This month the Australian Made Campaign is thrilled to welcome Geelong Textiles Australia (GTA) as one of its newest licensees.
Founded in 1971, GTA specialises in weaving Australian wool and blended products into commercial and commissioned woven products.
Currently employing 23 staff at its Geelong facilities, GTA is committed to manufacturing in Australia for the long-term.
Mr Quentin Vahl Meyer, Director of Geelong Textiles Australia, explained, “We consistently upgrade our machines to maintain a technological edge in the market and produce quality fabrics thanks to Australian yarns and a dedicated team of professionals, who are passionate about excellence and customer service.
Geelong Textiles Australia offers premium Australian Made products. Many people in Australia are coming back to Australian and Australian-made products, and we have found that they will pay a premium for it. This is often the case with consumers overseas as well, so it is essential for us to display our Australian credentials.
The Australian Made logo will give us a competitive advantage in the market and enhance our products when customers are deciding to buy.”
The Australian Made logo helps local manufacturers and growers communicate their Australian Made credentials with authority and credibility.
“Geelong Textiles Australia is an example of Australian manufacturing excellence. They supply a wide variety of Australian-made fabrics to the Australian marketplace and international buyers.
It’s clear that Geelong Textiles Australia has enormous pride and passion for producing the highest quality products right here in Australia, while at the same time, supporting Aussie jobs and innovation,” Australian Made Campaign Chief Executive, Ben Lazzaro, said.
