Continuous diversification and growth
Autex was founded in 1967 as a manufacturer of unique jute-based carpet under-felts and specialty backings for vinyl flooring. Soon afterwards we established a plant to make needle-punched polypropylene carpets, including our very successful DIY carpet tile.
Our carpet range rapidly expanded and in the 1980s we diversified into new product areas, including bonded polyester for use in furniture, bedware and, later, insulation. In the 1990s we expanded into Australia, where Autex now has manufacturing operations in Melbourne, Sydney, Perth and Queensland.
We have continued to expand into new high-tech areas of business and are market leaders in a number of specialized sectors. Today Autex is the leading manufacturer of non-woven textiles in New Zealand and a major player in the Australian textile market.
From manufacturing beginnings, we’ve built on our strong textile engineering base to increasingly focus on the proactive development of market-based solutions. We have a long history of developing and adapting techniques and products specifically for the New Zealand and growing export markets, including niche products to meet specialized customer needs.
