1987. A major expansion at the site was completed in
2004, with a further $2 million expansion following in
2007. In the past five years, the company has invested $11
million in its Albury factory.
Production from the Albury plant is responsible for
approximately 70 per cent of Geofabrics' Australian
revenue, making it the single most important production
facility in the group. The company's products are
distributed throughout Australia and internationally.
The product range includes bidim and Megaflo, which was
chosen as the drainage system for six FIFA World Cup
soccer venues in South Africa in 2009.
Geofabrics products also played a part in the Sydney 2000
Olympic Games, with segments of the opening ceremony
performed on mats manufactured by Geofabrics.
"While the product produced at the Albury factory is used
across Australia in the infrastructure and construction
sector, it is probably best known as the grey material many
people would have observed during construction of the
recently completed Woomargama and Coolac bypasses,
just north of Albury," Mr Yen said.
Geofabrics is a member of the Albury Northside
Chamber of Commerce. The company actively supports
various local causes and also assists a number of local
community organisations. Geofabrics is involved with
the Yackandandah Folk Festival, local solar initiatives and
education and has also provided fabric donations to the
State Emergency Service (SES) for soil containment and
