The Victorian State Minister for Environment and Climate Change, The Hon Ryan Smith visited Ecotech recently to learn more about the design and development of environmental monitoring systems.
Touring different divisions at the Knoxfield headquarters, The Hon Ryan Smith covered production and testing, research and development, a wind tunnel calibration facility as well as environmental reporting services, which provides real-time data from over 360 sites to a diverse range of customers.
He was impressed by the unique and innovative approach of the company in constantly developing environmental solutions for worldwide distribution.
The company has been working closely with the Environment Protection Authority (EPA) Victoria for over 20 years and also has a long association with Transurban CityLink, a leading international toll road developer with assets in Australia and emerging interests in North America.
Ecotech has also developed in partnership with the University of Wollongong, a comprehensive greenhouse analyser, which continuously measures all principal greenhouse gases.
According to Ecotech Director and Founder, Robert Dal Sasso, as one of only a few companies manufacturing internationally approved air quality analysers and air monitoring systems, their products address a niche market and are exported to over 65 countries. Ecotech is also a world leader in the design and supply of precursor gas monitoring systems.
Ecotech was recently nominated as a finalist in the Governor of Victoria Export Awards 2011, which will be announced on 19 October 2011.
