Why Us

Transparency

We believe we can offer the fairest results of all classing operations.

The unique ownership structure of our company is specifically designed so that no one shareholder or shareholder group has a controlling stake in the business. This means that all classing decisions are made unencumbered by bias or coercion.

 

Accuracy

Our facilities offer superior conditions systems and equipment to ensure we provide a totally neutral, independent and self-sustaining operation.

We have the most technically advanced passive air conditioning system in the industry. This ensures that our samples are always tested with optimum moisture content and our testing equipment is operating in ideal conditions. Not only does this benefit Australian growers and merchants, but will also meet the future needs of our mill customers that are increasingly demanding data from cotton classed using the best available technology.

 

Efficiency

ProClass is capable of handling close to 40,000 cotton samples per day. We are able to provide the most efficient classing service available by today's standards, ensuring that growers receive their crop proceeds promptly from their nominated merchant, and merchants promptly receive the required information to get their purchased bales into their supply chain.

 

Helpfulness

ProClass is much more than a classing service - we are an information resource. Take advantage of our local knowledge and expertise of cotton classification in Australia. You may wish to talk with our classing staff about HVI test results or about manual classification. They are available to answer your questions at any time.

ProClass is Australia's leading cotton classing operation. Fully independent, we operate two modern cotton classing facilities servicing Australian cotton growers and merchants. The first is located at head office in Goondiwindi, Queensland, right in the heart of Australia's traditional cotton belt. The second is situated at Griffith, NSW, the hub of the rapidly expanding cotton growing region in southern NSW. At present, ProClass classes approximately 65% of the cotton produced in Australia.

Our mantra is "Professional Independent Classing" and that is exactly what we provide. This is done with the help of a team of industry professionals with long term domestic and international experience, a fleet of the most up to date cotton testing equipment (HVI machines), a state-of-the-art humidification and environment conditioning system and a pro-active, forward thinking Board of Directors.

ProClass is a full participating member of the Cotton Classer's Association of Australia (CCAA). We are fully compliant with the CCAA's Best Management Practice for cotton classing and have been since that program's inception.

In 2016 the Goondiwindi facility was accredited under the International Cotton Association Laboratory Certification Scheme. It is planned for the Griffith facility to be accredited under this scheme in the near future.

The ProClass service is open to all cotton growers and merchants.
