Godfrey Hirst uses state-of-the-art facilities and technologies in continuous dyeing and high resolution printing; woollen yarn spinning; synthetic yarn extrusion and twisting; tufting equipment and finishing lines (both broadloom and tiles) at plants in Australia and New Zealand. This investment provides the capabilities to produce high quality wool, nylon, polypropylene, triexta and blended carpets. Thousands of metres of Godfrey Hirst residential and commercial grade carpet are produced every day to service the needs of every market segment.
