Wool that hasn’t been washed to specification presents a cost to manufacturers in money and time, and the possibility of product defects if pollutants go undetected. We operate to rigorous quality standards to ensure you receive a consistent, high quality product that’s fit for purpose.
We have layers of processes to detect contaminants throughout the washing cycle; visual checks by experienced technicians, and automated scanning and detection equipment such as metal detectors.
The technology we employ to wash greasy wool produces the lowest levels of fibre residue anywhere in the world.
After scouring, every bale is tested for moisture content, residual grease, colour and weight. If bales that do not meet agreed standards, we make the necessary adjustments.
We are accredited agents for both SGS New Zealand and the New Zealand Wool Testing Authority (NZWTA) and hold the following certifications:
As part of the continuous improvement that we pride ourselves on, management and staff from both Hawkes Bay and Timaru sites have been undertaking a Leadership Development course through Staples Rodway.
