Specialty Group was
established by Peter Leipnik, an Industrial Chemist, in
November 1978 with one small powder coating line which
produced label fabrics. Since this time, the company has
grown into one of the largest finishing mills in Australia
which produces over 900 different types of technical
textiles for some 20 Industries. The company works primarily
with 3 different technologies: solvent and aqueas coatings,
textile laminating, and fiberglass and carbon composites.
The Specialty Group has seen robust growth of its coated
fabrics particularly in the snowsports outerwear sector to
some of the world’s largest clothing brands.
