>> Our Values
- Respect for wool growers, wool manufacturers, and wool retailers
- To embrace and strengthen the successful operations in the wool industry
- To operate on the basis that everything does not have to be owned and controlled to be encouraged and supported
Wool Equities Limited will seek out wool business people who are effective in their sectors of the wool industry. Where opportunities exist, we will partner with their businesses to magnify their effectiveness as businesses, and remove the limitations on growth of these highly effective people. Where these businesses are effective without assistance, rather than seeking to compete against them, Wool Equities Limited will refer further business to them where appropriate.
