Grow with PGW Wool

We operate four processing centres throughout New Zealand located at Napier, Christchurch, Mosgiel and Invercargill. Our nationwide team of wool specialists provides a comprehensive range of high-quality services to our grower clients and to international and local wool processors.

Add value to your wool business

Through our International sales and marketing company, Bloch & Behrens Wool (NZ) Ltd, we can offer wool growers price certainty. Securing wool long term adds certainty to the supply chain and manages price fluctuations.

Bloch & Behrens has direct relationships with manufacturers around the world, many of whom are seeking supply and price certainty. As a result, we can offer growers fixed price forward contracts while the wool is growing on the sheep’s back. 

We auction significant quantities of wool throughout the wool selling season at New Zealand's two key auction houses, based in Napier and Christchurch. We drive efficiency by maintaining good working relationships with testing houses, exporters, transporters, scours, dumpers, and shipping agencies.
