How We Do It
Selling direct to export
AME Direct provides wool growers with a gateway to international clients. Enjoy access to a worldwide network of manufacturers who use both greasy and processed wools. Customers can sell wool direct to export at our Ararat, Ballarat, Kilmore, Laverton North or Bendigo stores. We also offer on-farm consultation by appointment.
“We want to see a sustainable wool industry in Australia and to achieve that, the grower needs to be receiving the best price for their wool.”
Chris Kelly, Director
Open and transparent relationships
There are multiple advantages to going direct — higher prices, lower selling costs and more feedback between customers and growers. This approach also gives wool growers direct access to informed advice on the strength of international markets and the best price for their products.
Creating tailored solutions
AME has markets worldwide, supplying all wool types from fine merino wool, through to broad micro crossbred types. AME also produce wool tops along with scoured and carbonised products generating a large demand across a wide range of types.
“At AME, we produce specialty wool tops for our international clients so, in that way, the grower is selling directly to a wool consumer rather than a middleman.”
We partner with Wool Solutions, who offer all brokering services for producers using the auction system. We work together to create a tailored solution that achieves the best results for our growers.
