About Us

With a creative and pioneering spirit, Ontera’s manufacturing of modular carpet tiles commenced in Northmead, Sydney in 1985 under the Feltex Modular Carpets name. As market acceptance of modular carpets grew, so too Ontera quickly expanded to become a leader in the design and supply of carpet tiles and commercial flooring throughout Australia and New Zealand. With business evolution the company name changed to Ontera Modular Carpets and Ontera operated as a subsidiary of Cavalier Corporation for several years until September 2015 when we became a member of the Milliken family of companies.
