Textiles New Zealand, the membership-based industry organization representing the four contributing sectors – textiles, carpet, footwear and apparel – of the New Zealand textiles industry, has began an initiative to form Fibrenz, an all encompassing textile industry market driven organization.
 
For the purpose, Textiles New Zealand is currently holding discussions with representatives of various fibres groups, including natural as well as synthetic fibre groups.
 
“Textiles New Zealand, along with other key members of the wool, manufacturing and education industries, believes it is possible to design a unified fibre initiative that can create an integrated economic solution for the benefit of the whole industry, from grower, processor, manufacturer to exporter, naming this concept Fibrenz,” the association says on its website.
 
According to the association, the purpose of Fibrenz will be to provide and service the fibre industry from grower to processor and manufacturer to exporter. The key objectives of the proposed organization include: Information, Education, Inclusion, Advocacy and Partnership.
 
The Fibrenz Initiative Proposal has already received committed support from the farmer owned investment company Wool Equities, Campaign for Wool and Shear NZ, in addition to Textiles NZ.
 
The proposal states that creation of Fibrenz will result in the formation of one single overarching body that will coordinate the industry on a day-to-day basis and be the recognized Government Partner for joint initiatives.
 
It will assist each individual company take stock of its current situation and where possible gain commitment from it to proceed, in many cases by amalgamation or in some by closure.
 
Fibrenz would also be tasked with creating and giving a New Zealand Made identity in global markets, and introducing work related schemes that require Government intervention such as limited work-for-the-dole start up initiatives.
