With extensive experience, Fox & Lillie supplies all types of greasy wool and processed wool to all established and emerging wool consuming countries throughout the world

Fox & Lillie is one of the largest buyers and exporters of Australian wool and a major buyer of wool from other countries, supplying all types of greasy wool and processed wool, including wool certified under the Responsible Wool Standard (RWS).

Our experienced trading team attends and purchases wool at auction selling centres across Australia, as well as sourcing wool directly through our direct buying operation, Fox & Lillie Rural, which has wool buying stores and marketing representatives located throughout Victoria, New South Wales and South Australia.

As well as our trading and export operations, Fox & Lillie have established a sustainable, ethical and traceable wool program called Genesys, which is certified under the Responsible Wool Standard (RWS). Genesys is now the largest and leading RWS program in Australia.

Processing has been a big part of Fox & Lillie’s business since the early days, historically owning and operating scouring, carbonising and top making facilities. In 2006 Fox & Lillie invested and established with a group of Chinese investors, a specialised open top factory in China, called OTCL.

OTCL is now an industry leader in specialised, high quality open tops which it supplies to end users around the world. OTCL is an important part of Fox & Lillie’s business, with virtually all of Fox & Lillie open tops produced at the plant.

We believe every processing facility lends its own character to the wool it produces. With specially selected wool processing facilities around the world, Fox & Lillie achieves the highest standards of processing and logistical services to suit the needs of our many individual clients.

At Fox & Lillie, we take pride in our reputation and partnerships, consistently delivering an honest and reliable service. With the successful integration of Fox & Lillie export and Fox & Lillie Rural, our business provides important network benefits to our export customers and to our woolgrower clients.

With more than 70 years of experience in trading, processing and exporting wool, Fox & Lillie can ensure your delivery will meet its specifications and quality standard as well as providing you with a seamless and on-time delivery service.
