Situated 40 kilometers west of Melbourne’s CBD and Shipping Port, ABMT Australia serves as a respected global leader in natural fiber circular knit manufacturing. Housing MerinoEdge, this facility caters to a diverse range of clientele, from local fashion retailers to international sports and outdoor brands. As ABMT’s central hub for Research and Development, the Australian base manufactures Merino Wool, Organic Cotton, and Fashion Fabric programs.
Boasting an extensive array of knitting machines, such as single jersey, double knit, and jacquard, ABMT Australia capitalizes on low liquor ratio dyeing machines and comprehensive finishing capabilities, including compaction, decatising, and brushing. This vast range enables almost infinite possibilities in circular knits. Thanks to local Australian production, the company can offer minimum order quantities as low as 500 meters per order.
The creative, experienced, and energetic team at ABMT Australia constantly strives for innovation and challenges the status quo. A strong commitment to environmental responsibility drives the company to produce high-quality products with minimal environmental impact, achieved through responsible farming, cleaner manufacturing, and the utilization of sustainable natural fibers.
ABMT Australia takes pride in its efforts to substantially reduce the environmental footprint typically associated with textile manufacturing. Cleaner production measures have been integrated into the Australian plant’s original design, and ongoing projects continuously target reductions in electricity, gas, and water consumption. The on-site 5-stage water treatment plant enables up to 85% of ABMT’s water to be reused for manufacturing or shared with third-party recycled water programs in agriculture, parklands, and industry.

Arc'teryx is a high-end Canadian design company that specializes in creating technical outdoor apparel and equipment for mountaineering and Alpine sports.
The company's headquarters is based in North Vancouver, Canada, and it has become well-known for its water-resistant Gore-Tex shell jackets, knitwear, and down parkas.
The company was established in 1989 as Rock Solid, but re-branded in 1991 as Arc'teryx, taking inspiration from the Coast Mountains in Canada. Arc'teryx has two divisions: Veilance, which is a luxury streetwear retailer, and LEAF, which is a retailer of technical gear for law enforcement and military forces.
The company has been influential in the "gorpcore" fashion movement, which involves wearing outdoor apparel in urban settings. In 2001, the company was sold to Salomon Group, and in 2005, it was re-structured under ANTA Sports after being bought out by Amer Sports.
