With offices in 4 countries, Gelflex is committed to getting close to its customers, critical for export growth.

Since inception in 1971, Gelflex has maintained a strong focus on contact lens quality and innovation. The primary focuses have always been patient health, comfort and quality of vision.

In the past 12 months the company has invested millions in new automated technology here in Australia to meet growing global demand and currently installing more production lines in its Malaga facility to grow capacity by an additional 25%.

Quality and regulatory compliance is core to the business and means the company is approved to sell its lenses to most markets including Australia, Europe, USA, across Asia and the Middle East.
