Business Capability Adviser, Chris Reilly assessed UBF’s need and realised the potential that they had in contributing to local industry and quickly introduced them to Victoria Government’s Department of Business and Innovation.
 
UBF are Australia’s largest supplier of processes textile fibre products, including Building Products for the Residential and Commercial markets, industry peer The Council of Textile and Fashion Industries of Australia recognised that UBF have displayed a sustained contribution to manufacturing excellence over the past five years and deservedly nominated them as an inductee at the 2012 Victorian Manufacturing Hall of Fame.
