Tontine Insulation - Media Release
Tontine Insulation's parent company, United
Bonded Fabrics (UBF) Pty. Ltd, is pleased to announce the
acquisition of the non-woven business of The Smith Family.
The Smith Family ("TSF") is a national Australian independent
children's charity that helps disadvantaged children by unlocking
opportunities through education and learning. As part of its
charitable operations TSF owns and operates two commercial
businesses, namely clothing recycling (collection and sale of
recycled clothing throughout NSW and to export markets) and
non-woven technical textile manufacturing operations.
Since its original formation, TSF's non-wovens business has
grown to become an integrated designer, manufacturer and
distributor of recycled and virgin fibre textile products. TSF's
manufacturing plant is located in NSW and combines a variety of
processes such as carding, needle-punching and thermal bonding to
manufacture a wide range of fabrics and felt. These processes have
the same technology base and are complimentary to those used by
UBF, and merging these capabilities will result in both synergies
in manufacture and opportunity in further product innovation.
Some of TSF's products include:
- Carpet underlay
- Automotive fabrics
- Wall coverings
- Pin boards
- Liquid filtration
- Cloth wipes
UBF, Tontine Insulation and The Smith Family look forward
to the merging of these businesses creating a world class and
sustainable manufacturing enterprise to benefit all stakeholders
including staff and customers.
