Buyer Testimonials

Combined with their strong and diverse wool industry experience, the wonderful provenance and quality of Tasmanian grown wool, we feel Al  & Rob will make a great contribution towards building an even more robust market position for Tasmanian grown wool.

United Wool Co. Pty. Ltd.

Adding to their strong connections across the existing Australian Export Sector, Al & Rob have developed unique and valuable relationships with global manufacturers, end users and retail labels. A simple and effective decision to offer Tasmanian Wool to market “stored in Melbourne” is one seemingly minor point of difference which can attract far wider competition on every bale offered.
