As one of the major wool exporters in the country, Segard Masurel has seen steady growth with a non-aggressive,” back seat” approach to the market. Growing a strong reputation, commitment to the local industry and worldly experience, Masurel Direct offers the grower new choices. The integrated supply strategy that the company operates under, means there is only one company between the grower and the end user.
The business involves trading in Wellington and direct buying/brokering under the name of Masurel Direct in Clive, Feilding, Taupo and Invercargill.
These are all services which come with a low cost structure and direct benefit to the grower.
Predominately the markets for Segard Masurel’s wool is New Zealand carpet manufacturers, China and Northern Europe. Although heavily committed to the carpet industry, the markets are diverse and varied, covering other products such as Merino, knitting, bedding, blanket and interior textiles.
