 What do Marathon Clients say about Marathon Embroidery Threads? 
(NB:  Previously, we were known as Shin Woo Australia Pty Ltd.)


"I have dealt with Shin Woo for many years.  They have always had a very comprehensive range of colours at very competitive prices to meet all our needs.  Susie's service and delivery have been outstanding with very quick turnaround times.  She has always been very professional with her attention to customer service.  I would like to highly recommend to any company requiring their service."  - Jack Quinns, Managing Director, Hip Pocket Workwear Echuca  (VIC)


Why are Shin Woo special?  Well, take this example.  Once we forgot to place an order when we should have - and of course, we had to finish the production run by the next day.  In desperation we rang Susie Paek at 9pm in the evening.  Susie delivered the thread we needed that night, and we met our delivery target.  Great service! - Laura/ Paul Lee, Proprietors, TD Apparel Pty Ltd (VIC)


In all the years we have been dealing with Shin Woo Australia, we can honestly say that we have never had any problems.  The products are of high quality, always have stock and as soon as we order we get it the same day or the next morning.  Absolute pleasure to deal with.  Hassle free ordering and sending!  - Annette Wilkinson, General Manager, Embroidered Club Sportswear Pty Ltd  (VIC)


Very happy with the service we have had over the past 14 years.  Very happy with the quality of the thread.  - Val Sheehan, Production Manager,  Top Caps Pty Ltd  (VIC)


My experience with the Marathon Cottons and Susie have been both positive.  The products are very competitively prices and Susie is always willing to help.  I recommend you give the a try.  - Lee Barett, Director, Spitting Image (VIC)


Our company has dealt with Shin Woo in excess of 8 years and have always found their product/ service and personnel first class.  Excellent delivery times & always helpful and plenty of stock.  - Mick Simmons, Director, Frankston Embroidery Pty Ltd  (VIC)


Have always found Shin Woo to provide a quality product at a competitive price.  They are flexible on delivery and when urgent have delivered the thread within the day.  Shin Woo are a great supplier that helps my business to grow.  - Martin Bennett, Director, Austcoast Embroidery Pty Ltd  (VIC)


Over the past 12 years, we have been using Shin Woo Australia.  I have found everyone at Shin Woo very helpful.  I love the vibrant colour range of the cottons and the quality very good.  When I order any product the delivery time has always been excellent.  Their prices are also very good and we will continue to use the products in the future.  - Leanne Worthington, Proprietor,  J&M Clothing  (VIC)


We have been dealing with Shin Woo for the past 12 years.  During this period, we have found that their quality products,  competitive prices and excellent service have been a real bonus to our company.  - Vicki & Craig Little, Directors,  LT Little Pty Ltd  (TAS)
