Elders, the leading Australian agribusiness and iconic brand in rural and regional Australia, has announced that it has re-joined the Australian Wool Exchange Limited (AWEX), making the first step to further represent its clients and have a say in the decision making process of Australia’s wool industry.
According to the news release by Elders, both organisations have the same interests and shared goals, so expanding the collaboration is crucial for securing the future of Australian woolgrowers and wool classers.
Elders is one of the leading brokers of Australian greasy wool and has the products, services and facilities needed to assist growers maximise returns from their wool.
“As a not for profit organisation we rely on the support of members to trial, develop and improve wool standards across Australia. Elders is an important player in the wool industry, and has a wealth of knowledge which will be critical in achieving these goals. Elders was a foundation member of the exchange back in 1994, playing a key role in developing its services and functions, so it is great to be able to re-establish this relationship once again,” said AWEX Chief Executive Officer Mark Grave.
“Elders has always maintained a strong relationship with AWEX; however, their renewed focus on quality issues has encouraged us to again become involved at a decision making level. Elders is keen to be actively involved with AWEX and to represent its clients through industry decision making,” said Simon Hogan Manager of Elders’ wool selling centres.
