Staff numbers on the up at wool spinners’ local branch


Staff numbers continue to rise at the Canterbury Wool Spinners Oamaru site.

Latest figures, supplied by a spokesperson for the company, show 85 people are now employed at the site.

“Numbers are slowly increasing,” the spokesperson said.

“It is good for the people concerned and it is good for the local Oamaru economy.”

Canterbury Wool Spinners purchased the Oamaru site and plant earlier this year and made more than 190 people redundant at the time.

Since then, the new owners have gradually re-employed some of the original staff and have lifted the level of employment up to the current levels.
