kiwi firm puts new spin on wool  -  buy air conditioner online
New Zealand people used to on the sheep's back make a living.
New Zealand has a long history in textile wool into carpets and garments, but Auckland-
Texus fiber Re, a Texas-based textile company, wants to use our understanding of wool to push wool in a new direction, producing high brands
Wool properties
Textiles for industrial use-
Think about filters for air conditioners or masks that protect workers from the inhalation of contaminants.
Texus fiber's founder and CEO, Nick Davenport, has more than 20 years of experience producing foam and other soft fiber industrial components through his company Nexus Foams.
The job gave him a chance.
He said that he had an in-depth understanding of the functions of different materials and how customers use them in industry, so when he was introduced to wool, he was immediately moved by these possibilities.
"The more I dive into it, the more I can see some incredible natural functions based on wool fibers and powerful value propositions on how they can be applied to industrial applications.
Davenport's research enabled him to connect with AgResearch and to purchase the "non-
Christchurch's "non-woven" production line.
"Basically, it's a machine where you put the fiber at one end and push out a wonderful textile at the other end," he said . ".
"It controls composition all the time.
"This technology provides him with the platform he needs to start a company, complementing his own industry insights.
Texus fiber was formally established in 2011.
Davenport says the functional properties of individual air filters made of wool are the most obvious market opportunities to solve first.
"The wool is very efficient when it is used for breathing space.
It can do static electricity, so it's like a dust magnet.
But the wool filter is really cute, not only is it very good to capture particles, but the breathing resistance is very low, so combined with its ability to manage moisture, its breathability becomes a very strong attribute.
He said: "The strong wool industry tradition in New Zealand means that we are able to grow and process high-quality wool fibers efficiently here.
"More importantly, we are also home to some of the best scientific research in the world in this field that has been
Traditional market for wool
Mainly carpets.
More and more turn to synthetic alternatives.
"What Texus is doing is taking advantage of this science, but focusing on the market that appreciates fiber properties, which is the technology market, not the consumer market.
"Texus fiber wants to inject innovation in several ways.
Wool, for example, may vary a lot, so part of the company's secret is to understand and separate the source of wool with specific properties and to determine the achievement of consistent, high
Quality and scalable supply of raw materials.
The company's vision is also to see Texus as an ingredient brand for other products as manufacturers do a good job in the following
Well-known technologies such as GoreTex.
Despite not actively selling its personal breath filters, Texus has passed word-of-
Including major manufacturers of safety equipment in South Africa and Australia.
But Davenport says it's just the tip of the iceberg.
The global filter market alone amounted to $16 billion ($20. 4 billion)annually.
Last year, Texas received global investment from day one (GD1)
A fund composed of angel investments (early-stage)
Government investment company Sparkbox-
New Zealand Venture Capital Fund (NZVIF)
And GD1 nomination.
Greg Sitters, Sparkbox's chief executive and chief executive, cited three main factors that caught investors' attention: it took advantage of New Zealand's core strength --
Our scientific understanding of wool
Looking for new markets suitable for fiber properties;
The founder's experience;
And the technology's important market in the world.
The company's next target is China, which is increasingly concerned about the amount and toxicity of dust in the air, making it a natural target for the company's filtration technology.
