Wool Partners refutes allegations of H Dawson

There have been recent public spats between two reputed wool organizations in New Zealand. On one side are ranged H Dawson & Sons Co NZ Ltd and on the other is Wool Partners International Limited. H Dawson is alleging that Wool Partners is under the impression that 'its buyers like the yarn spinners and carpet manufacturers are making profits', which is not actually the reality.

To get to the depth of the story, fibre2fashion spoke to CEO's of both companies. Mr. Keith Cowan, MD of H Dawson to make clear his stand and Mr Iain Abercrombie of Wool Partners International Limited who refuted all allegations made by Mr Cowan.

Mr Cowan said, “Wool Partners International assumes that, yarn spinners and carpet manufacturers are making a fortune from their products at present when in real terms, there is no double price available for New Zealand farmers, and all segments of the industry are really struggling to make any profit in this global recession”.

To which Mr Abercrombie retorted by saying that, “They are trying to protect their position in the New Zealand Wool industry by trying to discredit Wool Partners International through a campaign of misinformation”. Delving out some facts he said, “We are the only fully integrated New Zealand wool procurement and marketing company that can take wool from farm to floor”.

He added by saying that, “Wool Partners is the only organisation with a brand that is currently used by 122 manufacturers worldwide (140 Licensees) and only company to have a marketing division in four continents and over 50 percent of all strong wool that is exported from NZ ends up in a product that is branded with 'Fernmark'.”
