The Tontine Group is by far Australia’s leading manufacturer and wholesaler of bedding accessories. The name is synonymous with superior quality quilts, mattress protectors, pillow protectors, and especially pillows. In fact the group manufactures almost half of all pillows sold in Australia each year. The Tontine group is part of Pacific Brands – one of Australia’s largest consumer goods companies. Through its huge stable of household names, covering home comfort, underwear, hosiery, outerwear, sportswear, and footwear, Pacific Brands touches the life of virtually every Australian consumer.
Over 130 years of dreams
The business that is now known as Tontine began as a manufacturer of flock and soft bedding back in 1870, while the actual Tontine name has been a leader in the Australian market for almost half a century. From 1984 to 2001 it was owned by Pacific Dunlop, and was part of Pacific Brands when that section was sold in 2001 to create a separate entity – Pacific Brands Holdings. A year later Tontine merged with sister company Vita Home, enabling the new Tontine Group to offer other successful national brands including Bonds Home, Sleepmaker, and a collection of private labels.
Rest assured we have the production capabilities
The Tontine Group’s national manufacturing and distribution centre is based at East Brunswick - less than 5km from the Melbourne CBD. With over 140 staff and approximately 12,000 square metres undercover, this site houses one of the largest and most automated manufacturing facilities in the world for pillows, quilts, mattress protectors, and pillow protectors. When required, it is capable of operating 24 hours a day.
We’re awake to community needs
The Tontine Group is actively involved in planned giving to the community. Tontine has donated bedding to many of the institutions that provide support to sectors of the community with special needs. These include St Vincent de Paul, Salvation Army, Very Special Kids, Yooralla, Ronald McDonald House, Melbourne City Mission, Alannah & Madeline Foundation and the Lighthouse Foundation. Tontine also supports medical and educational groups through donations of bedding and bed linen, which gives the groups the opportunity to raise funds through prize-giving at special events.
