As a wholly owned Australian company TIC has embedded circular economy principles in its operation and design for over 25 years, beginning with a world first hanger re-use program for Australian retailers in 1989, to the launch in 2016 of Australia’s first automated mattress deconstruction plant. TIC is committed to offering its Retail customers an option for problem items that would otherwise be considered waste. As company that is built on innovation, TIC creates bespoke solutions that deliver process efficiency, reduces operational costs, and environmental outcomes whilst allowing its customers to focus on their core business.

Embedded in TIC Group’s operations are the principles of circular economy, that is, developing smarter business design and technology to extend the lifecycle of a product.
