Biography
  • The Onkaparinga Woollen Company was a significant South Australian business. Many post-war migrants living at Inverbrackie were employed by the Mill in Lobethal. Some of those families are still living in the Adelaide Hills. As well as items for domestic use e.g. blankets, the Mill made cloth for the larger fashion houses, uniform material for schools in South Australia and interstate, and for the armed forces in both World Wars (the stripes on the army blankets signified your rank), as well as cabin blankets for many major airlines including Qantas and Alitalia and upholstery fabrics for the automotive industry. In October 1928, the original name, the South Australian Woollen Company was changed to Onkaparinga Woollen Company, 'so that the Company's name and the recognised trade name of its products would synchronise' (Director's report 1929). To see records of the South Australian Woollen Company search on Archival number BRG 296. Onkaparinga Textiles Ltd. operated from 1970-1991. Onkaparinga Manufactures Ltd was established in 1960 and went through several changes of name, Glenmill Distributors Pty Ltd (1970-1974), Kentish Clothes (1975), and then Onkaparinga Properties Pty Ltd from June 1975-July 1991. EOMAT Pty Ltd was an associated business name from 1978-1991. Waverley Wools Pty Ltd was established in 1962 and operated to 1991.
