In 1960 a family owned business called New Zealand Flock and Textiles which had been in operation since 1937 decided it was time to extend its market and commence production of its range of recycled textile products in Auckland.
Thus Textile Products was formed.
While in the early years concentrating on waddings for the bedding trade the introduction of a needlepuncher extended the range to include carpet underlays and felts.
This followed by the purchase of a LaRoche opening machine to aid in the proper preparation of the fibres and also extending the range of fibres and wastes that could be recycled.
Another natural progression was into the spray and more recently thermobonding fields enabling the company even more versatility in manufacturing.
Though we specialise in the reclamation and recycling of all types of textile wastes we also utilize a wide variety of virgin natural and man made fibres.
From 4 staff in the beginning that did everything the company now employs 25 people utilizing 36,000 sq ft of factory space.
We are always ready to listen to our customers requirements and work with them to develop new products.
What an amazing community based project, Onehunga High School students Building a house with the support and guidance of the Onehunga One Tree Hill Rotary Club and Habitat for Humanity as the client. We approached local business for help and when we put the idea of the project to Bob Willis of Textile Products he pledged his support. Textile products could see the benefits of how the house build could enhance student learning and improve the life of a deserving family. The wool based insulation supplied by Textile Products is perfect for working with students. It’s easy to install, minimal tools required for cutting and best of all safe with no glass fibres and risk of a rash or itching. We don’t think you could get a better insulation product.Onehunga High School
