Since 1983, Spill Station Australia have been supplying spill response kits and spill containment equipment. This year the celebrate 30 years of protecting the environment
This year, Spill Station Australia is celebrating 30 years of providing environment, health and safety solutions to government and industry in Australia and around the world.
When current CEO Bruce Cartwright founded the business in 1983, Spill Station Australia was known as Corrosion Concepts and supplied chemical treatments such as rust prevention and fabric protection to Australian Defence Force (ADF).
This experience highlighted a need for a uniform spill response system to deal with the inevitable spills that occur when dealing with liquids in the workplace. After extensive field testing with the ADF, Bruce Cartwright launched the world's first mobile bin spill kit containing PPE, absorbents, containment booms and waste disposal bags. This spill kit format is the template still used by spill control companies around the world.
Nathan Cartwright is the current managing director and the second generation of this Australian company. When asked how Spill Station has maintained its leading position in a crowded marketplace he said, œThere have been constant changes in environment, health and safety legislation and regulation over the last 30 years. This dynamic regulatory environment has seen the range of solutions supplied by Spill Station Australia expand to meet the demands of industry both in Australia and internationally.
œOur desire to innovate and provide the most cost effective and complete solutions to our database of over 7000 major customers around the globe ensures they keep on coming back to Spill Station for our tried and proven compliance solutions.
