deliver a more efficient and effective public sector for all West Australians.

The Department of Culture and the Arts, Department of Sport and Recreation, Department of Racing, Gaming and Liquor, and the local government and office of multicultural interests functions of the Department of Local Government and Communities will amalgamate to establish the Department of Local Government, Sport and Cultural Industries. The Department of Aboriginal Affairs’ Aboriginal History Research Unit has also joined the new ​Department. 

Dyenamic Sublimation

Dye Sublimation Printing is a process of applying a heat sensitive ink to fabric which permanently dyes the fabric. This involves printing the inks onto a specialised paper which is then laid onto the fabric and run through a heat press at a high temperature and pressure. The ink is then transferred permanently into the weave of the fabric.

The Managing Director, Chris Smith, was a former Test Cricketer for England & then Chief Executive of the Western Australian Cricket Association (WACA) for 7 years. In 2000, he purchased Embroidery WA, and at the time the company had 2 staff members. Embroidery WA now employs 40 staff and embroiders over 20,000 garments every week…and has done so for many years.

Having experienced their own difficulties with Dye Sublimated sports clothing, Chris embarked on a new venture with the intention of simplifying & perfecting the process.

They  opened our doors in 2013 & now employ 22 full time staff. They are extremely proud of their growing reputation for quality, consistency & quick turnaround times. Their customers tell them that they are the most reliable manufacturer of this type of sports clothing in Australia. Their staff turnover is almost zero and has been for many years…as a consequence of this you are assured of dealing with the same staff year after year.

Being a good bowler is about reliability, quality and precision. It is these same core principles that the Hensell Family has been successfully employing since it began to manufacture the Henselite Lawn Bowl in Australia, almost eighty years ago.

It was a passion for bowls and a drive for consistency that led the late R. W. Hensell to first invent the plastic bowl in 1930. The most significant innovation in Lawn Bowls in the history of the game, the move to plastic from wood and rubber bowls allowed the bowl to maintain its shape under varying climatic conditions.

Today they are still just as passionate about bowls and making the most accurate bowls in the world. Each bowl that comes out of our Melbourne factory is a result of highly-tuned precision engineering and we are always striving to better our product.

As the game of lawn bowls has changed over the years, so too has Henselite. What started out as a small family business making one style of lawn bowl, now makes a bowl to suit the local conditions wherever you are in the world and supplies clothing, bags and accessories for the complete bowler.

Now overseen by the 4th generation of Hensells, Henselite is the biggest manufacturer and distributor of Lawn Bowls worldwide and has won 3 Australian Export Awards and been inducted into the Helms Foundation Hall of Fame in the U.S.A. for outstanding achievement in Lawn Bowls.

They are pleased to be able to give back to the sport that has fostered the growth of this great Australian company. Henselite is proud to have supported bowls and bowlers at all levels of the game including through the sponsorship of development programs such as Bowls Australia’s Get on the Green, instigating and sponsoring the first Australian Schoolboy Championships, supporting Greenkeeper Associations and supporting bowls for people with disabilities through organizations such as Australian Blind Bowlers Association. Internationally Henselite has worked to promote and develop the sport throughout Asia including supplying equipment for China’s first bowling green in Guangzhou. Henselite has contributed financially to every World Championships since they began in 1966 as well as continuing to individually support many of the World’s top bowlers and rising stars.

Henselite is not standing still. Bowls continues to change. As a new generation of bowlers discovers the excitement of this great sport while adapting when, where and how it is played to meet the modern lifestyle, Henselite will continue to create products that suit the twenty-first century bowler but also carry on the company’s tradition of reliability, quality and precision.
