German firm inks deal with Tasmanian wool growers
May '13
German-based Ortovox, a leading manufacturer of merino clothing for mountain climbers, has inked a deal with the Tasmanian wool farmers to purchase approx. 25-30 tonnes of merino wool. Ortovox has joined hands with the Tasmania’s foremost wool broker Roberts Ltd which TMC has partnered with for over 5 years and has worked with to procure the wool for Ortovox. 
Tasmania, an island state located in the Australian continent, is known for its high-quality, high-performance clean premium merino wool. 
Speaking to fibre2fashion, CEO of Ortovox Sportartikel Gmbh, Mr. Christian Schneidermier said, “Good merino wool is fine enough to prevent itching (18 microns at Ortovox); uniform and stable enough that the fine fibers will not break and so pure that only the smallest amount of water and soap is needed to clean it. Tasmanian wool provides us the necessary quality.”
According to him, the wide open land and the farsighted farmers with over 180 years of experience provide the sheep with the best conditions to life. “These are only a few reasons for Tasmania to produce the world's most advanced wool fiber with the highest quality and due to the fact that we also need the highest quality, we use Tasmanian wool,” he informs.
“The company is planning to import approx. 25-30 tonnes of Tasmanian wool and we see a great possibility to build and cultivate a long term relationship, where both sides end up as winners," he opines
Mr. Eric Hutchinson, marketing manager of Roberts Ltd, says, “The deal with Ortovox will promote Tasmanian wool in the European market, which will help farmers in Tasmania to expand their business in the region.”
