Innovative designers of interior acoustics. We are carbon neutral #ineverythingwedo. Have an idea? We’d love to work with you.

From humble beginnings more than 50 years ago, Autex Acoustics® has grown to serve over 18 export markets, with manufacturing and finishing networks in four countries. Autex Acoustics is a leader in the development and manufacturing of non-woven architectural textiles, supplying an increasingly sophisticated range of products to the building industry.

Our roots lie in the highly regulated New Zealand economy of the 1960s and 1970s. The family-based company—now with the third generation making its mark—has grown into one of Australasia’s manufacturing success stories as a leader in modern acoustic products and environmentally friendly polyester insulation.

Through the 1980s we diversified moving into new markets and learnt to innovate in order to remain competitive within our industry. In 1986 we moved into 702 Rosebank Road where we have remained to this day.

The 1990s brought a period of consolidation as the business focus moved towards innovating in the polyester product space. As offices were established in Australia, each move was aligned with a restructure of the business. With a new head office and factory being built in 1998 and celebrations for reaching 25 years in business, it was an event filled decade.

The 2000s were a period of specialisation as we developed our expertise and positioned ourselves as fibre and textiles specialists in the building industry. The South Island sales office was opened while plants were established in Perth and the Gold Coast.

During this decade we saw a shift in the market as Architects and Designers asked for more custom acoustic design in collaboration with manufacturers and suppliers. We needed to be able to speak the language, so hired our first two Industrial Designers.

While this decade is in it's early stages, a lot has still happened. Our design team has continued to grow allowing for our business to venture into even newer territory. Collaborations with Emma Hayes and Novii has created innovative visuals and design. While sustianability has been at the forefront of our operations decades, we have continued to push, achieving carbon neutrality.
