Beaulieu positioned for growth
Well known as a manufacturer of quality jacquard woven fabrics suitable for a wide range of commercial and domestic applications, Beaulieu Pacific supplies to leading fabric wholesalers throughout Australia, New Zealand and Asia.
The company, which has been operating in the Australian market for 23 years, services a number of markets: in the domestic sector it specialises in drapery, window furnishings, window blinds and upholstery; in the commercial sector it caters to specified projects, drapery, window furnishings, window blinds, office and partition screens, upholstery, bedheads and cushions. It also supplies a wide range of drapery, privacy screens, bedspreads and upholstery to the healthcare sector.
Beaulieu general manager Scott Barwick said the company’s industry leading reputation had led to a number of significant projects. “Our quality commercial-grade fabrics are suitable for applications such as window furnishings, wall panelling, screening, upholstery and top of bed. Recent high-profile Australian commercial projects include Sheraton, Hilton and Hyatt hotels, the Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney, and the Olivia Newton John Cancer & Wellness Centre in Melbourne.”
The company’s profile as part of Belgium-based global enterprise Belgotex International meant it was able to offer a distinct point of difference to the Australian market, he confirmed.
“Beaulieu Fabrics in Belgium allow us direct access to the very latest in European design and colour trends. We also boast a specialist team of in-house textile designers who can develop exclusive designs tailored to exact requirements.”
“Another point of difference is our ability to weave across a variety of widths, to a maximum of 280cm, a distinct advantage given growing demand for wider width products. This will be further enhanced with the addition of greater width capacity of 320cm scheduled for launch later in the year, once new equipment has been commissioned.”
The company was also committed to servicing growing demand for eco-friendly products, Barwick confirmed. “The majority of our yarn is Oeko-tex certified and we conduct ongoing research into new yarns, in particular environmentally sustainable and ‘green’ alternatives.”
Looking to the future, Beaulieu Pacific’s other areas of innovation focused on highly specialised products designed to meet specific requirements.
“Some of the newer or products or processes under development include noise reduction fabrics; fabrics treated for the healthcare industry (antimicrobial); low melt polyester for window blinds – a green alternative to coated or blockout fabrics; and the ability to transfer print at extra wide widths.”
