THE diversity of high-tech, innovative
manufacturing businesses operating in the Albury-
Wodonga region has grown exponentially in the
last few years and has without doubt supported
the region through the economic downturn.
A leading example is Geofabrics Australasia, which
has been manufacturing world-class, geo-synthetic fabrics
in Albury for 25 years.
These are permeable fabrics which are used to separate,
filter, reinforce, protect or drain and are primarily used in
the construction industry.
Geofabrics' product range and expertise covers extensive
areas of application including drainage and filtration;
separation and reinforcement; road maintenance and
rehabilitation; mine remediation; waste containment; liner
protection; and erosion protection.
The company commenced business in 1978, initially as
distributor of the bidim range of geo-textiles, and today
has branches located in all of Australia's major cities and a
number of regional areas.
"Geofabrics is the only manufacturer of industrial geo-
synthetics in Australia and leads the development of
research and technology in this field," Howard Yen,
Operations Manager of the Albury site said.
The company employs 55 people at the Albury plant and
more than 150 across Australia, with additional personnel
based in New Zealand. Its other manufacturing plant is
located in Molendinar, Queensland.
Geofabrics opened its factory in North Albury In mid-
