Scorpio Agencies was formed in March 1983 together by Brett and Sandra Fleetwood.
The Business was started by Importing Textiles & Sofa Bed / Recliner mechanisms from USA and Europe from our Home-based office. We then got into Importing German Beer and Exporting New Zealand Wine to England, and then importing Mattress Tickings from Belgium.
In 1996 we purchased The Fleetwood Fabric Textile Brand , and this enabled us to enter into the New Zealand and Australian Drapery business.
In 1998 we started the business Doublerum Fishing Charters, This business is still going strong today
In 2000 The Technical fabric Era occurred, we became heavily involved in Membrane fabrics for Hospitals and Rest homes, wide-width 3-pass coated for medical purposes thru Belgium producer Plastibert.
